We haven't visited for a while but have enjoyed our previous visits.The recent bad reviews are sad to read as I've discovered the co-owner/chef has recently been involved in a very bad accident.Our thoughts go to all involved at this establishment and hope that your lovely venue will flourish again soon.

On arrival we approached a grubby front door that looked like it hadn't been cleaned for a long time. On ringing the bell we were greeted by a young boy in tracksuit bottoms and no shoes!! On the way to our room in a very dimly lit stairs and landing, we were shocked at the condition of this hotel. Everything,... More

I received an e-mail last night from KGB vouchers, and confirmed it today by phoning the Inn, that regretfully the Blackwell Ox Inn has ceased trading My now cancelled KGB deal was bought 6 weeks ago, for next weekend. A shame, I was looking forward to it. Thanks to KGB for their prompt email.

Found a pub that was serving food, £50 for a 1 course meal for 2 with fresh... More

We arrived about 1830 a bit tired and sticky after travelling down from Scotland only to be met with a blackboard sign at the front door stating no meals being served (some sort of problem with an accident to the Chef which closed the kitchens down). On our return from a meal in York a shower was the next order... More

Having just stayed this weekend, we cannot comment on the dinner because the Chef allegedly had been in an accident, so no evening meals were available. The breakfast was really good, my wife had the Full English breakfast and i had the Smoked Haddock with poached eggs. We stayed in Room 5 and i must say because it was so... More

Booked to eat here on an internet deal which made it effectively 1/2 price. Pub is on the outskirts of a nice village just North of York. The York Ales Guzzler was very good. There was only one young lad serving - who although trying his hardest - was visibly stressed out and lacked experience. Services was very slow -... More
