Description

From 1969, poet and novelist, John Lucas, drank regularly the Royal Oak, a back-street pub in Beeston, Nottingham. The pub played host to a variety of local citizens, kept in good order by a succession of landlords, all notable individuals. During the decades since 1969 the town changed, as did drinking habits and gradually the pub fell out of favour and is now closed and awaiting demolition. This tells the story of the pub’s decline and fall, a moment in English social history. 164pp
