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.

Another excellent meal here. Fantastic food and service
Excellent, as ever. The Royal Oak remains a firm favourite.
Lovely place to stay, great food and quality accomodation
Absolutely faultless....thank you.
We stayed at the Royal Oak for 2 nights (Sunday & Monday) as attended an event at Donnington circuit – which was only 5 miles away. This was a great find…everything was brilliant. The level of service was AMAZING – I called to discuss the room and if I could park a motorcycle safely outside my room (which we did easily!). As we arrived on Sunday and it was “Pie Night” and I am coeliac and diary intolerant… so they made me my own pie! They even put Almond milk in my fridge in the room!!! The Breakfast and A La Carte menu – all had gluten free options – and all the food was delicious and well presented. The courtyard room was lovely and spacious, clean and comfortable, with a coffee machine and fridge. Thank you to all the staff for making it a lovely couple of days. I could not recommend this place enough – although wishing I could keep it a secret for my next visit.
This was the first time we have had an evening meal at The Royal Oak and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Both the food and service was excellent. The vegetarian gravy was exceptional. Would love mine to taste like that. Would recommend to friends and family. Thanks
Absolutely lovely pub , great food , and excellent staff made us feel very welcome Added a birthday candle to our pie 🥧 for my friends birthday, such a lovely touch Thanks for nice pie night 👍🏼
Always great food and amazing service. Staff make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Our favourite place to be!!
Outstanding standard of service and food. The most delicious roast dinner for miles and miles around.
Always a great service & atmosphere. Food never disappoints. Staff always seem to have a smile on their faces! Usually a Saturday night treat!
Great place will come again
Nice pub ; good food but not value for money Left standing at Bar as they mixed up our booking Asked for a £3.80 brandy on their list - didn’t have it so suggested a £11 alternative !!!!
Really enjoyed my visit to the Royal Oak, had a superb evening meal and there was a great selection of ales available. Room was comfortable and had a great nights sleep.
Excellent stay for a wedding party , staff moved tables etc for the group breakfast the following morning
A lot of interesting choice. Everything was well presented and delicious, and served with a smile. The Royal Oak remains our Number 1 choice for a meal out within a half-hour's drive of home.
Fantastic tapas night. Particularly the squid and the churros. Everything was beautifully cooked
Excellent staff, food and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
The service and food is amazing, I had a party of 50 and the food came out floorlessly. Thank you
Very friendly staff and great food. Always book at this pub for birthdays and special occasions. Thanks to all the staff
