The Royal Oak

  • Welcome

    Hosts Neil and Maria extend a warm welcome to all at this charming and full of character 15th Century Inn

Since 1490 The Royal Oak has been at the heart of the village of Whatlington and the focus of the local community, offering locals and travellers welcome refreshment.  This tradition continues today, with the addition of a hearty welcome to families with children of all ages.

With a wealth of original features including the large inglenook fireplace and the 80ft indoor well and quirky oldie-worldly interior and private large beer garden, The Royal Oak is the perfect place to meet up with friends and family.

Our Kids Areas

Being the proud parents of three little ones ourselves, we know and appreciate the difficulties and challenges of family outings with small children.  It is our aim, therefore, to offer a family-friendly experience to all parents/carers.  With dedicated indoor and outdoor playing areas and a great kids menu, The Royal Oak offers a relaxed and enjoyable dining experience for both the children and the adults.  So you can bring your children along and still enjoy a few care-free hours, with a drink and/or a meal, while your kids are happily entertained in our Kids Areas.
