Royal Oak

History has it that the Royal Oak has been haunted since the mid 18th Century following the tragic death of a mother and child on the premises. In the 1950’s and 1960’s the Royal Oak was an old-fashioned country pub and had a skittle alley, quoits were played and the Cheltenham Cycling Club adopted the pub as their HQ, it doubled in size in the early 1970’s when the adjoining barbers shop was purchased. Today this attractive traditional, friendly old English pub has a thatched roof and hanging baskets to the front with a spacious rear Garden area.
