Stayed here a couple of nights midweek and ate here on first night. Place was very quiet which was a shame as the food was very nice and well presented. |The whipper curry was excellent and would recommend.

The Green Bar and Bistro, set inside the Whipper-In Hotel on the Old Market Square in Oakham, is a relaxed restaurant with a cosy and authentic charm. Originally a 17th century coaching inn, the hotel retains its period appeal with warm open fires and comfy armchairs, and is only a short drive from Uppingham and Burghley House. The George Bar and Bistro has a cheery dining room with wooden floors and fresh flowers which is popular with locals and hotel guests for lunch and informal evening meals. Signature dishes at The George include the braised lamb shank with a minted pea purée; the Oriental salmon with egg noodles, stir-fried vegetables and soy sauce; and the roasted vegetable lasagne.
