Nestled in a tranquil, rural setting, just a few miles west of Tetbury, the newly refurbished Royal Oak in Leighterton is surrounded by rolling countryside and picturesque Cotswold villages. Badminton, Highgrove House, Westonbirt Arboretum and the Cotswold Way are all within a stone’s throw, while Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham are just a short drive away.
The owners, Paul & Antonia Whitbread aim to create the ultimate country inn, serving fabulous locally sourced food, good wine, well-kept ales and great hospitality. The beautiful Grade II listed building underwent an eight-month renovation, which saw it stripped back and carefully restored, ensuring it stayed faithful to its origins. The result is a bright contemporary space that gives a nod to the rustic, complemented by restored antiques and original features.
With a true Cotswold village inn atmosphere, the Royal Oak offers roaring log fires in winter, and a pretty walled garden for outdoor dining in summer.
When it comes to food, the kitchen crafts classic British dishes using seasonal, local ingredients wherever possible. All meals are made from scratch, right down to the bread, homemade tomato ketchup and house pickle!
Whether you’re looking for a three-course dinner, simple bar meal, or a relaxing drink, the Royal Oak is sure to offer you a warm welcome in an idyllic country setting.
