Family of 4 went for a wonderful walk in the countryside and then decended on the Durham Ox for lunch. A beautiful pub with a lovely outdoor seating area, all made better with a wonderful friendly cat that my children adored! The food was fantastic, with the boys opting for burgers, the lamb tagine for myself and my daughter had... More

We shared a starter of crab on sourdough toast, then I had the Barnsley lamb chop on bubble and squeak my husband had the steak, both dishes were very tasty. We then shared a desert of the chocolate brownie which was everything you... More

The title says it all! We arrived for lunch on Monday 13th July, surprised to find the car park overflowing. We were greeted by very friendly bar staff and shown to a table at the front of this delightful country pub. We both opted for fish and chips which were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I followed with sticky toffee... More

My husband and I held our Wedding Reception in The Barn @ The Durham Ox on Saturday 11th July. The location is stunning, the views amazing, the food superb (comments were received from our guests), the staff personal & friendly and the overnight accommodation perfect. Thank you for making our day truly memorable & special, The Douglases x

Really well specified room that felt warm, comfortable and good for relaxing. Great outdoor seating area with AstroTurf. Really decent, well kept beer. Although the Ox appears to market itself as a gastropub, the food is OK, but not much more than that. Very comfy dining room I had some asparagus pasta with broad beans; lots of home made pasta...

khph Dear kph Many thanks for your comments. As you say, even without heating, with the weather we've had over the last few days it has been hot, and if you didn't/couldn't open the windows it would have been very sticky. I have just been and checked the windows in Lavender, as I was slightly worried there must be a... More

Oliver P Many thanks for your feedback on your stay with us last weekend. We pride ourselves on our service and standards and while we achieved these in some areas, obviously we very much ‘dropped the ball’ in terms of taking your booking on a weekend when we had a wedding booked (absolutely not what we normally do). When we... More

We were given a warm welcome, which reminded us of why we love the Ox. Service excellent. Staff outstanding, especially the ladies that work at lunchtime. Stayed in the Studio, loads of space and a pleasant sitting area outside. Would recommend puddings for two!

Quite possibly the best Roast Beef dinner I've had when eating out. The beef was perfectly pink, the roast potatoes were just the right level of crisp and the trimmings were superb. All topped off with a sticky toffee pudding to die for. The service was exactly the right pace which not a lot of other local restaurants get right;... More

Found this fabulous place through the good pub guide app. We stayed for two nights in green cottage which was lovely with a seating area just off the bedroom. Our bedroom window looked onto the beer garden which was great when we first arrived because there was a very talented singer performing. We ate in the pub both nights because... More
