Our beers

Beer pumps - Ironbridge Brew, Bass and Copper Beech‘Steady’ Stephen Hornbuckle is responsible for organising our selection of cask ales. In the early 1990s Stephen started introducing a varied choice of beers, ranging from Milds, bitters, porters, stouts, I.P.A.S and speciality beers. The first micro brewery that he dealt with in 1993 was the Cottage Brewery from Somerset.

"They have always supplied us with consistently good ales, delivered straight to our door. Almost 20 years on, they are still providing a great selection of award winning beers."

The Royal Oak offers a variety of beers from all over England, Scotland and Wales. Some of the many brewers we have experienced over the years and still continue to enjoy are:
