A Bit About Us

For those who know The Oak Tree of old, they will have seen it through many guises. It’s true to say it’s been like a cat with nine lives! But since acquiring this North Yorkshire gem back in 2010 our owner, Provenance Inns & Hotels, has breathed a whole new life into what we are proud to have today – an award-winning, warm and welcoming rural escape.

We can’t say enough about our obsession with seasonal dishes, offering the freshest of flavours at the time they are most meant to be enjoyed. And with access to the most incredible produce from our own kitchen garden at nearby Mount St John, our chefs are in their element crafting the most mouth-watering menus throughout the year.

In true Yorkshire style, we like to be great hosts and love nothing more than to offer a pillow to rest your head at the end of the day. And with our six unique double bedrooms, we can go a step further than just a pillow. With luxurious finishing touches, the quality you experience in the welcome, the food and the drink simply continues through to our boutique accommodation. Next time you’re in need of a restorative escape, give us a call and enjoy a little piece of Yorkshire bliss.

Award-Winning Dining

To say we love all things seasonal, sustainable and local is a slight understatement! Our whole ethos is emersed in the provenance of all things. Where we can’t grow a particular requirement for ourselves, we seek out only the very best, like-minded artisans from across the county to partner with us to bring to the table only award-winning dishes fit for all.

Our values are woven through everything we do; we believe our guests should feel excitement anticipating their visit, should feel wholly welcomed and immediately at ease when they step through our door and most of all can be assured of a dining experience they will treasure. We love to help make the memories, deliver on all our promises and to see faces return to us time and time again.
