Following the recent announcement of its re-development project which has been underway since the beginning of January, which promises to seamlessly blend tradition with a modern touch, the Royal Oak, Eccleshall is set to welcome back patrons starting from its reopening weekend on Thursday March 28th, 2024.

Situated proudly on Eccleshall High Street, just a stone’s throw away from Joule’s Brewery Flagship Tap in Market Drayton, the Royal Oak is poised to become the go-to spot for pub enthusiasts in Eccleshall.

With enhancements across the board, including operational improvements and an extension of the bar to showcase our extensive Joule’s draught offer. We have created cosy corners, ideal for setting in with a pint. Our outdoor space has also received a transformation, boasting a new pergola in the beer courtyard and refurbishments, complete with draught exclusion, to the coach house. All perfect for live music events.

In addition to the enhancements downstairs, we’ve also spared no effort in upgrading our meeting room and function room upstairs, perfect for any occasion – whether you’re hosting a business gathering or a social event, our revamped meeting room offers a comfortable and professional space for all occasions.

The function room upstairs includes upgrades to the bar and functionality, we have elevated the bar to create the perfect offer for cold beers on tap, as well as added secondary glazing to make it thermo-efficient.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the reopening of the Royal Oak Eccleshall,” said Georgia Charlton-Briggs, Brand Manager at Joule’s Brewery “This project has been an exciting next step for the Royal Oak, and we can’t wait to share the final results with our patrons and newcomers alike.
