We stayed here on a recent trip to York. The room was excellent fitted to a high standard and tastefully decorated. The staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. The food in the evening was good with a range to suit all and breakfast was excellent, the best mushrooms ever. I would highly recommend the Oak Tree Inn and we will be returning ourselves in the near future. They are celebrating their first anniversary this week and I hope they have many more.

Only a one night stay but nothing I could find that was not good about my stay. Great selection of food and drink. Clean and quiet room fitted out to a high standard. Top notch breakfast. Helpful and efficient staff.

We stayed here on our way back from Scotland to break the long drive. In a sweet little village a short distance from the A1 but very quiet. I am so glad we stopped there. The room was small but spotless with a very comfy bed and a good bathroom. We slept well and were only awakened once by a local cockerel. The food was very good - both dinner and breakfast. Lovely local ingredients very well cooked. It was buzzing on a Sunday evening which I always think is a good sign too. Friendly and professional service too.

I stumbled across this pub's website whilst searching for a hotel in York and I am glad I did!!
It was just perfect. We were meeting friends for a catch up. We could sit at a table and enjoy the company without shouting to be heard or being jostled - and no waiting for a taxi back to the hotel!!
The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The pub was traditional in feel but with a contemporary twist. The rooms were well appointed and the bed extremely comfortable. (just stayed in a standard room)
The food; beautiful. All four of us chose something different and all raved about how good it was. I had the rack of sticky ribs for my main and that alone was worth the 2 hour drive. I exaggerate not.
We will recommend this place over and over and will be back, without a doubt.
