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.

The perfect place for business travellers or leisure seekers. .
Lovely touch when we were given a treat to recognise our special evening.
We have dined here many times. Our only criticisms have been the need to change the menu a little more often and on one occasion the coffe was a bit week.
Very relaxed evening with friends. Everything was excellent.
All round excellent! We don't know many local restaurants but a friend recommended the Royal Oak. We booked for a lunchtime sitting. Two of our party are celiac so a gluten-free menu was important and yours was one one of the most comprehensive they've seen. Food and service were excellent, the waitresses very friendly and attentive and the price very reasonable. We'll definitely visit again.
Only negative I found was the thickness of the steak I ordered. Very nice, juicy, cooked to perfection but I thought it was a little too thin. Prefers more chunkier steak. Other than that, the meals, starter to pudding were lovely.
We always enjoy the fabulous food and service at The Royal Oak
Lovely pub with friendly staff, food always of a good standard, I will be returning!
Excellent food and drink. One of the house beers is Vixen, which is brewed locally by the Charnwood Brewey, it’s worth visiting The Royal Oak just to sample this, and I often do.
We all had a marvellous evening. Value for money great service by your charming waitresses. A great menu which was a refreshing change. We will be back!!!
The food was exceptional. We have been a number of times, but for Sunday Lunch this was as good as anything we have had in Leicestershire. Service was very good indeed, with a smile!
Party of 16 for two nights b&b for my 60th birthday. Rooms were all of a high standard, lovely bathrooms, spotless and modern. The staff were excellent without exception, helpful and polite. All our (many) requests made in advance were met, everyone very professional and accommodating. Finished off with an amazing Sunday lunch for all. The whole weekend was an absolute joy - thank you all so much!
The service was excellent and the menu choice was very comprehensive. The food was exceptional. Will be back to try more.
Excellent, as ever. And we'll be back. Again. Of course!
Good quality food, attentive personable service would definitely eat here again - nice feel to the place

Top Sunday roast. Will definitely be back again.

Always excellent food and service.
Excellent meal and service. Thank you team for looking after us ladies.
Excellent meal although a little rushed as the table was required. Bedroom lovely & comfortable but there was an intermittent humming from behind the wall (Room 3) which gave me a restless night.
Lovely hotel/pub/restaurant. Room was immaculate and had all tge facilities we needed. Would stay again in a heartbeat and would recommend to family and friends if they ever stay in the area.
Fantastic place with relaxing atmosphere and high quality food.
We had a lovely time here. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent.
