The only eating establishment in the village also having extensive accommodation facilities. We came for dinner mid week. There is a limited early evening menu or a full a la carte, we selected from the latter. The service was attentive and friendly and our order was taken in good time. The food was nicely presented and well cooked. In our... More

Admittedly we hadn't booked and arriving at 8.00 in the evening we were told that it would be up to 45 min wait for a table for 2. Made the mistake of waiting. I eventually plumped for fish and chips and my friend, sea bass. We were eventually seated at 9.00 and asked if we would like water. When I... More

We chose The Durham Ox as a midway stopover for our trip to Scotland. What a find! This establishment is at the center of the village and is a true community hub. Our room did not disappoint. It was sumptuous in every way from bed to bath. The views were amazing too. Even though they were very busy staff managed... More

The Ox is an institution which, maybe sadly, has matured since the early days when the gruff owners bluntly served on a take it or leave it basis. It now has found a place with the genteel North Yorks set and the ambience has improved. If you enjoy olde world England country pubs where meals are served in a rustic... More

I stayed here for one night as I was in the area on business. As I was arriving late I phoned to ask if there could be any food for me when I arrived. On arrival I was presented with a stunning cheese plate, a side salad and a very much needed pint. The welcome was warm. The room was... More

Very nice inn with good food, excellent staff, nice atmosphere. Large open fire, beams, and stonework. If weather is better than when we visited, there is a nice local walk to bolster your appetite.

My husband took me here for my birthday and had planned it and booked for 2pm as we were driving down from Durham. When we arrived, the head waiter came repeatedly to ask us what we wanted to order. I had to feed my son when we arrived but he kept coming back (within approximately 30 seconds) to ask if... More
