The Zookeeper’s Son

In 1912 J.J. Boyd’s zoo opened in Royal Oak with┬álions and all manner of exotic creatures. Before long one of the lions decided to escape – only to be recaptured by Mr Boyd’s son.
This great local bar in the heart of Royal Oak was called The Zookeeper’s Son, as a reminder that sometimes you need to be let loose….
