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.

Staff very efficient despite it being busy
Always a brilliant experience. Delicious food, great staff & friendly atmosphere.
Booked an early evening meal. Excellent food, as usual, and the service went the extra mile by providing different vegetables to those advertised on the menu with my particular meal. Couldn't fault it.
Visiting The Royal Oak to enjoy good food and drink is fast becoming habit forming. If only it was available on prescription.
Great food, great service what more need one say? Well done.
The food was very nice and we will be back again soon
Very welcoming pub, lovely meal and good service, would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent, staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will defiantly return.
Had a lovely visit with my elderly parents, who were trialling with a view to making a booking for a family lunch to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. Glad to say that they were impressed enough to make the booking! Rather surprised that Vegan dishes don't form part of the 'standard' menu,they are only available on request, with advance notice. Anyone calling in 'on spec' requiring a Vegan option would be disappointed. This won't be an issue for the three vegans in our family, as we will be ordering in advance for the family lunch. It just struck me as unusual - everything else was lovely.
Another excellent lunchtime treat where consistency is the byword - consistently good!
Pie night is fantastic - tasty food, hearty portions and great prices. The staff were friendly and the food came nice and swiftly. The acoustics in the dining room made it a bit hard to hear conversation on our table but it was busy and bustling in there which has got to be a good thing!
Everything about the afternoon was superb once again delicious food & lovely atmosphere already looking forward to our next visit
Great service, attentive waitress. Everything was delicious, and cooked to perfection.The Royal Oak is consistently excellent.
Excellent as always!
Always excellent, never disappoints. The variety of menus allows you to have something different each visit. So good you need to book a table in good time
The most consistent restaurant in the area.
Great coordination with the pre-orders and lovely service as always.
Very busy, but service very prompt
The Royal Oak is always our first choice for a family meal/ special occasion. Both vegetarian and meat meals are consistently good and to a high standard in our experience. The staff always welcoming and accommodating. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you Royal Oak.
Wonderful food, presented beautifully together with a great atmosphere and friendly service ..... thank you
Everything about your staff, service, the welcome and bye, food, location, car park etc... is top class . From the moment we pulled up and entered it was great with a very warm greeting will definitely be returning.
Great food at reasonable prices
Lovely friendly pub, fantastic large menu with huge choice. Our friends loved it too. Will definitely be visiting again very soon
Meet for a girlie night out at the Royal Oak every couple of months. We have thought about going to other local restaurants but always end up at the Royal Oak. Why go anywhere else! Food great and we're always made to feel special. Good night out. Thank you.
