Welcome to the durham ox

Three hundred years old, and family owned for the last twenty.

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. 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. We also have Ivy Cottage, a 3 bedroom self-catering cottage in the village.
