You may have heard in recent weeks that James May has bought half a pub. Although it's still having finishing touches added to it ahead of its opening next week, James kindly offered to give us a sneak peek at what's to come.
Sorry in advance for the audio, James was wearing a very scratchy jumper.

  • In America, all you'd have to do is emblazon the front with "James May's Royal Oak" and there would be a line around the block, similar to a Chick-Fil-A opening. Just a suggestion. Also, aren't they called W. C.s anymore?

  • Never a bad time to own a pub. Leasing is another matter though. He'll have no ties to a brewer; probably got a great price as it was a distressed asset. Loads of car enthusiasts will go out of their way to go there once they can. I bet he turns a profit in a year or two...None of us could though...Just a shame all the personality is on the outside of the building...
