Architectural firm Hyndman and Bates invited tenders for the erection of the Royal Oak Hotel for Samuel Gillott Esq in the Building Engineering and Mining Journal 26 June 1897, supplement, p. 2; a builder's tender was accepted in the same journal 10 July 1897, p. 3.
Today, ground floor windows and doors have been altered and the brickwork has been painted, but the upper storey reveals the simple decorative treatment of their building, which replaced the earlier hotel.
