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.
