My husband and I took his parents for a pre-Christmas lunch on Christmas Eve. We've visited the Durham Ox (sister pub), in Crayke many times, but The Oak is a bit closer to us now, so we thought we'd give it a try. There are many similarities between the two, both have really homely, welcoming atmospheres, and the food is... More

We had previously visited the Crown & Cushion at Welburn which is part of the same group. The Oak Tree has a similar style of layout although I don't think it is quite as many tables. We visited lunch time, quite late and there wasn't anyone else eating so was a bit worried that it wasn't as popular and therefore... More

The website and signage suggest that this is a steak restaurant, but it is so much more than this. The food was excellent with a wide choice. My starter and mains were both from the specials menu - chorizo & scallops to start with, followed by pheasant ragu, both of which were delicious. Managed to find room for some chocolate... More

We travelled for one night to the Oak tree Inn with our dog Riley - what was really depressing was we only had booked for one night. The reception we received from Ryan and his team was first class. Their dog friendly room and bar area were superb. The room with stunning en-suite was one of the best we've ever... More

We stumbled upon The Oak Tree Inn without a reservation, it looked nice and we thought we would give it a go. We were slightly shocked that at 12.20pm on a wet Sunday they had to check if they could accommodate a couple of walk ins. We were accepted and seated in a very tastefully decorated dining area which is... More

The staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and very welcoming. The booking and checking in process was very easy. I had a tiresome long journey and arrived later than I expected yet they were not at all phased giving me assistance with my bags. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed. Immaculate bedding beautifully made up. the evening meal... More
