Enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch at the Durham ox. Food was fresh fast and absolutely delicious. Super friendly staff and a buzzing atmosphere. The vegetarian ravioli option was also a huge hit. Make sure to save room for pudding - sticky toffee pudding was out of this world!

It was a lovely night to sit outside for a pre dinner drink but it was a shame we were not informed about the special boards on the menu as I thought the choice was rather limited. After we had ordered and were shown to our table we then realised there were more food options which we would have taken... More

We visited the Durham Ox last year for a Sunday lunch and thought it was amazing and so really wanted to come back, I now wish we hadn't! We were shown to our table and about 15 minutes later an older waiter came over-we gave our drinks order to be grumpily told that he wasn't interested in drinks, he only... More

First the parking was ample and easy. The welcome was great, nothing too much trouble. The food was delicious and the service second to none. Spoilt for choice and the fish catch of the day was a winner. Will definitely return. Oh! And the view is something else!

Stayed here with my husband last night (Saturday 25th) and I must say the whole experience was brilliant from start to finish. We stayed in the studio cottage and it was huge! Loved the honesty bar and the bed was really comfy. We had drinks in the bar on the afternoon and it had a lovely welcoming atmosphere even though... More

Wonderful weather and an idyllic setting at the Durham Ox just added to the excitement of a truly lovely wedding. The rooms are extremely well appointed, clean, and located very close the the main building in the form of self contained cottages. I had a light meal on arrival, crab, smoked salmon, capers and finely chopped gherkins in a terrine.... More

Lovely location and great atmosphere but with the doors open the flies thought they could join our party!not that they bothered us as guests but the did land on our buffet table good ( which was delicious). Selection of local beers made the location authentic but at the same time familiar. Ample parking and accessible. Touch of thoughtfulness was the... More

We came to this restaurant on Sunday 5th June and had an amazing meal. The service was brilliant and the food gorgeous. We returned two nights later and it was the polar opposite. The food was appalling the service was poor. This was our last night in Yorkshire and we were looking forward to a delicious meal again. We were... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at this beautiful restaurant last week. Fabulous venue situated in a quintessential North Yorkshire village and on a pleasant warm evening what could possibly go wrong? The truth was, nothing. Perfect beer, perfect food, perfect service and we are left reflecting that it is definitely worth paying for top quality ingredients... More
