The Durham Ox provided just the rest break we were looking for with our 2 little Labs. Good walking all around the village,and a lovely Rose cottage to come back to for fresh ground coffee and Yorkie bar all provided by our hosts. Evening meal in the Ox was very relaxing and tasty food at sensible prices. We will be... More

We are big fans of the Durham Ox having used their hotel a few times - we returned in February and rented their newest addition Ivy Cottage, an absolutely charming self contained, self catering cottage a stones throw from the pub down the main street in Crayke. The cottage is stunning, furnished so beautifully and has its own garden and... More

We visited for the midweek supper club, which is an unbelievable deal. The food is excellent, breakfast was amazing and the beer is brilliant. Our room was lovely and had the best tea tray ever and a massive comfy bed. Every member of staff was friendly and professional. Thanks so much x

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Durham Ox. We had heard about the pub because of its foodie reputation but decided to stay because of the excellent value for money supper club offer. We found the two rooms we stayed in both excellently furnished, with comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms (travertine tiles and good showers). There were good quality bath... More

We stayed for 2 nights on a dinner, bad and breakfast basis. We were able to bring our Labrador puppy with us and we were all very comfortable in the Blue room which benefited from a very modern shower and very good complimentary toiletries. Crayke itself is a lovely village for a quick evening explore, very picturesque with outstanding views.... More

We have happily stayed here on previous occasions and the Mid Week Supper Club offer this time was excellent value. The room was large and spotless while the bathroom was modern, well thought out and worked perfectly. Over in the bar the four cask beers were well kept and cheefully served by the friendly staff. Dinner was a fairly standard... More

Stayed for one night midweek. Very enjoyable stay. Clean and comftable is all we ask and that's exactly what we got. Would recommend to anyone for a short getaway either midweek or a weekend. Very reasonably priced too which is an added bonus

We have just returned from a night away at The Durham Ox under their superb mid week supper club offer. I've had my eye on the place for a while after visiting some of its sister inns and it didn't disappoint. The room was lovely, the bar welcoming with great beer and a good selection of gins and single malts... More

This is my favourite pub/restaurant/hotel in England! We've eaten often here and never been disappointed or had cause to complain. As we don't live so close as we used to, we decided to take advantage of their current March 2015 offer and stay for one night for £120 for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. Again, we were not disappointed. The room... More
