Ovation Bar

Whether it's after work drinks, post-dinner cocktails or gin tasting - Ovation Bar in Oakham has got you covered!

Opened in 2021 by husband and wife team, Bianca and Chris Nix, Ovation Bar is the place to head for a drink or two.

Supporting British vineyards and local produce, their menu is brimming with a little bit of everything from  fabulous fizz to beautifully British wine, so you can enjoy a light aperitif-style drink or a boozy cocktail but if you don’t fancy that, the SA wine options are just as on-point, thanks to Bianca and her South African background, but you really should try the cocktails, all priced at £9. The ‘English’ Porn Star Martini has our vote – it’s their version of this iconic cocktail uses only local ingredients: Two Birds Spirits Passion Fruit Vodka and Rothley Wine Estate High Hopes English Sparkling Wine.

Feeling peckish? Try their amazing Ovation Platters. The finest charcuterie created from ingredients sourced from local Jimmy’s Smokehouse and The Kings Arms Inn but it’s their delicious, creamy baked Camembert that’s we’re looking forward to trying. 
They’ve got lots on including Summer Sundown sessions every Friday featuring live music and a DJ plus rum, wine, whisky tastings and more.
