Royal Oak Bank Street
The "original" Oak opened in April 1980 and expanded twice in the intervening years. It probably has the most eclectic clientele of any pub in the city and is considered by many to be the true English pub in Ottawa. It is also one of the largest purveyors of draught beers in Eastern Ontario! Consistently voted "Best Pub" by numerous Ottawa publications, it has three separate rooms with its own character, with the bar area sporting a new intimate fireplace.
