Does anyone have any information on where ‘The Oak’ was in Drybrook. Would it be linked with the Royal Oak?

Littledean Petty Sessions

Albert STEPHENS of Harry Hill, Drybrook collier, was summonded by Arthur James REED, Landlord of the Royal Oak, Drybrook for being quarrelsome etc. etc.

So the same Landlord as 1901 - appears it was known as The Oak and the Royal Oak.
