8.274 The Royal Oak

Inn, formerly the Red Lion and the Royal Oaks; amalgamated 1891. C17, much
modified in C19 and C20. Coursed and squared limestone, stone slate roofs. A
long building set to curve in street; left, later half is eaves to street, but
right half has double coped gables, which are repeated on the far side.
Scattered fenestration; the left hall has a 4-pane sash, a 2-light casement and
a 4-pane fixed light; first floor has two 2-light chamfer-mullion casements, one
with stopped hood; between these a single light, then to right a 2-light wood
casement. Off-centre, left, a pair of 3-panel doors; floor level is well below
present paving level. The double gabled unit, right, was formerly a separate
inn, has 2-light chamfer mullion casement above a loading door about 2 m above
the pavement, with plank door - this is assumed to have been formerly a window.
At eaves to left a stack, and two small stacks at ridge, right. The far side of
the building has a small paved courtyard adjacent to Loveday's Garden (q.v.) and
to left the double-gabled unit has 2 or 3-light stone mullioned casements.
