Overview

Local pub in the middle of Headingley showing all the sports action from Sky and BT, with an iconic beer garden and a big screen. Come enjoy a delicious meal from our diverse menu along with a cold refreshing drink from one of our drinks package deals. Or why not try one of our local brewery real ales with alternating guest ales. Celebrating? Our versatile function room is perfect for any occasion. Open every morning for breakfast until the late evening, we look forward to seeing you here at The Original Oak.

We last visited here in February because it sold breakfast. It wasn't our favourite place as it was run down. It has been renovated since then and it has been money well spent. Lovely inside and it has a great beer garden. Extensive choice of...More

The Original Oak is a fairly normal pub on the inside with little discernible features, that said this place is great for a summers day to its huge beer garden. Its one of the few pubs that can house a large group outside.

This is a student pub. I only go when the students are on Holliday/break. It is nice in the summer when you can sit out in the large garden,

Typical expected menu but the burger was really nice. Great offers and a good selection of beers. In the heart of Headingley and therefore likely to have students but the atmosphere was actually very good and we really enjoyed our meal and drinks.

This place is fab on a sunny afternoon for a chill out in the beer garden - it is absolutely massive, with large screens for sports and a BBQ on busy days. The food is typical chain pub grub, and there's usually offers on beer...More
