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.

Very good, as usual
Service was well managed between the manager and young female waitress, food is clearly taken pride over when preparing, and tastes amazing, everything about our meal was top notch I was so impressed, as being a former team leader in the restaurant business I’m always so fussy but can’t knock my experience at The Royal Oak, great atmosphere will definitely be returning!
Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Menu was nice and varied and the food was absolutely delicious. Excellent value for money. Can’t wait to try another meal soon.
Excellent food and service are always guaranteed.
Great food, fantastic quick service thank you :)
Absolutely delicious food, lovely friendly staff. Have and will continue to recommend to others. Best set menu/early bird I have had 👌
We have had many meals at the Royal Oak and the food has always been of an excellent standard and the service always friendly. We often do the early bird menu and if there isn’t something we really fancy the chef/s will always do their best to try and accommodate any special requests. We always eat in the bar area though, which has a lovely atmosphere and a completely different feel to the restaurant - I would actually go as far as to say if the bar area isn’t available we don’t book! Can’t actually put my finger on why the restaurant doesn’t work for us, but it just doesn’t have a great ‘feel’ to it.
A very friendly atmosphere, all staff very attentive. Will certainly come back again. Food excellant.
Another fabulous Sunday lunch. Thanks to everyone involved.
A very enjoyable experience once again. Booked online this time and it was a very easy job with a reminder email arriving too. Food and service all fabulous. hope to be back soon. Many thanks
