Can only say that the meal, service and ambience was excellent. We had the tasting menu and because of this I had a dessert ( I am much more of a starter and main course). If all desserts were like this I would be converted to mail and dessert. Absolute treat. Well done to chef

We had the set lunch which at £25 for three courses is an absolute steal. Starting with the tasty hake and mussels we then moved onto the star of the show - the chateaubriand with ox tongue, sprouting broccoli and smoked potato - which was delicious. Everything was worthy of its place on the plate and performed admirably. Dessert was... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinning experience in Ox this month. The staff were well trained, if a little rehearsed. Food was very good, matching wine was beautiful and the stand out of the night for me. The staff organised a table next door at Ox Cave after we had finished our meal, to enjoy cheese and wine....

Enjoyed the winter tasting menu with matching wines - quite exciting not knowing what you were going to be served - disappointed - definitely not - the food was amazing and the staff were excellent both with service and with their descriptions of each dish. Fergus who did the wine pairing was great - and the wines were fantastic -... More

Had a pre-Christmas lunch at Ox. Food was of excellent quality, but the portion sizes were extremely modest! The service was good and the wine prices were acceptable, but my goodness we left feeling hungry! Had a pre-Christmas lunch at Ox.

We went for a pre-Christmas dinner at the OX. The service was easily the best bit of this mea, being very friendly, professional and refreshingly knowledgeable about the food and wine. To be fair, that probably isn't particularly difficult when there are only 3 starter, main and desert options, almost as though they are trying to force diners to try... More
