Excellent hotel

We had a superb dinner here on Wednesday. We all enjoyed our food hugely and the fish platters which are generous, were greatly appreciated. Service was excellent. It was very busy and hence rather noisy with a large crowd.

I was looking for a good place to go for lunch with my friend - so decided to try The Durham Ox . The service was excellent . As I didn't want a large meal I asked for a starter as a main - and this was no problem . The food was beautifully presented and tasted very light but... More

Our B&B owner recommended The Durham Ox & boy, are we glad she did! It looks like any ordinary pub from the outside, but when you enter the building there are rooms off here and there. We sat in the Tasting Room the first night. Every one of the staff members were friendly & polite and the choice & level... More

After being let down by another pub restaurant for a family special occasion we arrived at The Durham Ox an hour before our table would be available. The staff in the bar were incredibly polite and professional and managed to have a large table ready for us 15 minutes after we arrived on a very busy Saturday night. The meals... More

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
