The Royal Oak is in the centre of East Bridgford an attractive village on a hill above the Trent within spacious Georgian houses and brick cottages. East Bridgford was once an important centre for brick-making using the local clay. Many houses are gable ended to the road in a medieval manner. It is best approached up the leafy lane (Trent lane, an ancient holloway or sunken road) from Gunthorpe.
At the bottom of this hill can be found the site of a 11th century Motte and Bailey castle. The village church of St. Peters stands on one of the oldest Christian sites in Nottinghamshire and some parts of the church dating back into the 13th century.
