The pub is listed in George Hill, the Common, in the 1871, 1891 & 1901 censuses and the Common in 1881. It seems still to be standing, but its position behind other buildings and high fences precludes getting a photograph.

Thomas Pooley, of Stanton, applied for a full license for a beerhouse kept by him called the Royal Oak. After listening to the pros and cons the Justices refused the license, considering there was no occasion for another house in Stanton.Bury & Norwich Post, August 24th 1869** (when Thomas Pooley was the landlord)
