Here at the Royal Oak we play host to a huge variety of events, both regular and one-off. We mark most public holidays and special days in some way, have regular beer festivals and parties, act as the hub and staring point for country walks, and put on live music events. We’re also the venue of choice for lots of clubs and societies who meet up once a month here at the Royal Oak.

For one-off special occasions we have a variety of sizes of rooms for hire, including our large function room – for birthday or anniversary parties, discos film nights, skittles nights, charity fundraisers…and lots more!

COVID-19 Update


The pub is temporarily closed in line with government requirements, given the escalation of the coronavirus crisis.


Thank you for your support, and we want to wish you good health in the weeks and months to come. We look forward to when we can open our doors and welcome you back.


Thank you, from all at the Royal Oak

Heading east out of Derby on the A52 (Brian Clough Way) take the Ockbrook exit after around 4 miles (just after the Shell garage). At the end of the slip road turn left into Victoria Avenue. Follow this past the Queens Head pub and turn left at the T-junction. The Royal Oak is in a couple of hundred yards on the left.
