2 hairy bikers booked in an the Ox for a night last week We stayed in the "green" and "blue" cottages. Dinner was fine, beer excellent, weather extraordinary - we sat outside until 11.00 pm. They had an event on that evening but there were no issues for us. Third stay at this place and plan to be back in... More

We extended our stay at this delightful B/B pub. It is a fabulous place to stay with an excellent standard of food, service and accommodation. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We will definitely return.

Our second visit to this area and to this pub. The staff are all well trained and the service is good but it just lacked the friendly feel. Food was good but the choice seems limited and the price ranges from reasonable to very expensive with little in between. Ate here over 2 nights and pleased with all meals, but... More

Visited for a most pleasant lunch on Tuesday, very agreeable atmoshere and warm welcome on arrival. For myself, the way the staff are properly trained and know how to do everything as it should be was a high spot. So often the lack of direction spoils the day..

I wonder if the Durham Ox was the reason why legend has it that the Grand Old Duke of York marched his 10,000 men to the top of Crayke hill! Certainly this atmospheric old coaching house with it's friendly welcome, lovely food and fine ales would be a good enough reason. Not to mention the interesting regular events put on... More

I have been staying at the Ox for several years and mistakenly thought that I had reviewed it previously. This is in my opinion the best pub/restaurant with rooms in Yorkshire if not the country! There are 6 rooms all individually designed with superb large comfortable beds and the bathrooms are wonderful and functional. The toiletries are high quality, there... More

We detoured out of our way to visit this place, as they claim to be dog friendly. Got inside & politely checked were we could go with dogs. We were brusquely told that they don't allow dogs (the dogs in question are Yorkie Westie crosses & well behaved). We definitely won't be going back there - EVER. I don't normally... More

My family and I spent several nights at this fantastic little hotel over Easter weekend with my dog and can only say the most positive things about it. From arrival, we were greeted warmly and shown to our room -- a beautiful, two-floor/two-bedroom suite with a kitchen and large sitting area at the back of the property. The suite was... More

We stayed at the Durham Ox for one night during an England excursion and what a lovely experience it was! Crakye is a sweet village with very pretty walks in the surrounding areas which are detailed in a little information booklet in your room. Our room was very large with a sitting area and tv and the bed was divine!... More

Visited the Durham Ox for my wifes birthday. First time we have visited, and will definately be going again. Lovely setting with great views and a great village. Had booked an overnight stay, and the room we stayed in (Lavender cottage) was superb. Lovely furnishings, huge comfortable bed and excellent, modern bathroom - all at a great price.We booked dinner... More
