There's not too many of these pubs around any more. On a small street just off Lambeth Walk (Oi!) and overlooking an attractive park is the Royal Oak. The sign outside declared it to be a Younger's pub, but we weren't too sure if this was up-to-date. Either way, the whole setting is pleasant enough to make it seem somewhere far more suburban than SE11, but this is very much a south London local's boozer. A group of older fellas were playing darts and others were chatting with the landlady; they all knew each other but the vibe was still welcoming. Lots of features to mention - jukebox, pool table, a back garden... but also an unfortunate and overpowering small of cheap disinfectant. The one missing feature, unsurprisingly, was a good drinks selection; averagely kept lager is the mainstay here. Sitting outside though, it's charming enough to elevate itself to a somewhat generous two pint rating.
