Large cola ordered in neighbourhood pub (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

local

Here is my best explanation:

'neighbourhood pub' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'large cola ordered' is the subsidiary indication.

'large' becomes 'l'.

'ordered' indicates anagramming the letters.

'cola' is an anagram of 'ocal'.

'l'+'ocal'='local'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for local that I've seen before include "Village inn", "Pub, maybe", "Confined to a limited area", "Resident", "Neighbourhood pub or resident", "Your friendly neighbourhood pub", "Anaesthetic that numbs one area of the body", "Pub - not far away", "Nieghbourhood pub or its customer" and "In the neighbourhood".)
