“A very special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

It had been many years since our fist visit to The Oak Tree Inn, and this spring we took friends visiting from Canada to this top quality restaurant. The welcome, the attention to detail, the unfussy service, and then the superb food, was everything we could have wished for. Our friends were enchanted and our evening at The Oak Tree Inn added a very special touch to their visit to Teesdale.

“Excellent food, great welcome, definitely recommend!”

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Oak Tree this evening, especially the plaice tempura starter and the lamb main which tasted lovely and was perfectly cooked. Everything was beautifully presented and the service was excellent. Thank you for a lovely evening.

“Fantastic food and service and wine list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

What a treat , there are 5 or 6 wonderful starters, mains and deserts , I could have eaten any one of them and certainly tested all the meals in each of our party of 3
Excellent quality , standard and presentation of food , great hosting and service, wines and food to die for in a lovely relaxed setting with country charm. We will definitely be back , do book ahead as we tried for another date which was unfortunately ( for us) full . The home made breads and the little bon bouche to start (all complimentary) were fabulous- too nice we had to ask to have them taken out of temptation otherwise we could have eaten the lot and then I would not have experienced the amazing desert that complimented my husbands desert wine very well. Fabulous range of wines on the list too. The quality reflects the price and we all felt for what we had the price was very fair

“What a fabulous experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

If you like quirky venues with loads of atmosphere and simply perfect food then this is somewhere you must try! Tiny, full of north country atmosphere with food that will blow your socks off (so long as you are not a vegetarian). We were a table of seven and every person at the table was blown away by the hosting, the service and, most of all, by the incredible food. A PERFECT 10*
