Depending on how you approach the village, the signs say either Helperby Brafferton or Brafferton Helperby, an apparent confusion which to locals probably makes perfect sense. At this village inn there is a spacious bar for informal dining, and a barn extension overlooking the rear courtyard for more formal meals. The first of the Provenance Inns, The Oak Tree’s menus offer seasonal Yorkshire produce (suppliers are shown on a map on the menu), and locally reared beef (burgers and steaks) cooked in the charcoal-fired oven. Also on offer are beer battered fish and chips, home-made steak and ale pie, seafood platter and for dessert, sticky toffee pudding.
