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...

Fell upon the Oak Tree by chance whilst driving through the lovely countryside, We both had soup and sandwich with a small portions of chips included. We did however indulge in some rather fine Onion rings (Yummy). We both really enjoyed our lunch and left feeling satisfied and cheery. The staff were all very pleasant and nothing seemed too much...

Excellent service, lunch and drinks for 4 - couldn't fault the friendly staff or cooking, presentation, ambience - eg there were log fires on a cold and misty January so it was nice and warm when we sat down. Lovely - been many times and will be back again!

This is my forth visit and as ever it never fails to please. There has been a couple of noticeable "cost cutting" moves - make your own toast, sliced white bread at breakfast and no home made granola. It could have been due to it being the Christmas holiday period. Overall very comfortable, cozy and warm with excellent food served...
