We had high hopes for this pub as it seemed really lovely inside and out. Service was really poor throughout. I'm not blaming the staff here because they all seemed quite new and confused. We had to confirm our order several times, waiting long periods after ordering drinks (over half an hour), and confusion as to what we had ordered...

Rather than stopping at one of those soulless, rip off joints that litter our nation's motorways,I encourage everyone to do their homework and seek out little diamonds like the Oak Tree,which is a couple minutes away. It's a beautifully designed place,as are all Provenance Inn pubs and all the food we had was well above average.

We stayed here as we attended a wedding nearby in boroughbridge. I'd left it too late to book a room in the hotel where the reception was held, but I'm so glad because it led me to finding this lovely place. Ryan, who greeted us, was so helpful, opening the room early for us to leave our bags. We had...

Visited for my husbands birthday. Friendly pub with a good selection of drinks leading to a lovely restaurant area. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable offering great advice on the food and wine. We had probably the best steak I have ever tasted really excellent. The restaurant was priced a little higher than I would normally pay but I believe...

Oak Tree Inn was vibrant, very friendly staff, excellent food & very nice hot breakfast. The rooms were adequate, clean and very nice large bed. We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the place, very busy with locals and it had lots on offer for other times of the year.

Weekend stay. Really impressed with staff and overall comfort levels. Bar has many locals, all of whom helped provide a good atmosphere. Just six bedrooms and perhaps this helped the staff to interact so well with all the guests.

Excellent from start to finish. Arrived late for a one night stay and received a warm welcome. The staff member immediately noticed we had a table booked very shortly and offered to push this back which was most helpful. At the bar, staff were knowledgeable about drinks and let us tell them when we were ready to eat in th...

This is a gem of a place, not the cheapest in the area but not over priced either. We stayed for one night whist travelling on business and were very impressed. The attention to detail and the quality of the fixtures and fittings are all good. Friendly and informed staff completed the experience. We particularly like the three open fires...
