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.

Lovely food brilliant staff great atmosphere great place GO
Wonderful Sunday lunch. Quality ingredients with great service and atmosphere
The service was very quick and attentive without being intrusive. The food was cooked to perfection.
Always a five star experience at this wonderful place!
Awesome little date night.
A well run pub restaurant serving consistently good food. On this early evening visit the bar and restaurant were busy but the efficient staff were charming. The starters from the set menu were very good indeed and well above typical pub fare.
Will definitely be coming back! Food is delicious!
Excellent service & the food was a very high standard
Fantastic food & service as always. Great new menu on offer, loved the veggie options & the choc mousse desert was yummy!
Food was delicious and great service too
We go to The Royal Oak regularly and always have the best experience. The service is fantastic - the servers are friendly and make you feel welcome. The food is top quality.
Good food and good service
I was very pleased that the chef could cope with my dietary requirements. I would have given a higher score but the vegetables were burnt mainly the broc. I was asked if I wanted it replaced and was somewhat bemused as to why it was served if burnt in the first place. Overall not bad.
I really appreciate that the food is nice and the fact they make everything on site. We had a set lunch menu,3 course for a very reasonable price and a very good service. I would highly recommend this pub.
Great as always!
Always a great meal, excellent service and welcoming atmosphere at The Royal Oak.
I have stayed at the Royal Oak several times over the last year and I cannot fault them. Excellent.
Exceptional service, food and atmosphere every time we visit. It's a little pricey for some of the 'specials' on the menu of the day, however appreciate that the ingredients being used are high quality and the time and care taken for each dish reflects this price. We have already made several recommendations to friends...so lucky to have this 5 mins away from home!
Simply an enjoyable evening
Good lunchtime menu food well presented and very hot, very pleasant staff,would definitely call again when passing
Thank you very much for a perfect evening. We were celebrating the engagement of our daughter Kirsty and her partner James and all the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. The food was perfect. Beautifully cooked and presented and very good value for money. Between us we had most of the different main courses on the new Autumn menu and each of them were fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Royal Oak. Thanks once again.
The steak and Stilton pie was the best one I’ve ever had and the sticky toffee pudding was yummy. Made up for the hour we had to wait for it!
We planned our trip to the East of England to ensure we had an overnight stay here. We’d stayed here last time we did this trip and couldn’t wait for an excuse to stay again. A whole week would be fantastic but unfortunately we only had time for one night.
I really like this place :-)
