The Origins of this building can be traced back to the 19th century; the first record being a public house in 1889 when it was christened the Junction Arms. During the Second World War this building was damaged by the bombing, however only suffered minor damage to the exterior structure. In 1964 the Junction Arms became the Drum and Monkey, the tenant instigated the story behind this unusual name, at the time owning an ornament depicting a drum and monkey (odd!!).
So the years have gone by, the Oak and Pastor has passed through many hands, had many different personalities, seen many things, so many different stories could be told – if only this dear old pub could talk.
