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!

This restaurant was recommended as a good place for dinner. To me it appeared to be somewhere between a pub and a restaurant. The food was delicious and the setting was really nice. However, it is not up to the standard of many restaurants; and it has also lost some of the friendliness of typical pubs. Having said that, it... More

We have just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at the Durham Ox, our 3rd this year. It is a place we go to when we want to give ourselves a treat and in this case we were celebrating our anniversary. On arrival there was some confusion about the room that we had been allocated but this was quickly... More

Absolutely charming beamed bedroom with an excellent modern bathroom. First class breakfast with very high quality ingredients, bacon and eggs in particular. Reasonably priced. Helpful, efficient and pleasant staff. What more would you want?

We popped in when staying in the area to enquire whether dogs were allowed in the bar and a very friendly male staff explained that the bar area not the restaurant was fine and took time to show us the menu. When we arrived a few days later for an evening meal we were informed by different member of staff... More

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

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
