We loved the Durham Ox. Just a few rooms behind a restaurant in a small village. Quaint rooms with modern bath and comfortable beds. The restaurant was fully booked on a rainy Monday night and after dinner, we understood why - the food was excellent and the staff was friendly.

Crayke is a small village on a hill about half an hour north of York. It's a perfect location for exploring North Yorkshire and the Moors. The Durham Ox is an upmarket pub where locals mix with visitors and dogs are welcome. We stayed in 'Field' a sweet little self contained 2 storey cottage. There are 3 or 4 cottages...

My wife had the rib eye, cooked to perfection medium rare, she has also had the fish pie which she thoroughly enjoyed. To top it all, nice cod beer too, what more...

Ate here yesterday evening & I have to say the service plus the quality of food is still just as good! I've eaten at the Ox a few times in the past few years. I've always had a steak because I remember the first time I went I thought it was one of the best I've ever had and it's...

I surprised my partner with a stay at the Durham Ox on the 4th March and I have to say it was amazing! I never usually write reviews but this was really special. We are not local to the area so when we arrived at what he thought was just a pub he was slightly confused. He soon found out...

10 of us from 3 generations attended for Saturday dinner on 13th February to celebrate a family birthday. The food was exceptional. Service was incredible (not what you expect to find "out in the sticks") Great atmosphere and cosy decor. The men loved the beer. It was expensive but it was completely worth it (I would say good value for...

We spent three days at this pub,and it was glorious! Nothing was too much trouble. With two dogs in tow it's sometimes hard to find somewhere. But this was brilliant, staying in the courtyard meant that we had our own front door. So they could be let out whenever they needed. The food was to die for breakfast and dinner...
