We chose this restaurant for a family meal out for Mother's Day as it advertised a good vegetarian menu. Sadly, when we arrived, there was only one option available as it was Mothering Sunday. No roast dinner like the rest of the family but mushroom ravioli, of which there were six pieces, with a bit of salad. Apparently vegetarian mums...

A second visit combining a meal and overnight B&B. What a treat. Food was simply excellent and to be able to take a few steps and fall in the comfiest bed, in delightful decor, after a great night with friends, is to be treasured. Then rejoin everyone the next morning for a hearty breakfast, recount the night before and away...

I had the half duck a l'orange, no orange could be tasted and it was more like duckling size, it looked a good size but the middle section was hollow, served with 3 tiny roast potatoes that were pale, soggy and difficult to cut, the red cabbage was nice though. I mentioned to the waiter that I couldn't taste any...

Called in on the off chance. Haven't been since last year. Crab cakes for her French onion soup for him. Then lobster macaroni for her and mussels with fries for him. All washed down with a few glasses of a good French wine. After a cherry Bakewell tart to share. Presentation and service was impeccable but friendly. The photograph is...

The staff were friendly and It was busy so we expected to have a certain amount of time to wait, however the service was...

A delightful Sunday lunch. A very tasty starter of ham terrine with picallili then really delicious pink lamb and my son had beef which could have been more pink! But was tender and both served with crunchy veg. The Theakeston beer was perfect. I had a yummy creme caramel and excellent coffee. Our waiter was charming, he explained the menu...

We had a really nice night, with lovely food and wine. I can recommend the seafood plater and the chateau briand. The cottages are defiantly upmarket. With tasteful decor. It's certainly somewhere to visit for a night away or if you are looking for somewhere to stay if you're visiting York. We will be back.

Spent fabulous weekend with friends for a birthday party. Location was ideal – easy access for shopping, walking or a city visit. Room was so luxurious and well equipped. All staff were professional and bent over backwards to make sure we all had a good time. No request was too much for them. Would highly recommend for relaxing holiday/romantic break...

On both Friday and Saturday evenings we had excellent service and food in The Durham Ox. I would highly recommend this venue in a lovely old village in North Yorkshire. It has easy access to charming Thirsk and beautiful Helmsley. The accommodation is well decorated furnished and very comfortable. We were in Lavender cottage,my brother and his wife were in...

We had stayed at The Durham Ox on numerous occasions over the past 5 years and decided to hold a special birthday weekend there with a party of 13 in total. Some us stayed in Ivy Cottage and the rest in the Durham Ox rooms. From the minute we arrived the service was fantastic - as there was only 5...
