The Royal Oak.

Pop in for a post flower market tipple at my busy local and watch the hours fly.
The Royal Oak
73 Columbia Road
Situated amongst the cockney flower hawkers and street style Bloggers of Columbia Road, the Royal Oak is a great spot to park up with friends. This popular watering hole fills up quick but if you manage to get a table you’ll be delighted by the food, friendly staff and colourful bouquets that filter in throughout the day.
The surrounds may also look slightly familiar, as the pub had a small part as “Samoan Joe’s” in Guy Ritchie’s British Gangster classic, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
