The Royal Oak is a typical market pub which has featured in many TV shows and films, from "Good Night Sweetheart", "LS&2SB" and "The Kray's" to children's programme "Blue Peter." Yet it's the down-to-earth atmosphere and excellent food that keeps pulling in the punters. Seated at wooden tables or along the bar, guests choose from a daily changing selection of modern dishes with an East End gastro pub twist, such as the Grilled Morcilla with Black Beans & Swiss Chard and Smoked Eel, Baked Beetroot, Watercress & Horseradish Salad. Alternatively, you can have a more private meal in the Dining Room. If you're visiting the Columbia Road Flower Market, this is a perfect stop for home-made cakes in the café, and the pub's Sunday Roast is particularly well-renowned.
