A former 17th century coaching inn, the lovely Brook Whipper-in Hotel is a great option for dining within the old market village of Oakham. Located in Rutland, Britain’s smallest county, Oakham is a top spot for visitors to the area, playing host to the magnificent historical fortified residence that is Oakham Castle which dates all the way back to 1190. The Anglian Water Bird Watching Centre is just a few minutes’ drive away too, making the Brook Whipper-in Hotel a great choice amongst keen bird watchers looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat.
Aside from the more formal option of The George Restaurant, both hotel guests and non-residents are invited to enjoy a relaxing meal or light snack in the cosy George Bar. A superb menu is offered here with a range of light snacks both hot and cold as well as a selection of heartier dishes. Children have their very own special menu and there is plenty for vegetarians to choose from too. As for the drinks, a good choice of local ales, bottled beers, fine wines and spirits are served at the bar as well as soft drinks and tea or coffee for those who prefer.
The George Bar is a cosy and snug little bar filled with period character. Large beams sweep across the ceiling and down to the floors whilst the huge open fireplace is roaring with warmth on colder days. Comfy couches and elegant armchairs are perfect for relaxing whilst there are various tables for dining.
A delightful little hotel bar offering guests a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience, The George Bar at the Brook Whipper-in Hotel is naturally popular. Free parking is an added bonus too, especially for those visiting the nearby attractions such as Rutland Water.
