The Royal Oak is a picturesque detached pub situated in the village of Miles Green in Staffordshire just five miles from the city of Stoke on Trent. It benefits from being the only pub in the village and is well supported by the densely populated surrounding areas. The village of Miles Green is located between the villages of Audley and Halmerend.

Pub Layout

The pub is good condition throughout and it’s well balanced with electric loose furniture and sofas. There is both wooden and carpeted areas throughout. There are three distinctive areas to the pub; the main bar has a relaxed feel and is balanced with loose and fixed seating hosting a darts board and pool table. The snug area is a great overflow for those busy nights and has a similar style décor to the main bar. The conservatory to the rear of the pub is a welcomed addition with relaxed seating from sofas to loose tables. This area opens up onto the fantastic garden, which is a real sun trap in the warmer months. There is huge potential to use this area for community fetes and events. To the front of the pub is parking for around 8 cars although many locals usually walk to the pub.


The Royal Oak is very much community focused; it is well supported all year round with regular community events, live music and quizzes. There is both a darts board and pool table which would lend is self to starting up sports teams. At present there is no sky sports however the new licensee may wish to introduce this. There is no food at present however a small back bar food offer such as pies and pizzas could easily be introduced.
