Lebanese food in Old Town!   Leave a comment

Royal Oak Old Town Lebanese

Walking to the butcher I spotted the above markings on the Royal Oak.  Great news as we could use a bit of middle eastern food in town (and I dearly love Lebanese).

Speaking of news, the advertising ‘help’ at the Swindon Advertiser seem to have let down the side when they allowed the proprietors to publish their advert.  There’s no phone number or address, and the argument that there is only one Royal Oak in Swindon is belied by a Google search (every Royal Oak within 20 miles is listed as the Royal Oak, {insert village}, Swindon).  While Royal Oak is the 2nd most common pub name (after Red Lion). that this particular Royal Oak, over the last couple of years,  has only been open when a gig was booked and that it has absolutely fuck-all web presence is probably considered irrelevant to this argument.

For good measure (or perhaps I should say “For Good Mezza”), here’s the advert:


Royal Oak somewhere Lebanese

No street address, no phone number, no neighbourhood mentioned, no web link…smart advert!


Update 25 April 2014…new improved advert one week after the first one:
