I have been twice for lunch and always have lovely service and beautiful food. Perhaps not the cheapest for lunch but the quality is there so I don't mind . The curry is particularly authentic and tasty , desserts very good as well .

My husband and I stayed at the Whipper-In using a gift voucher purchased by a family member. In our opinion this place is very tired and dated, it appeared to us to be run by a skeleton staff, breakfast was a big chaotic, running out of milk and hot water etc. Whilst there, we were unable to have a shower...

Oakham is a lovely quiet little town with a magnificent church, a castle (actually a moated manor house), a museum and seems very friendly. I stayed at the Whipper-in Hotel in the market square.
