“Lunch here was first class. The food, service and atmosphere smacked of professionalism. We’ve already booked to return, and taking our friends with us. Can’t wait.”


“Coming for Sunday Lunch at the Durham Ox feels just like coming home.”


“Although our vacation was 3 weeks in duration, the week we spent at the Ox was the highlight of our trip. The lodgings were beautiful, cosy and spotless … and the meals were fantastic, beautifully prepared and served.”

“You were so kind and accommodating; all the staff were so friendly and made the weekend a very memorable one. Particularly being lucky enough to have the large upstairs lounge to ourselves. It was amazing and you were so kind and attentive to us. We are hoping to book a similar event for about 16 people in about 18 months’ time and will certainly be back in touch. In the meantime, i can’t wait to return to dine with you again, the food was absolutely delicious.”


“Absolutely fantastic do – excellent service from all at the Ox.”

“The best hotel I have ever stayed at – the food was amazing and the atmosphere brilliant.”
