There will be live music, loads of local ciders, a huge BBQ, face painting, a magician and more!
The joys of running a business on Gloucester Road
Back when The Royal Oak first opened its doors, the only other venue close by which gave people a relaxed place to eat, drink and socialise was the Tinto Lounge.
The landscape today is very different – there has been a huge surge in the café culture, with the choice of venues constantly changing and expanding. Businesses need to thrive on the ever-changing competition as it keeps everyone on their toes. The pub has always tried to keep their food and drink offering in-line with changing tastes and trends.
Gloucester Road is now such an incredibly diverse destination for people going out, anyone living in the area has everything they could want and so much more right on their doorstep.
Gloucester Road is somewhat like a living, breathing entity in itself. The people – diverse, eccentric and never dull, the ever-changing shops and cafés that pop up and then disappear, but most importantly the sense of community that seems to beat through the streets. People are what make a place special; not posh shops and fancy restaurants. This is what draws people to the area and has helped to create the pub’s welcoming atmosphere. As owners, Neil and Olivia, feel very lucky to have been involved in helping to make the top end of Gloucester road as vibrant and ‘happening’ as the Arches end.
As always, there are many highs and lows in business – they have seen some great successes over the years, with their summer Pork and Cider festival not to be missed, along with some very memorable moments – having a garden full of school kids singing ‘we will rock you’ at the top of their voices certainly stands out!
