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...

A lovely break away. Very friendly, clean and welcoming. Excellent facilities. Wonderful breakfast. Cannot fault our stay at all. A perfect getaway. This is everything you would expect from a country inn and more.

Stayed 1 night . Yorkie bars, decaf coffee and coffee pots in bedroom a treat. Lovely clean rooms, room was on the front cross roads, road noise was not an issue. Good double glazing. Clean bathroom just a little cosy. The bed in Willow room needs replacing it slopped to the left. Breakfast food good but service a little erratic.... More

Stayed at the Oak whilst visiting friends in the village so didn't get the chance to try the food - except for the breakfast, which was everything you would expect in Yorkshire. We stayed in the 'Lime' room - excellent, one of the most comfortable hotel rooms we have stayed in. The bathroom was amazing - jacuzzi bath, shower cubicle,... More

Being frequent travellers we enjoy good food, drink, service and accommodation. This place 'ticks' all the boxes. From entering the front door you can tell there has been a great deal of time, money and effort invested in the place which to us at least, represents what an English pub should be in the 21st century. An excellent range of... More

My partner surprised me with a night away at this beautiful hotel. The room was amazing. We stayed in the room called 'oak', and it had a huge Jacuzzi bath and a huge bed. It had everything we could ask for including gorgeous views. We stayed for dinner too and the quality of the food was amazing. The breakfast was... More
