"A lovely place in a beautiful village"
We stayed over night at the Durham Ox and had a lovely time. The facilities were clean, presentable and ideal for our needs. The staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The welcome tray was perfect after a long day - a cup of tea and chocolate was very welcome! The bedrooms were very comfortable, clean and tidy and a good nights sleep was had by all. The team in the bar, breakfast area and on arrival and departure were lovely. Thank you all. Read less

"Another lovely stay"
We come up this way 3 or 4 times a year and always come here. We like everything about it and have never been disappointed.
The field cottage is quirky, which we like but has low ceilings so would not suit everyone. Lavender cottage is a nice airy room. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service is always excellent. Our food has always been delicious. Read less

We have been a few times to the Sunday supper club and the value is unbeatable. No wonder it gets booked up!
Have also had a couple of midweek breaks and they are great value too. Charming place

The Durham Ox is a traditional 300-year old pub, family owned for the last 16 years. We are situated in the historic village of Crayke, North Yorkshire, with breath-taking views over the vale of York and a charming view up the hill to the medieval Church. Crayke is 25 minutes from York City Centre and in the heart of Herriot Country. The bar area has an original flag stoned floor and oak panels on the walls, as well as the bar fitted by the local woodcarver that bears his name and still takes pride of place. With several roaring fires alight in winter and an outside balcony & courtyard for summer dining the pub oozes atmosphere.

Five of the cottages are converted farm buildings. The Blue & Green Cottages offer a double room with en suite shower room, seating area, tea and coffee making facilities and L'Occitane toiletries. In addition the Large Cottage, Rose is spread over two floors with two bedrooms, one super king double and one twin, en suite bathroom and separate shower, relaxed sitting room and a galley kitchen. The Lavender & Field Cottages both with super king size beds and bathrooms that have a bath and separate shower. The Studio Suite is located above the pub and offers spacious luxury accommodation with 600sq feet of space, a super king bed, en suite bathroom, sofas, flat screen television, kitchen and honesty bar. If you like the idea of being slightly more independent, yet only a stone's throw from The Durham Ox, Ivy Cottage is an ideal option for you, with 3 bedrooms it sleeps 6 guests.

For Private Parties & Dining;
Our private dining area and sitting room for parties up to sixteen offers a comfortable yet smart additional dining option.
The Ox Barn offers a fantastic venue for events up to a 100 guests. We are happy to create bespoke events in the Barn, including weddings and conference facilities.
The Durham Ox embraces the principle of good food in relaxed surroundings.
