About the Pub

Two-room former Boddington's house, each room having its own entrance and character. The left side is the lounge, comfortably decorated with images of old Manchester. The right-hand side is the vault with plenty of photos celebrating the successes of both the city's football teams; equally comfortable with much bric-a-brac on the beams and wood panelling. This room was once part of the adjacent cottage, this was bought by Boddington’s in the late 70s to enlarge and enhance the premises. Outside is a beer yard, which may be enlarged in the future. Meanwhile the interior is scheduled for a minor refurbishment too. Televised sports are a big draw for the pub, and during the week most days have some form of entertainment laid on: Mon - ladies darts; Tue/Thu - mens darts; Wed - open-mic night (very popular); Fri - an artist; Sat - karaoke; Sun - singalong with club singers. The pub operates an over-21 policy, which suits the regulars just fine. Re-opened in June 2013 (following a period of open-and-close ping-pong), the pub is now free of tie from former owners, Punch. In the same ownership as the Strawberry Duck in nearby Clayton, the Oak is run by experienced couple Les Park and Lynn Crossthwaite who previous to this ran the Lord Nelson, Gorton for nine years. Guest beers have included ales from Lancaster Brewery and others. Future plans may see a third handpump added if cask sales warrant it.
