Welcome to the Royal Oak Leighterton

The Royal Oak is a friendly, homely Cotswold country pub – a free house serving classic pub food, local cask ales, great wines and warm hospitality. With a true village inn atmosphere, we offer roaring log fires in the autumn and winter, and a pretty walled garden for outdoor dining in summer.

Historic 1700s Freehouse

The beautiful Grade II listed Royal Oak at Leighterton is thought to date from the 1700s and is described by BBC’s Doomsday Reloaded as “more likely a village pub than many in the Cotswolds”. Ample parking is provided in our private car park within the grounds of the pub. Booking is advisable at weekends and for large groups.
