Very good value all round lovely and clean and run by a lovely couple who couldn't do enough for their guests. A proper Northern welcome is assured. I wouldn't hesitate in returning to this Inn if I was in the area again.

Had a lovely homemade Sunday lunch, just a pity the service was very slow on this occasion. We booked a table for five at 1'o clock and sat upstairs to dine, after waiting approx 20mins nobody came to take our order, so had to go downstairs to order ourselves. After almost an hours wait our food came hot fresh and... More

Stayed for 2 nights as a break before continuing on to Scotland. What a fabulous place to unwind. The owners are lovely & the meals were huge & delicious. Nothing was too much trouble. Great place to stay. Bathroom was a little on the small side. We are from Melbourne Australia.

I stayed here after a long drive up to watch Henley play Blaydon. Although I was disappointed by the result of the match (but well played Blaydon, you absolutely deserved to win), I really liked the Oak Tree. Great local atmosphere in the pub, lively clientele, warm & clean bedroom, fine breakfast, friendly staff and very good value for money.... More

My daughter & I stayed here in June while we were on a driving holiday around Britain. We didn't want to be tied to an itinerary so had a hotel & inn freedom pass & we were booking hotels as we went 1 or 2 days in advance. When we arrived at the Oak Tree Inn we were shown to... More

We (2 couples)stopped at the Oak tree inn for 2 nights in Sept 2012 after looking for accomodation near Beamish. We were shown to our room which was a seperate building to the pub and we were pleasantly suprised at the cleanliness and size of the accomodation. The other couple were equally satisfied with the room they got which was... More
