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 tasty food. Great place to eat. Service excellent.
The Royal Oak always provide lovely food, locally sourced, with very attentive service. They are top of our list for eating out locally!
A liltle hidden gem! Fabulous food.
If there's anywhere better in the area for the balance between formal and informal top quality unpretentious dining, I haven't found it yet. Introduced a newbie to pie night: resounding success!
food amazing and value for money drink a bit overpriced
Fantastic food and a brilliant service. 100% the best food in the area.
i over eat on the nibbles, bread and olives couldn't finish mains. i would make the nibbles smaller; less bread for pigs like me - eyes bigger than ..... etc. but will be back and will know better next time
Best Sunday lunch I have had for a long time
Best Sunday dinner ever.
What a fabulous place, the food is amazing value for money, can’t wait to go back
Friendly attentive staff & delicious food
Steak expensive and no choice of cut
Very enjoyable experience. Good food selection including some tasty vegetarian dishes Nice country pub athmosphere with great food
Lovely meal lovely service
We've never had a meal that's lacking anything here. And I have a dairy allergy, so eating out can be a real chore... Not to mention, a total bore! It certainly isn't at the Royal Oak though. There's lots on the menu that can be always changed or tweaked to suit the customer's needs... It's a total breath of fresh air! Many other restaurants should take a lesson, or few, from the wonderful place that is The Royal Oak.
A lovely evening very helpful staff 😊
We tend to choose The Royal Oak for special occasions, and none are more special than Mother's Day. The restaurant retains a local, 'classic' neighbourhood pub feel, but with a top-notch kitchen that turns out HUGE portions of incredibly good tasting food. The fixed menu had lots of great options - virtually every one gluten free adaptable which is important as our guest of honour is celiac. It was a lovely afternoon and we were absolutely stuffed! Would highly recommend!!
Always a pleasure to come to the Royal Oak. Good food and very friendly staff
Excellent service, excellent food and very accommodating to the children as always, Thank you
Fab in every way
