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. .
I have used the Royal Oak on many occasions and have never been let down by the quality of the food or service. I can highly recommend it.
The food is always extremely delicious and the waiting staff can’t do enough for you.
Excellent roast dinner
Amazing meal, would definitely return. The duck spring roll was especially delicious !!!
Very friendly staff, excellent selection of beers, food was simply amazing. It was our first time here and we have already made 2 more bookings to return. Particularly impressed with the fresh bread made in-house.
Great food and great service.
Nice food and lovely service.
Excellent food and a lovely place
Staff efficient and friendly Good all-round experience
It was a quieter night than usual, being in the post-Christmas and New Year lull, but that meant staff weren't too busy for a little chat. Everything was of the usual high standard.
Lovely meal, great staff and nice surroundings
A very pleasant relaxed and friendly restaurant serving excellent food. If In the area we we’ll definitely visit The Royal Oak again.
Really lovely Sunday lunch, visited with two friends from Lincolnshire and they absolutely loved it, it was their first visit and we will definitely be coming for lunch again soon.
An enjoyable family meal which was enjoyed by everyone. We will be returning.
3 of us agreed that our Venison Burgers were a little dry, otherwise excellent
Good balance of looking after our needs and leaving us alone when not needed. Good food. Happy with it all, thank you.
Wonderful food and exceptional service. Always book here when visiting Loughborough.
Previous time I had been here the food was outstanding . This time was still good but my chicken Ballantine was a tad dry. On New Year’s Eve I woukd have Expected it to be a bit jollier but it was very flat
The pigeon was one of the finest meals I’ve had in a pub for years. Beautifully cooked. All our party enjoyed their experiences and it was a wonderful start to New Years Eve.
Fantastic Christmas dinner
Quality seasonal food cooked to perfection. Creme brulee was the best we've ever had anywhere! Good atmosphere even with a larger group booking a table it wasn't distracting.
Fabulous food once again from the 2019 Seasonal Menu. Pre-selection of food is a good idea, but I feel it’s slightly over the top to email & ask how a steak choice wants be cooked. Makes it hard work for the person organising the booking. Please note, that if you have booked a table to 7:30 - that is exactly when your food will arrive. Take care when ordering wine, as it can be very expensive. Staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant can be very noisy, due to the low ceiling, unless you’re with a big noisy group, the bar area is better. I’ve sampled 2 seasonal evening meals plus a lunch in the last month, as per my opening comment, the food is hard to beat !
Fantastic food and fabulous service as always. One of our favourite places to eat.
Excellent Sunday lunch
Met up with family as Royal Oak halfway meeting point. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Great menu and delicious food. Would definitely recommend.
