MA OROAK (scene setting for my next stranger shot)

This image is setting the scene for my next stranger shot

The stranger image was shot in the doorway on the left hand side of the building.

This is the MA OROAK a pub in Arnold, Nottingham. It's Actually the MAJOR OAK, but the J has fallen off and the O has slipped !

It's a "housing estate" pub. I've never been in the pub, in fact I cannot remember the last time I went in a pub. We visit restaurants, but rarely go to a pub.

Anyway, I've posted it as it will help tell my next stranger story
The story about the sign is funny and in fact the resulting sign has its own charm!

Oh, I thought this might be gaelic for something! Amazing what one letter can do! Great setting.

I thought there was something wrong with the name. Looks a lovely building. I can't wait to see the next shot

The leaning pub of MA OROAK?

Love the name with its missing letters!

It looks very modern and could almost be a house

I thought the sign was in another language at first…sort of Māori!

Oh, I saw that sign and immediately thought 'Fawlty Towers' (despite being one of the few people who didn't like the show)!
I'm now intrigued and looking forward to your next stranger image.

Great image and story.
I love pubs, especially those in country rural areas. We always stop at the town pub for a beer when out on drives.
