Welcome to the Royal Oak Leighterton

The Royal Oak is the quintessential Cotswold country pub – a free house serving delicious food, great value wines, excellent local ales and warm hospitality. With a true village inn atmosphere, the Royal Oak offers roaring log fires in the autumn and winter, and a pretty walled garden for outdoor dining in summer.

Covid-19 Update While we are not yet fully open, we are running amazing pop-up events in partnership with local breweries and chefs.
