Worth mentioning and I am sorry the noise is becoming an aggravation, with change comes issues, but if Stirchley is to change these things are going to have to happen and I feel The Oak is going through a process which is making the pub a place to visit, relax, be entertained and primarily enjoyed. The pub was becoming a 'classic old boozer' but sadly was not being upgraded, I am actually pleased of the actions that have been taken by the new landlord to make it a pub which I hope will become a regular haunt for the people of Stirchley for a long time in the future. We have the Oak or The Shoes, a pub that failed to be modernised properly and is now fairly rough as far as I am aware and have witnessed.
The music events etc outside and film nights, are they really loud or just of a certain volume ? Most pubs have a beer garden and when full can have quite a volume also from conversation and the like.
