“Good quality family meal and excellent service”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

With 4 adults and 2 children had a birthday celebration evening meal here. We had a selection main courses and all the food was good and the service excellent in a nice dining area. Having eaten at 2 other local pub restaurants recently, this was far better food quality.

“Friday night meal”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This was our first visit to The Ox,can't fault the food and wide range of food that was gluten free,and most of the staff were lovely,however one waitress was rather ignorant,didnt want to wait and listen to what we wanted for sweet and as soon as one of our party had ordered she turned her back and started walking off, and again after the second person ordered,then she brought the wrong dessert and when I politely pointed out that i didnt order the fudge cake she practlcally threw my ice cream at me, however to her credit when we asked her to stop being so rude she did apologise and make an effort to serve with a smile

“Continues to be excellent North Baddesley Gem”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We visited the Ox .....
twice in past month, a Friday and Saturday night. Cannot fault this venue and staff which shows that good management , John, brings good results.The staff in the restaurant and bar could not do enough for us which I must say remains throughout all of our visits.
Both nights had live entertainment ,guitarist/singer on the Saturday and female singer on the Friday.What a treat!
Each time we choose a different meal and the food continues to be amazing just wish we could shake the Chefs hand. A hidden Gem in North Baddesley.
Thank you The Ox.AGAIN.

“Great value 2-course lunch for £10”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We visited for lunch on a Wednesday. The interior was pleasantly cool on a hot day. The £10 menu was very impressive for that price. I chose whitebait with a tartare dip for the first course, while my wife had grilled goat's cheese with salad. Both were tasty and well presented. We ordered a glass of Chilean sauvignon and a glass of Foster's lager. These were late arriving but reasonably priced and absolutely fine. For the main course we both chose a 6oz rib-eye steak. This was good quality steak, cooked rare and medium-rare as requested. It was served with a pot of french fries, more than we could eat, and a well-dressed salad. It would be hard to imagine a better value lunch for just £10. A good selection of desserts were available for another £2.50.
