Welcome to the durham ox
Three hundred years old, and family owned by the Ibbotsons since 1999.
We pride ourselves on offering friendly and efficient service; showcasing the best of local produce in our menu, as well as stocking an extensive range of wines and cask ales; it is wonderful to be recognised for this.
An award winning traditional pub complete with flag stone floors, exposed beams, oak panelling and roaring fires in winter.
We offer Private Dining upstairs in the main pub as well as our Ox Barn that seats up to 80 for larger events. And on Friday and Saturday nights we open The Dog House for drinks and bar snacks.
For those wishing for over-night accommodation there are five converted stone farm buildings that provide a peaceful and charming place to stay and the converted Studio Suite located above the pub. All refurbished during 2022/23. We also have Ivy Cottage, a 3 bedroom self-catering cottage within walking distance in the village.
JOIN US AT ONE OF OUR EVENTS!
We have a fantastic line up to choose from.
