We just returned from a 2 night stay at The Durham Ox with our dogs and 2 kids and it was simply divine! We stayed in their little Rose Cottage, a perfectly formed mini cottage with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. Breakfast was brilliant and we ate in the pub both evenings, the food was delicious. I can't... More

This hotel and restaurant was recommended to us about 4 years ago in a casual conversation with strangers in a pub near Leeds airport. They had been guests at an 80th birthday celebration and were lyrical about the food. Only now have we had the chance to visit and were delighted to find that not only was the dinner as... More

Stayed at the Durham Ox for 2 nights. Everything was perfect. The room was wonderful , the food was great in the restaurant and the bar was very lively. The menu was very varied and very good.the staff were well trained . We will certainly return to the Ox before too long.

We have previously been here and wanted to return for a special occasion, so I booked some time ago for 2pm. When we arrived we placed a drinks order at the bar and within 5 minutes we were shown to our table. The waitress put some mixed breads and butters on our table (but did not take the time to...

Unfortunately the Sunday lunch was only tepid; the plates were cold and the potatoes were hard as though they had been standing around for 20 mins. One guest asked for her lamb to be well done and it was very pink. No one wiped our table after the mint sauce had dribbled. It was a disappointing meal and we shall... More

Having sampled other pub restaurants in the group, my wife and I called in on spec one Saturday tea time around 6:30 pm. The intention being to sample a main course and the service for a future visit with friends. The pub had a very warm feeling but at that time of night, was devoid of any diners. As such,... More

Very expensive for what it is, £30 for a fillet steak and £25 for a rump that had to be sent back due to it being so small and not cooked as we'd asked! Very pretentious, some staff over attentive and others that couldn't be bothered. Not sure why it is rated so highly on here or how they can... More

We stayed for two nights with friends in September 2014 and enjoyed good rooms and excellent breakfasts. Cost £375 for 2 nights DB&B/couple. We enjoyed the evening meals although service was quite slow without comment on one evening.
