Community-owned pub – The Royal Oak, Collingham – set to reopen under the new management of plant-based The Allotment Kitchen and Diner also in Collingham.
A pub that has temporarily closed is set to reopen today (February 2) offering a twist on pub classics.
The Royal Oak in Collingham, a community-owned pub, will reopen under the new management of Gemma Whitelock, who owns The Allotment Kitchen and Diner also in Collingham.
The newly developed menu includes sustainable choices ranging from plant-based options to a few twists on the so-called pub classics.
The people in front of the business wanted to make the pub fully vegan, however, as it is not financially viable. The menu will include meat, fish, veggie and vegan options.
Some of the quirky names on the menu include The Highwayman Club and The Royal Oak Gatsby.
The pub's new tenancy agreement started on January 12, and besides a new menu, the interior space has also been under renovation.
A Facebook post on the pub's profile read: “Gemma and Mark have been busy, rustling up new recipes that focus on fresh local ingredients, new takes on old classics and providing options for a range of dietary requirements.
“We’re reopening our doors in just a few days to start our soft launch and we can’t wait to welcome you all back.”
