eating at the Durham Ox

We embrace the principle of good food in relaxed surroundings, we have always used the freshest and best of ingredients and buy locally wherever possible.

Our A LA CARTE MENU celebrates a fabulous array of locally sourced meats, vegetables, fresh fish and seafood. As the seasons change so do our menus, to reflect the wealth of local produce for which this area is renowned. We also make all our own bread and petit fours. With a special DESSERT menu for a truly fabulous finish to any meal. We cater for all dietary requirements.

Our various BLACK BOARD dishes complement our menus, with fish or meat dishes we may not be able to source on a regular basis. Game & seafood dishes are firm favourites as well as asparagus, wild garlic & wild mushrooms – all dependent on the seasons and availability.

In addition to our CHILDREN’S MENU where possible, we are always happy to serve smaller portions of our dishes.
