Royal Oak


Located bang in the centre of the well-known Columbia Road, The Royal Oak is Bethnal Green’s most loved pub. The pub has been a local landmark for over a century and has become a beloved gathering place for locals and visitors alike. With its famous flower market on Sundays, it’s the perfect spot to retreat to after shopping and to grab one of our delicious Sunday Roasts. 

The menu features a range of classic British dishes, including fish and chips, bangers and mash, and pie and mash, as well as more contemporary options such as vegetarian and vegan offerings. Expect no-nonsense pub grub, spectacular Sunday Roasts and impressive selection on the beer front.
