There were 15 of us, several had steaks cooked to their individual choices, all were happy with the results. The service was great.

not so much a review of food or accommodation - but of service and attitude. My friend and I were caught in a massive downpour today on our bikes and were taking shelter outside the Oak Tree Inn when the manager and staff spotted us - even though we were soaked to the skin they invited us in out of...

We stayed here on our way back from Northumberland. It was a roasting hot day, but the service from the staff was really attentive & helpful. For a pub that is clearly very new, it has a good traditional feel but is finished to a very high modern standard. The room was really well decorated and furnished and all we... More

We picked the Oak Tree Inn for a one night stay at the end of our holiday and it has much to commend it. The building is very tastefully decorated with a comfortable bar area and smart restaurant and the bedrooms are nicely furnished. The bar served one of my favourite beers (Black Sheep) and has a good selection of... More

We are local people who enjoy good food and service and have now tried the Oak Tree restaurant 3 times. Our complaints range from poor availability of starters, lengthy wait between courses despite the restaurant being quiet, steaks not cooked as requested, and finally, fish in batter inedible served with frozen chips! To be fair, we were amply compensated each... More

We randomly picked this hotel for a couple of nights stay and certainly struck lucky. The place is quality everywhere from the breakfast, evening meals and rooms. Free tea, coffee, bottled water and chocolate everyday and a great jacuzzi bath just topped it all off. We will be back

We picked this small hotel after reading other reviews and we were definitely not disappointed. There are only 6 bedrooms but the two we had were excellent. Beautifully furnished, comfy and with plenty of space. We were delighted that there was a restaurant downstairs which had a varied and modern menu and the food was good and well presented. The...
