The Royal Oak
Ranked #1 of 2 Long Whatton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2017

The pub is extraordinary with farm to table menu and good service. The room however was not very sound proof and we heard both sides of the other rooms both nights which was something that I would avoid in the future. So we rate the pub a (5/5) excellent and the rooms as a hit or miss a (3/5) whether you have a quiet night.

Room Tip: I suppose you could ask them for one that had sound proofing, room 3 does not.

A group of 6 of us stayed at the Royal Oak for one night. We had 3 of the stable rooms each and we were surprised at how spacey and well kitted out they were. The bed is extremely comfy and the bathroom is well equipped.

We also had a meal at the pub and it was amazing and everything is so reasonably priced.

Highly recommend. There isn't an awful lot to do in the area but it's still nice for a peaceful stay

We stayed 3 nights and were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation. Good sized room which was very clean. Nice modern bathroom. The bar and restaurant being a few metres away made our stay excellent. Very friendly staff. The village was worth a wander around too. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a local wedding, the welcome was warm, accommodation was great, bar was good, breakfast excellent and Sunday lunch sublime, all topped with excellent service, couldn't rate this place highly enough, it's a shame we don't live closer, we would gladly become a regular part of the fixtures and fittings - fabulous!

Visited this restaurant for the first time.
The menu was simple with a mix of traditional and modern recipes

The staff were excellent and very polite and extremely attentive.

The food was absolutely delicious

I just wished they had more options for vegans and gulteen free diners

However I would certainly visited again.

The carrot and coriander soup was the best i have ever had.

The sticky toffee pudding was delicious but just a little on the cold side. The pudding needed to be a little more warmer
