Family Golden Wedding Celebration

Had a wonderful meal as guests of my relations. The lamb was especially to my liking. We were unable to stay here as it was full on the night we were dining. I would certainly return if in the area and would love to have the suite in the main building as opposed to one of the cottages.

We have been going to call here for quite a while and decided to go for my husbands birthday. Quite a long way for us to go as it took about an hour 1/4 but was worth it. Service was good with the staff very pleasant and helpful when it came to choosing food. They do a menu where you... More

The Durham Ox is a fantastic village pub. The atmosphere is always lively and the welcome warm. The food and drinks are first class (the puddings....Wow!). The ONLY niggle is £25 for a Ribeye steak! Don't get me wrong the steaks are gorgeous but not worth £25!

This is a lovely looking pub in a fantastic location. The food is pretty average and becomes poor value when you look at the prices. Starters around £7 and main courses £15-£20. Portion sizes are good but the food isn't spectacular. The pub is part of a chain and its quality isn't better than most other chains but this doesn't... More

Went on a day trip exploring and came across this little or not so little pub. There was lots of choice, the food was great and the staff were very good! Will definitely be going back!

My wife and I recently visited to celebrate her birthday. The menu is fairly good with a choice, then service was attentive without being overing bearing. My wife started with a Duck Terrine, which looked and tasted lovely.....but the portion size boarded on the ridiculous. One slice about the size of a match box with one small pice of toast.... More

We've been here many times and it is our favourite restaurant. We've never been disappointed, the service is always prompt but unobtrusive and the food is fantastic. I know things are improving in other establishments, but this is still one of the few places which serves pudding wine by the glass - that's if you get that far! Be warned,... More

We have eaten here many times over the years, so know what to expect with regards to price and quality of food on offer. We went again as a family, for Sunday Lunch and as ever the food was cooked well and beautifully presented. The vegetables were rather cold on this occasion however, but tasty nevertheless. Service was OK but... More

This is one of the busiest days of the year however, that is no excuse and we thank you for your review, customer feedback is how we endeavour to keep improving. Many thanks Chloe More
