eating & drinking at the durham ox

Please see our safe space code for all guests here

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; expect Blackboard Specials that reflect this. Our Dessert Menu provides a truly fabulous finish to any meal. We cater for all dietary requirements including Vegetarian, Vegan & Gluten Free Menu. Our Menus will be a little different on reopening post covid lockdown.
On Sunday lunchtimes we serve our Sunday Lunch Menu, embracing all dietary requirements.
