We visited this place to atttend a surprise birthday party. We were booked into a private upstairs dining room and lounge. We had our own personal waiter who was a very nice chap. 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. This time, we only got 2 out... More

I have wanted to eat here for 3 years. Various things had prevented this until today. Myself and my fiancée drove the 14 miles out there. The setting is beautiful and it was one of those crisp days. The interior welcoming. We'd booked and were 20 minutes early so thought a glass of wine was in order. The barman whilst... More

Have been a pretty regular visitor to the Durham Ox since a teenager, that makes it 37 years and counting so I have seen the changes that the Durham Ox has gone through over the years. Although now more a gastro pub it still welcomes locals just looking for a pint and conversation as well as those there for a... More

I have ate here a few times recently on work outings. The staff are lovely, the environment pleasant. The menu looks rather nice and the menu looks decent.

Ideal location to tour the area. Beautiful villages and countryside. We were disappointed with Scarborough - Candy floss and slot machines,Worth driving in the Howardian hills. Did not have time to visit Castle Howard.
