As always, the safety and wellbeing of our guests, employees and visitors to the Whipper is paramount and we are taking all the necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep everyone safe. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our guests, friends, neighbours and colleagues for unwavering support during this unprecedented time. Oakham is a very special place, and one that we are honoured to call home, it's our sense of community that will help us through this ever-changing and uncertain period.
