Royal Oak, The

44 Tabard Street
United Kingdom

This Victorian corner pub has been lovingly restored to an authentic city beer house.

Located near to the site of Geoffrey Chaucer's Tabard Inn, The Royal Oak seems to mirror, in a contemporary sense, the local ale drinking traditions that are recorded in his Canterbury Tales.

A haven for Harvey's drinkers in London, real ale enthusiasts certainly regard this house as special, and Cask Mild is a firm favourite.

Voted one of the UK's Top 10 pubs in a Daily Telegraph article on 10th April 2010 entitled: "Where to drink great beer".

Covid-19 Notice

As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic we are now operating with a scaled back team Harvey's.
We are still brewing, and reproducing and preserving our unique yeast strain - so you may find the familiar smell of hops and malt drifting across the town. These brews are currently being put into bottle, mini-kegs, and polypins.

Trade Orders

Please contact 01273 480209 and we are happy to take your order - due to the current status of operations we are only able to offer a pre-payment service.

Shop Online

Head to our online shop to order a limited range of our beers. Stock is replenished each day (mon- fri).
Select Click and Collect, or UK mainland delivery is available.

The Brewery Shop is closed until further notice.

If you have any questions about orders please email, and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can.

Some Harvey's pubs are still operating as community hubs, and we recommend that you contact any individual pubs directly to see if they are continuing their initiatives.

Please keep safe, and continue to do your part by following Government guidelines.

Our sincerest thanks to all of you once again for your support.
