“Wedding Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We recently held our wedding reception at Oxo's on the Mount and we couldn't have wished for better food and service for ourselves and our 30 guests. We wanted a 'small and intimate' wedding celebration and Oxo's delivered the perfect package. We chose prosecco and canapes for arrival and a lovely 3 course meal with rump of Nidderdale lamb or chicken with chorizo risotto for mains and both were beautiful, many of our family and friends commented on the lovely food and surroundings of the restaurant. We + some of our guests stayed the night at the hotel, the rooms, breakfast and attention to detail were excellent. The staff were friendly, polite and made us feel so welcome. Thank you for our perfect day!

“Great venue for a Christmas do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

We had our works Xmas do here and were most impressed. Quality of food and service far beyond what I have come to expect at these events.
It was a more expensive venue than others we looked at, but it was well worth the little extra.
The table was also beautifully decorated.
We done to all concerned

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Oxo's on the Mount recently hosted our Christmas office party which was a huge success. As well as boasting a fabulous ambience (within the bar, lounge and dining areas), the food and service/attention to detail were excellent. We will definitly book the venue again.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

I went here with my family last Saturday. They only told me they could visit the day before so I felt very lucky to get a table! We had a slight traffic disaster meaning that I was half an hour late – my family were waiting in the bar area for me looking very looked after with drinks and menus when I finally arrived! The waiting staff were extremely understanding both on the phone when I rang to explain the situation and once I finally got there! They were so accommodating – I was fully expecting to have lost the table! I notice someone grumbling in a review below as they were “told off” for being 10 minutes late. Perhaps have the decency to ring them as I did next time! I had no such issues....

The setting is beautiful. Very classic without being old fashioned. Formal, but not stuffy.

We were welcomed with bread and an amuse bouche, both of which were delicious! We ordered starters and main courses each and all were beautifully presented and very tasty. I almost didn’t want to eat my seabass - it looked like something from masterchef! The attention to detail was very evident and everyone in our party of 4 had nothing but praise for the dishes. The lamb was tasty, the beef bourgingnon was tender and flavoursome. A particular hit was my scallop starter – my Dad got a major case of food envy even though his fishcakes were also delicious!

We skipped on desserts as the portions were ample and we had no room! However my husband joined us once we’d finished eating and again, the staff were very accommodating as they allowed us to finish our drinks in a lovely bar area so he could join us.

I’ve already recommended this place to many others and I only visited 2 evenings ago! I’ll definitely return....
