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.

Why not offer the full a la Carte from 5:30 pm? We like to eat early but we’re disappointed that the full menu was not available.

We booked as a table of 6 for 6.15pm to celebrate a significant anniversary. We would have liked to have chosen from the a la carte menu but understood when we booked that this was not available until 6.30pm hence only 4 stars for food and drink as we found the early bird menu a bit limited for choice. Having said that, what we did order was cooked well and very tasty (especially the belly pork). Food was brought to the table at just the right intervals and we were not rushed to finish. Had coffee and drinks in the bar afterwards. All in all a lovely meal in a nice intimate atmosphere with members of our close family which was just what we wanted. Highly recommended.

We have eaten at the Royal Oak many times over a period of several years, whilst our son is at Loughborough University. Each time the service is excellent and so is the food, even with a number in our party having a variety of food allergy requirements.

The roast to share was fantastic however the fish was very, very greasy and unappetising. It’s a shame as it has been recommended. Service however was good

We love Sunday lunch at the Royal Oak! We dint out every Sunday and we have done for many years and in that time have dined in hundreds of pubs and restaurants. Currently The Royal Oak is our favourite place for Sunday Lunch. The flavours and quality of the food are just superb! As are the portion sizes, people and prices. Absolutely love it! It never disappoints.

My husband and I really value good food. The Royal Oak, to my mind, is one of a handful of restaurants in Leicestershire which deliver a faultless dining experience. (Others include The Grey Lady at Newtown Linford and The Berkeley Arms at Wymondham). Thanks for such a wonderful, well put together meal. We will be coming to see you again soon.

This was our first visit to The Royal Oak but we will certainly return. We were very impressed with the booking experience and the welcome we received, as well as the standard of our meal. We visited on the recommendation of friends and will have no hesitation in recommending The Royal Oak to others. Many thanks.
