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

Having just cycled from York we were ready for a drink and lunch! The setting of the pub is lovely, nice outdoor area to sit, and plenty of seating inside. There were a few real ales on tap which is always a bonus! We had booked a table, the staff were friendly and helpful and had a bit of humour.... More

I had the fish and chips which were just perfect my wife had the duck liver pate which she thoroughly enjoyed. We both had deserts which were beautifully presented. The Durhan Ox has a lovely ambience and the staff are very friendly but efficient at... More

Had two meals here on consecutive nights and it was as if it was two different chefs. Our first visit was excellent, the food was absolutely wonderful and could not find a single fault. We only called on the off chance and it was reasonably quiet. We enjoyed it so much we booked for the next night. The second night... More

We walked about 3 miles from our B&B in Brandsby to the Durham Ox in Crayke and it was well worth it. The place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly. The food was to die for...we had to have all 3 courses and was not disappointed....all washed down with one too many black sheep ales. Downside is... More
