The Oat Hill public house serves a fusion of modern British cuisine, with an extensive selection of wines, cask ales, a great list of draught and bottled world beers. A selection of spirits and cocktails to rival any bar in London all this set in the art deco surroundings of this wonderful building with well established & landscaped gardens. A real gem in Leicestershire.

Let me explain 'consistent' as I have been here a number of times. The starters and the mains are always excellent. The puddings and service are always disappointing. The savouries really are great. The pork starter with pulled pork, sausages and crackling is soooo good. The mains are always delicious but choose wisely as sometimes they have combinations that don't... More

We ate on a Wednesday night as a couple. We got nibbles to share, a main each and a desert to share as well as a couple of drinks. It all came to a bit over £50 which was very reasonable for the quality of food we received. The food was all well presented and tasty. The service was friendly... More

This restaurant is in the place that once upon a time was the Greyhound pub. It doesn't look much from the outside but we tried it out for lunch having read good reviews on Trip Advisor. Inside the bar area has been made to look like a wine bar/bistro and is OK although there is too much dark wood, it... More

My wife and I just visited the bar of this establishment for pre dinner drinks. We stood at the bar, two people were serving. The bar was very quiet. Neither of the members of staff acknowledged our existence for approximately five minutes, not even to explain that they would serve us once they had completed what they were doing. They... More

Been to Oat Hill this tonight with 4 friends and we walked out after 25 mins, you can only be ignored for so long at the bar before leaving. Appalling service for what appears to be a lovely pub, the place was very quiet so no excuses. Sadly I won't be returning in a rush or if I do I... More
