    You may have heard in recent weeks that James May has bought half a pub. Although it's still having finishing touches added to it ahead of its opening next week, James kindly offered to give us a sneak peek at what's to come.

    Sorry in advance for the audio, James was wearing a very scratchy jumper.

    • I think 'Privy Chambers' would suit the ambience of The Royal Oak....I'm really looking forward to going........and not just to the toilet either!

    • Very glad that the pub will reopen, as it's been our local since 1980: but it hasn't been closed for over a year: it closed one day after lockdown in March. I agree: what could be worse than farmers at the bar talking about grain prices? Er...oh, never mind. Great that Jonny S is staying on: v sad about some others who aren't. Nonetheless, good luck to James and the team! Toilets or WCs would be ok, I guess.
