The Royal Oak Inn, known affectionately locally as ‘The Splash’, is an historic inn approximately 400 years old. Located in the peaceful village of Little Cawthorpe, an idyllic setting on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), just 2 miles from the Georgian market town of Louth. Situated in its own large lawned gardens, next to a picturesque ford, it’s the ideal location for walkers and families alike.


With 3 restaurants and main bar in Olde Worlde style surroundings, traditional awnings with low beamed ceilings and a cosy atmosphere, we pride ourselves in providing great drinks and hearty British pub grub with ingredients sourced locally.

Outside, we have large, superb lawned gardens full of seating, for eating and drinking in the beautiful sunshine.
