Fantastic welcoming cosy pub….would definitely recommend for a short break, it’s ideal for walking holidays, or shopping breaks, it’s dog friendly, all the staff were very welcoming and discreet in their service.

“Absolutely fantastic…we stayed in the green cottage which had the biggest comfiest bed outside the USA and had dinner bed and breakfast (using the autumn special which made the value stunningly good). Whilst the food is award winningly good what I like about the place it it feels like a pub not a swanky restaurant.”

“Frequent visitor….I have been staying here around 9-10 times a year for 6 years. The rooms are gorgeous with lovely bathrooms. Field Cottage is my favourite but has low beams so taller people watch out! The service has always been brilliant….well worth a visit!”

“Fantastic venue for family wedding…If you are looking for a venue to host a country wedding then look no further! From initial planning through to the actual day the team at The Durham Ox did an amazing job of ensuring that our daughter’s wedding reception was everything that we could have hoped for……

“Murder Mystery Dinner December 2017…..We had a great time with friends…. The actors were great sports and took the time to chat after the story had finished. The food was super – the vegetarian option was as delicious as the meat option. Staff as always efficient and friendly. This autumn we’ve also had Sunday lunch and early bird dinners – all great food and good prices.” TA January 2018
