This was the second time we had stayed here and this time was just as good as the first. We got a very good deal for two nights midweek - although by the number of people in the pub each evening, it felt like the weekend. Lovely cottage room with fabulous walk-in shower (no bath) - perhaps a little tight...

Excellent fayre...!!! We stopped at this excellent hostelry for Sunday lunch without booking (I would advise you do!!) and were lucky to get a table. Outstanding service, wonderful food and a great atmosphere. One of the best Sunday lunches I have experienced for many a year. Worth the trip.

Food service excellent plenty of choices, ribeye steak and accompaniments spot on. Decent pint of Black Sheep too. In different circumstances the location is ideal for...

We visited the Durham Ox as part of a stay that included "A Christmas Carol". This was set in Scrooge's own parlour (the barn). From arriving, we were impressed with the facilities within the various bars and the accommodation. The "little things" made our stay so very enjoyable... a good selection of beers; comfy beds; jug of fresh milk in...

Having stayed at and eaten at a Provenance Inn pubs before, I was keen to try the Durham Ox and I'm delighted to say my high expectations were certainly met. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a lovely bathroom and all the finishing touches you'd expect from a quality hotel - I particularly like the Yorkie bar! If...

We had a fantastic break at The Durham Ox. We were able to take the dog which was a bonus. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing. Lovely fires to sit next to after being for one of the many walks to do locally.

The service was personal, friendly, humourous and most helpful. Interesting menu with a variety of local beers. Food was good quality and portions very generous. Allow a couple of hours to enjoy the experience. Recommended and worth booking.

We booked the Durham Ox for a little get away before Xmas, we stayed in Rose Cottage, we have eaten here before and it was excellent so thought it would be ideal. The Cottage was very nice and clean everything you need was provided. There is an honesty bar which we didn't use but was plenty of choice if you...

Since my last review I have been back more than 4 times. Sometimes for business (in Hull) and sometimes with the family but living in Holland and having family in Scotland we always drop by for the night before the ferry trip back home. Have stayed in the all of the rooms now but by far the coziest is the...
