OUR STORY

The George Inn has been a feature of Oakham’s historic marketplace since the late 16th century. Although renamed in 1987 to The Whipper-In, it is the original character that has prevailed for over five centuries.

In August 2022, we purchased the Whipper-In with a vision to lovingly restore the hotel to its former glory under its original ‘George’ name.

THE STORY SO FAR

The Whipper-In will gradually retire and The George Inn, Oakham will emerge over time through several phases, we invite you to join us on our journey…

LOOKING BACK

This beautiful example of a rural coaching inn has offered respite for weary travellers and has been a central hub for the local community.

It has played its part in important business meetings, the serving of legal notices, announcement of election results and as a gathering place for local business owners.

We bought The George Inn because we firmly believe that with sensitive care, this important piece of history can once again flourish and this new chapter will see the hotel reaffirm its place in the heart of our Rutland community.

HERE & NOW

So far, the hotel has undergone an initial phase which has seen new, sumptuous decor throughout, including: refurbishing all 22 bedrooms; the new George Bar; the Parlour and Dining Room; the Snug; updates to the reception and garden.

A Supper menu has been launched on Friday and Saturday evenings with plans to eventually offer this during the week too.

LOOKING AHEAD

The next phase will include five beautifully refurbished bedrooms, a boutique cinema and small spa for exclusive use.
