Food after a long walk

Excellent service and even a gluten free menu with a large selection of starters and main courses. Even the chips where done in GF fryer. Will be back to try more of the starters.

This place has a lovely warm ambiance and great food. The burger I had was honestly the best burger I have tasted - home made and you could tell. Prices were very good value for very good food.

Visited this family run restaurant with family recently on a sunny weekend. The restaurant, bar and outside area were all very busy. We were inside at the restaurant and seated quickly. The menu has a good selection, some of the food is locally sourced. We were not advised of any specials from our server and we over heard another server... More

This is a lovely looking place from the outside and inside it is a bizarre collection of clocks, old stuff and trivia adorning every wall, quite cute and homely in some ways. Decent sized menu and choices but pricey for what it is and most would say overpriced. Taste wise the food was excellent but found the service quite slow... More

Had read reviews before trying this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Visited with family, three of us went for the oak tree burger and a one for a pepperoni pizza. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were also advised to try one of the desserts, which again was amazing. Staff were friendly and welcoming, service was great. Would... More

We stopped in for lunch and the food was fabulous, we both had burgers which were without doubt among the best we have ever had. The staff were also extremely good, very friendly and helpful.

We stopped here for coffee and scones. Unfortunately the coffee was dreadful, weak and lifeless and at £2.75 for an americano i would expect better. The scones were very dry and didn't taste fresh. The staff were very friendly and my son had a lovely portion of chips!

At The Oak Tree Inn, one experiences the kindness people can have for each other. Here you can be yourself, whether you are a backpacker, or an older tourist, or a family with kids, or... The food was delightful, the service very accurate. A place to go to when you are in the neighborhood!
