About The Royal Oak
The Royal Oak is situated in the picturesque village of Long Whatton, Leicestershire with close proximity to East Midlands Airport, Donington Race Circuit and the university town of Loughborough.
The gastro pub offers good quality home produced food with a strong emphasis on using fresh, locally sourced produce. The pub serves great real ales including St. Austell Tribute, Bass, Charnwood's Vixen and regular guest beers.
A carefully selected wine list and a range of other draft beers make it a great venue for meeting friends for a drink.
The guest bedrooms benefit from being in a separate building and have been recently furnished to a very high standard. Each of the spacious en-suite bedrooms are comfortable and stylish with all the facilities a discerning traveller would expect for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

The perfect place for business travellers or leisure seekers. .
Excellent food and staff. Good atmoshere all round
Why not offer the full a la Carte from 5:30 pm? We like to eat early but we’re disappointed that the full menu was not available.
Excellent food at a real value for money along with friendly and efficient service made for an outstanding Christmas lunch.
Best lamb I’ve ever had!
The food was amazing. The service fantastic and it really was great value for money. We will be back ;)
As good as always , never had a bad meal yet . The bass was exeptionally good on Thursday , Shame it was my turn to drive
We booked as a table of 6 for 6.15pm to celebrate a significant anniversary. We would have liked to have chosen from the a la carte menu but understood when we booked that this was not available until 6.30pm hence only 4 stars for food and drink as we found the early bird menu a bit limited for choice. Having said that, what we did order was cooked well and very tasty (especially the belly pork). Food was brought to the table at just the right intervals and we were not rushed to finish. Had coffee and drinks in the bar afterwards. All in all a lovely meal in a nice intimate atmosphere with members of our close family which was just what we wanted. Highly recommended.
Very enjoyable meal great atmosphere
We have eaten at the Royal Oak many times over a period of several years, whilst our son is at Loughborough University. Each time the service is excellent and so is the food, even with a number in our party having a variety of food allergy requirements.
Great value night away with dinner, bed and breakfast. Different, interesting menu, with good quality food
Excellent meals as ever, friendly service and excellent food
Excellent meal and service was great, will be coming back again for the early doors menu which was great alue for money
Superb stay with incredible food. Engaging staff. Thank you. We would like to speak to you regarding arranging regular stays.
Warm welcome, excllent accommodation. Prompt service in pub, very flavoursome food. Will definitely return.
Despite being served the wrong meal, it was replaced, with apologies and a complimentary drink.
The roast to share was fantastic however the fish was very, very greasy and unappetising. It’s a shame as it has been recommended. Service however was good
We love Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak! We dint out every Sunday and we have done for many years and in that time have dined in hundreds of pubs and restaurants. Currently The Royal Oak is our favourite place for Sunday Lunch. The flavours and quality of the food are just superb! As are the portion sizes, people and prices. Absolutely love it! It never disappoints.
Never disappointed by the quality of the Sunday menu. Will definitely be visiting again.
Wonderful experience at The Royal Oak
Food was as excellent as ever and I can’t fault the service. Always friendly and helpful, always recommend The Royal Oak when someone is looking for a restaurant locally.
Excellent meal and service
My husband and I really value good food. The Royal Oak, to my mind, is one of a handful of restaurants in Leicestershire which deliver a faultless dining experience. (Others include The Grey Lady at Newtown Linford and The Berkeley Arms at Wymondham). Thanks for such a wonderful, well put together meal. We will be coming to see you again soon.
Lovely and comfortable, modern public house. Food Service and good food. Highly recommended to friends and colleagues , all have been impressed. Visit regularly.
Much more than pub grub, the food is beautifully presented, the menu is varied and the service is first class.
This was our first visit to The Royal Oak but we will certainly return. We were very impressed with the booking experience and the welcome we received, as well as the standard of our meal. We visited on the recommendation of friends and will have no hesitation in recommending The Royal Oak to others. Many thanks.
