Once upon a time, Brook Whipper-In Hotel was a 17th-century coaching inn overlooking Oakham's bustling Market Square. These days, it still reigns over the square ? still a charming a place jostling with shopping boutiques and quaint buildings.rnrnBrook Whipper-In Hotel's afternoon tea might be served in the lounge, Market Café or outside on the lovely terrace. They're all casual settings, especially the lounge, which is decorated with cushy tartan sofas and gilt-trimmed oil paintings. The al fresco terrace also clings on to an old world feel, with its petunia-laden hanging baskets and piles of logs for the wood-burning fire. The hotel's Market Café, on the other hand, is brought right up to date with its streamlined furnishings and curving bar.rnrnWhen it comes to food, Head Chef Brenton Williams demands fresh, local produce wherever possible, so diners can expect Brook Whipper-In Hotel's afternoon tea to commence with a plethora of flavoursome, freshly made sandwiches. Salmon and cream cheese, egg and cress, ham and cucumber ? all of the classic flavours are present. King-sized scones come next, filled with generous dollops of fruit jam and cream. Thanks to the chef's seasonal mantra, the sweets are ever changing, but in the past have starred chocolate éclairs, tiny fruit tartlets, cherry Bakewells, Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle cake, and miniature cinnamon swirls.rnrnBrook Whipper-In Hotel is in Oakham's town centre, surrounded by quirky shops and a Friday market that draws in the crowds. For an extra dose of history, diners can pop by the town's picture-pretty castle.
