We ate three breakfasts and three dinners. In both cases two were very good and one was disappointing, certainly given the prices which are pretty high. The range went from a halibut special which was magnificent to a gourmet burger which wasn't (magnificent or gourmet). Also beware which dining room you get: some are cosy and intimate but they also... More

We had a weekend lunch with the children. The food was excellent but the service was a little on the slow side. The furniture is traditional but can be a little uncomfortable.

The chef here creates excellent food, the surroundings are lovely and the staff are very attentive. It is great for couples or families. The menu ranges from cheap and cheerful to top of the range and it is all delicious.

We were attending a presentation evening at nearby Easingwold Golf Club and were looking for somewhere close by to eat. If only we had discovered this place before, we would have spent a whole evening here on a different night instead of a rushed meal in and out in a couple of hours! The food is absolutely divine and delicious!... More

Champagne or Bloody Mary to go with the fabulous breakfast choices!!!! Well we were on holiday and only walking in the surrounding area! Superb lunches and of course saving room for dinner in the evening. I am not a dessert fan but the coffee, lovely thin biscotti or cheese board, complete with fruit cake (well it is Yorkshire) were absolutely... More

We booked at short notice mid week and got a table without any problem. Pleasant environment. Good service and well paced delivery. Our food was fine, the BBQ pork ribs my companion had were falling off the bone tasty and generally wonderful. I was surprised as the unadventurous menu.

Wonderful dinner and had at least a half pint from each cask - all excellent. I am not a big eater and Durham Ox is flexible enough to take a red mullet starter and lay it on a bed of delicious greens to make it dinner - Sam, managing the restaurant and inn, suggesting this. It really was excellent and... More

Friendly atmosphere from staff and locals, food choice for kids a bit of a let down unless you like fancy dinning.
