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 "Pub, maybe", "Convenient pub", "Nearest pub", "Regional; a pub", "Of the particular neighbourhood", "One's nearest pub", "Belonging to a particular place", "Purchase", "Close to home - public house" and "confined".)
