Good food, pleasant environment

The pate starter was very good, roast beef was very good, potatoes and veggies nice and an excellent cheese plate for dessert (plenty for two people). Presentation was very good. Service was ho hum. Plates were lukewarm. I wish they had served... More

Visited on a busy Saturday night. Arrived a bit early so our table wasn't ready, I saw a spare table near bar and asked the waiter if we could sit there until our table was ready, "no" was his abrupt reply, not "very sorry madam but this is already booked" , slightly rude I thought. Sat down at 7.30 and... More

Dear judeness We are always sad to receive a poor review, but on Saturday we clearly failed to deliver our ‘Ox Standard’ throughout the evening. We pride ourselves on friendly staff and a hearty welcome – we fell short! The dishes you mentioned included our signature Chateaubriand for 2 to share and the Grocers Platter, already a popular addition to... More

The meal was a Sunday lunch but a 3 course with 3 choices on each stage. I selected a game terrine, belly pork and sticky toffee pudding.... More

Whenever we visit my In-laws in York, there are three things that can pretty much be guaranteed; An early morning Dog walk on the "Ings" is always a pleasant experience, the York Ring Road will drive even the most hardened traveller to despair, and the Durham Ox will always provide a splendid meal.
