Closed and converted into a private house. This pub is therefore re-categorised as Permanently Closed.
The former description is shown below.
The Oak Tree is the least altered pub in Wrexham with three rooms and stables at the rear. The public bar still retains an old vestibule entrance and the bar counter and bar back probably date from the 1960s. The lounge on the left at the Oak Tree, Wrexham was formerly two small rooms and has fittings from the 1960s. The rear section has a 1950s brick fireplace and a hatch for service. On the rear right the games room housed a full sized snooker table until a few years ago but still retains some original fixed seating and modern high backed settles.
The nearby Bowling Green has the most surviving etched windows in a Wrexham pub - note the 'Bottle & Jug Entrance' in stone above a blocked-up arch.
A rare survivor is the small thatched historic Horse & Jockey in the redeveloped town centre of Wrexham still retains a traditional layout but a couple of fires in the 70/80s unfortunately destroyed any old fittings.
