Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was my second stay at the Old Oak Tree in a quiet and easily accessed location in South Kilvington by Thirsk. I stayed for two nights. The rooms are spotless, spacious and well appointed with a very comfortable bed and a warm en-suite bathroom....I had breakfast and dinner, both of which offered a diverse menu of freshly cooked dishes of high quality and with generous portions. All the staff are welcoming, friendly, caring and treat all their guests well. A most enjoyable stay, and excellent value; I look forward very much to my next visit. Yorkshire hospitality at its best!More

3 of us went for lunch. As a vegan I'm always a bit worried about my choices. Although there was little choice, what I had, a Thai curry was lovely and tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and I will return at some point....All I ask for is more choice.More
