We lived in castlefield for over 2 years and never made it to the ox!!! What a mistake!! The pub is definitely on our top 5 in the city centre. The food is awesome, we got a 2 course meal for £15 and the quality was cracking. Will definitely be back!

We were going on the Corrie tour at 1.50 and it was only 12.30 so we looked around for a pub. Well, there one was, just down the street. It looked quite smart so in we went. Two smiling young ladies behind the bar welcomed us into the pub. I was impressed! Sarah took my order for drinks and said... More

Booked because of proximity to tour, we weren't disappointed. Two courses for £12.95, good home cooked fish and chips, followed by sticky toffee pudding. My husband had an ox burger and bread and butter pudding. Great selection of beers. And easy walking distance to the cobbles...

It is a great pub with a great atmosphere and the food is very good, BUT it was very noisy in our room as we were at the front right above the bar. The road was closed on the night we were there which I'm sure must have cut the noise down a lot but the noise from the pub... More

3 of us stayed here for 2 nights for £120. Amazing value for money. Noise levels were fine for its location, clean and spacious room. Good service and good food too (we had lunch which was plentiful and tasty).
