Recommended we arrived early to take advantage of their "Magnificent Seven" menu and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 6 and there were plenty of tables available. Food was brought to the table very promptly by very pleasant staff. Quality was good and the main course excellent value for money. That said we felt the puddings were on the...

Called here for a drink last year and immediately said we'd have to come and stay, so we did last Friday night! Great rooms, great food, great staff, great location. Evening meal was excellent, I had the half duck which was cooked to perfection for me, nice and crispy with very little fat. My wife had chicken kiev which was...

We went purely to the restaurant and were not staying in the hotel.Nice atmosphere with good outside seating if it is warm enough ! Meals looked good with pub grub being given an up market look. However only had time for a starter. service was slightly slow but I guess most people would go here on a special occasion so...

We always enjoy our time at the Durham Ox, always friendly and welcoming with great beers/wines and food! The early bird menu is great with a lovely Rib Eye steak on there! Kids enjoy it too! Will be back again soon,

The Durham Ox is delightfully positioned in the midst of this lovely village which is worth a visit in itself. We arrived without a booking and were given a very warm welcome and super table. Very pleasant, efficient and friendly staff, very varied menu made it difficult to choose. In our party of five we all thoroughly enjoyed the food,...

The Durham Ox was very nice. Our room was cozy with wood beam ceilings. It was very clean. The bathroom appeared to have been recently remodeled and was very nice. It had a heated towel rack which was great for drying clothes. The bed was comfortable. We stayed in Lavender Cottage which was in the back corner. We would occasionally...

Went as a couple for a celebration meal. We're both vegetarian and do not have large appetites but came away still hungry. Starters (fennel, artichoke) were fine. The main course - spinach and mushroom wellington - was very disappointing. Four small rounds of puff pastry with no spinach, a few button mushroom halves and a hint of cheese, served with...

We met up with friends for dinner and an overnight stay. The room was lovely, very comfortable big bed, lovely bath and shower. We stayed in Lavender cottage. Food was absolutely average, just pub grub really. Perfectly acceptable but nothing special, and maybe a little pricey for the size of the portions. Breakfast fine, but we could have done with...
