We wanted good food but not in a stuffy environment. The Oak Tree fit the bill perfectly! It took us approximately an hour from East Yorkshire, however the drive was scenic and the village was beautiful. First impressions were of a traditional, yet contemporary, rural pub. The atmosphere in the bar was friendly and at one point a local even... More

Last weekend we went out fir Sunday lunch and opted for The Oak Inn knowing it was part of a chain of very good pubs. This one is definitely one of the best so far! Great service (very accomodating-i was on crutches).Quick,attentive and polite staff. Honestly the best roast beef I've had in many years! Lovely relaxing atmosphere. Will return!

We enjoyed a pleasant day, at the oak tree. Staff are outstanding, the food was lovely. Stayed in Oak Room, a little bit small, however spotlessly clean with good facilities. Will return. Another success for Provincial Inns.

This was our first stay at the Oak Tree Inn, and whilst I had been expecting it to be good anyway after reading the reviews and checking out the website, it still managed to surpass our expectations and it was truly excellent value for money. The staff were genuinely lovely, creating a warm welcome and helping us out with recommendations... More

This was our third stay at The Oak Tree and was booked very last minute for a very reasonable price of £70 B&B for a Superking room. We stayed in Lime which is a lovely room, with a very comfortable bed, lovely shower and jacuzzi bath. We thoroughly enjoyed the York brewery beers that were on tap and enjoyed the... More

The Oak Tree has fairly recently become a steak house and it does seem to do it rather well. My wife and I have stayed there a few times and never been disappointed but the steak element was new. We chose a Porterhouse steak which was cooked to perfection and washed it down with a couple of bottles of PSI... More

This was our fourth stay at the oak tree,the welcome in our experience is always warm,the staff always welcome and the rooms we stay in are always lovely... The addition of the new steakhouse BBQ style menu was a nice addition and the restaurant was fully booked with a nice atmosphere on Friday night. We stayed in the Oak room... More

We booked this hotel for an overnight stay after reading previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Our room was called the Hornbean and it was just outside the main building. It was very clean and spacious. The hospitality tray was more than ample and if we needed it replenished we just had to ask. We dined in the resturant in... More

A little bit of a drive to get here from York but definitely worth it. Helperby is one of those tucked-away places that the locals like to keep to themselves. The food offer is excellent at the Oak tree set in an atmosphere of a relaxed bustle. The venue was a mix of bar propping friendly locals and those like... More

This was my first visit to The Oak Tree Inn in Helperby. We stop for a lunch time meal. My first impression was that the pub was very well renovated. The beer was excellent and the menu looked very good. It was mainly a grill with a good selection of steaks and burgers. My wife had beer batter fish and... More
