03 Feb 17 We used to call in to the Durham Ox in the 1990’s when visiting relatives in Derbyshire, as everything about it was extremely good. Since then we had been informed by a relative, incorrectly so as it turned out, that the owners had moved near Matlock. Last night we thought we’d “give it a try” and my,... More

In my opinion these guys do the best steak in Derbyshire. Huntsman. They have never done us bad one. Only the best. We always enjoy our meals and always made welcome.

We called in at short notice, and was offered a table for two, when the food arrived the potatoes were burnt black on one side,the dessert dish looked as if it was a Mr Kipling portion, We have not been back since.
