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.

We had a very enjoyable lunch with you. Service & food was very good.
First time visiting- enjoyed the meal and it's in a nice setting.
Very enjoyable meal in very safe surroundings
Lovely food and friendly service in the new outside area. Can’t wait for the weather to warm up and it will be a great place to visit.
Had a lovely meal which was good value and excellent quality. Friendly professional staff topped off a pleasant couple of hours - we'll be back!
Made to feel safe and relaxed outside and within COVID restrictions. Wouldn't change anything, someone clearly knows what they're doing and the Buger was AMAZING!!
Particularly enjoyed the Broad Bean/Pea/Spinach burger - we do eat meat but less often than we used to, we ordered one of each burger but decided the veggie one was our favourite. We would eat more veggie options if you are able to offer them in future. A soft drinks menu would be helpful if easy to achieve as we had to ask what was available.
As our first visit anywhere after lockdown, overall a pleasant experience. We were lucky with the weather but maybe the addition of some umberellas & heaters would be prudent.
It was very well organised. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely come again
Despite current restrictions, the food and service were as excellent as always at the Royal Oak. As expected, the menu choice was a little limited, but there were still enough dishes to make lunch an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to our next visit.
Only lost stars for lack of outdoor heating as we chose a cool and slightly wet day to dine. Food and service as good, and friendly, as ever
Had a lovely lunchtime food and service top notch.
Lovely, tasty food and good selection! Only disappointment was only one bottle of slimline tonic left!
Staff and atmosphere excellent, would be nice to have a little rotation on the menu. Thank you for opening and providing 2 good nights out
We had a very enjoyable lunch outside. Food and service excellent, as always. Covid arrangements very good and felt very safe
Enjoyed our meal
Absolutely fantastic! Service was brilliant and the food was lovely. The garden seating is fab.
Fabulous lunch - lovely setting
Really enjoyed being out again everything was lovely and the staff were amazing. Thank you
The setting was perfect in clear sunshine. The service was excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable. As one might expect tgiven the Covid pandemic the menu choices were very limited but the food served on the day was very good.
Gluten Free Fish & Chips - amazing thank you so much!
Really enjoyable lunch with attentive professional staff. Making the challenging circumstances work well
We had a lovely time thank you
Fantastic food and service. Drinks a little expensive but the quality of the food makes it worth it. Will be back soon!
Great choice of drinks available, food was lovely (chicken burger and flatbread pizza), staff were really helpful and friendly. The sun was shining so it made it a perfect evening! Hoping to book your Friday night date, as we were unable to attend in December due to covid.
