My wife and I arrived at 6:15, 15 min before our reservation, we had a very nice drink outside before going to our table. As we had got their early we picked from teh early bird menu and use the saving to get a big antipasta starter.. normally i wouldnt expect an awful lot from the antipasta.. but the fact... More

This place is still one of my absolute favourites. We visited on a Saturday evening so it was very busy- always a good sign! I had tried booking a room but sadly all were fully booked so I arranged accommodation in York. I have previously stayed in two of the rooms which are just wonderful with everything you could possibly... More

Due to a mix up with the booking at a competitor in the next village we ended up here on a cold Sunday night. What a find! There was a genuinely warm welcome, the service was superb , and the food choice was amazing. The recommendations from the maitre d' more than lived up to expectation. The sticky date pudding,...

We visited on a Monday evening - fortunately we had booked as it was really busy. The service was very good with attentive and friendly staff. The menu was varied with quite a number of specials. We had and very much enjoyed the house red wine! The food was good, but perhaps not exceptional and the restaurant certainly erred on... More

Went to the Durham Ox for my boyfriends Granddads birthday. There was a lot of us and we were sat in a separate room away from the bar. I ordered the king prawn starter which was lovely and the main course of steak, again faultless. My only gripe was that I don't like added salt to things and I always... More

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at the Durham Ox - our 3rd this year - and we ate in the restaurant both evenings. We were celebrating our anniversary and chose the Durham Ox because we thought the meals would be special - and they were. On our 2nd evening I had the... More

We enjoyed two meals and an evening drink at The Durham Ox last weekend. The food was delicious, the service efficient and the staff charming.

We stayed in nearby Easingwold for 5 nights and ate here 4/5 nights due to the wonderful food and excellent value. They do an early bird, 7 meals for £7 before 7pm. The menu is varied and certain items change on a daily basis. Their sticky toffee pudding is divine. The service is impeccable and the staff are friendly. We... More

My wife and I visited for a birthday lunch a few Saturdays ago, having chosen the Durham Ox based on lovely meals and service we have had before there. The restaurant was quiet, so no excuses down to it being busy but the service and the food were disappointing, particularly bearing in mind what we paid (£80 for two with... More
