Oak & pastor, Archway
The atmosphere at the Oak and Pastor is relaxed and incredibly welcoming. There are smiles all round - the punters look happy and well cared for - and there seems to be a small and very friendly regular crowd, as well as people dropping in for a couple of drinks.
The decor is marvelous - all red velvet curtains and nooks and crannies in which to get lost or have that intimate drink with an interesting stranger...
I love this pub and I shall go back again and again. I cannot reccommend it highly enough. Just brilliant!!!

In 1964 the Junction Arms became the Drum & Monkey, The tenant instigated the story behind this unusual name, at the time owning an ornament depicting a Drum & Monkey...
