8 reviews of The Seven Oaks in English
Good friendly community pub. close to Chinatown. Operates a membership after 11.00 p.m. but stays open until 7.00 a.m. catering for night workers. Unusual white glazed faience block exterior with wrought iron tree on the Nicholas Street facade. Early 20th C pub that has improved over the last few years. Four real ales of adequate quality: Timothy Taylor, Landlord; Hobgoblin; Cumberland, & Black Sheep but beers change. Has a room upstairs for functions and overflow at busy weekends. Toilets in the basement. Serves excellent pies through the day.
I agree with what has been written so far about this pub: it is an old style boozer where people go to have a drink with friends, watch football on the tellies and maybe have some pie and chips.
It’s on three levels - the gents are accessed downstairs by way of a narrow, almost spiralling staircase; let’s say that in terms of modernisation and cleanliness it takes me back a few years (you want character, don’t you?). The main pub is on the ground floor and the upstairs room also has a bar, is used for meals and has a couple more big screens.
If you’re a fan of football then there will almost always be a match on. The staff are great and I’ve seen them accommodate an auld fella who wanted to watch the cricket by getting it up on one telly for him alone. Sweet.
The location of this pub is great. It’s right in the middle of Chinatown so after downing a couple of drinks here, it’s ideal to go off for a meal in the many restaurants dotted nearby.
It’s got a good range of beers and wines available and the staff are very friendly, the pub seemed clean and so did the toilets
It’s an old style sort of pub, nothing trendy here but that is part of it’s charm, makes a nice change from the trendy bars that are everywhere these days!
Almost a hidden from the rest of the city by the arms of Chinatown, the Sevon Oaks is possibly the only such boozer in the area. Compact and wedged onto the end Chinatown just before it turns into Moseley Street (although I’ve love to see Chinatown extended and grow) this was a firm favourite 'when I worked in the area’ (seems to be a catch phrase of mine at the moment…look, I’ve had plenty of jobs right!). Old school charm permeates the interior, with wonderful staff as icing on the cake.
Sky TV included (like most places you’ll find these days) and a smallish menu (the pies are to be recommended) makes this a fine establishment I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
A smashing little gem of a pub slam bang in the middle of Chinatown. Staff are lovely, friendly and attentive. The food is excellent value for money during the week (try Lesley’s giant Yorkshires or the pie), atmosphere conversational and pleasant. Great for the game as well, with a real effort noted to try and put unusual treats on like Serie A or the golf. Well worth a bob into.
One of the few great old school pubs still left in the city centre. They have a great selection of beers on bottle and draught and a fantastic stop off before eating in China Town (and also a nice stop off after eating!). The pub food is great and staff will really will have good laugh with. Fridays can be busy but there is real banter - oh and they show all the football, cricket, rugby and thankfully its NOT one of those faceless bars full of people pretending to be someone.
This pub is just okay. Bear in mind, however, that I’ve only been here when United were playing and each time the sound was absolutely deafening and there were tons of hooligans. It was impossible to find a place to sit down anywhere. The bartenders are real nice though and were usually cute younger girls. It’s location in the city centre makes it a good after work place for folks down that way. I probably wouldn’t go there if it weren’t for my friends who like the place alot.
