Having had enjoyable visits to other pubs in the group decided to visit the Durham Ox. There was nowhere to eat food inside with a dog - so we made a swift exit. This policy is now unusual in an area rich in walking opportunities.

We stayed in the green cottage were so impressed with the location and setting. The bed was so massive and comfy! The best nights sleep in so long, im 8... More

The downside is that this very nice, but only bathroom is downstairs. And if one is like me and my wife that need to go to the bathroom during the night that is... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay at the Durham Ox where we stayed in their Lavender Cottage for our wedding anniversary. The bed was huge and very comfortable and the cottage was spotless. Not a cheap venue but one which we felt was worth every penny. The staff were great and the restaurant food was very good. The... More

My wife and I have just returned from our 6th visit and once again we were not disappointed in any way. I began to write a review and before I knew it I looked and there was a 5000 word essay. Anyway, I decided to delete that and keep it simple, so here goes. The Durham Ox is an absolute... More

Have been to this pub many times with family who live nearby, the food is excellent as is the service. My husband and I recently stayed over night in the Green cottage & I can honestly say it was one of the best nights sleep I've had in a long time! The room was charming & the bed was super... More

One of the best pubs you will find to enjoy great food, a good atmosphere, and quality accommodation, all topped off with staff that care. You will spend a long time trying to better The Durham Ox, so stop looking and go and enjoy yourself, book in whatever the occasion, you will not be disappointed.

Simply a great pub and restaurant. Food is very well prepared, the menu offers a good choice of meals, good ales and other drinks, very friendly staff and a calm, relaxing atmosphere. I'd highly recommend it for Sunday lunch!
