    The Royal Oak, Whatcote is situated just outside the market town of Shipston on Stour.

    It dates back to 1168 and is one of the oldest public houses in the country.


    We proudly offer a bar with pool table and darts, alongside our Michelin-starred dining room, which showcases terroir-driven, ‘proper country food’.

    We focus on wild meats and foraged ingredients and our aim is simple: We want to tell the story of our community, the producers themselves and how we’ve utilised their ingredients.


    Sometimes a dish will be on the menu for a six week period, fully celebrating the early or late season. Conversely a dish may be fleeting - a week, a service or even just for a single table of regulars - a micro-seasonal snapshot.
