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

Every year I book the private dining room and sitting room in The Durham Ox for myself and staff for a "Training Day" and every year we have a fabulous day! The staff are always friendly and professional, making us feel very welcome. The rooms that we book work really well for us - we set up the dining room... 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. On my most recent visit I ordered pheasant breasts, these were sadly obliterated and incredibly overcooked I ordered some vegetables with my food and got 2 green beans a single sprout.. Finished...

We had travelled up to North Yorkshire for s few days and were directed to The Durham Ox. Pretty village pub, warm and welcoming. I had braised ox cheeks which were so well cooked and tender, hubs had the belly pork which had proper crackling. I had sticky toffee pudding with ice cream which was to die for. Both meals... More

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.

Aside from the place having special significance with myself and my fiancé (one of our first dates was here). I can say with no bias that this is quite simply ... awe-inspiring! We have been time and time again and even stayed over and can honestly say that each time has been a fantastic experience for both service and outstanding... More

Plus a room ups tears for a small dinner party I know I have used both over the past few years. They also have accommodation . The... More

We have eaten here a couple of times. The food has been excellent and the staff are lovely. We went for a late lunch today and despite the place being almost empty, there was still a friendly, pleasant atmosphere. Well presented veggie dish, which was delicious, my only criticism would be that maybe another vegetarian option would be good. Overall,... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Ox at the end of October. The first night was spent in the delightful green cottage, fabulous enormous bed and lots of welcome touches such as the ground coffee and cafetiere, good quality toiletries and even the Yorkie bar. We then had the 'Earlybird' menu in the pub and can only say that it... More

We ate in whilst staying the weekend at the Durham Ox and enjoyed a good selection of meals. The place was full and service was slow on one night which was a problem for the members of the party who had not chosen a starter.
