"Hard to beat for friendliness and quality of rooms, food and service."
Stayed in the Blue Cottage with our dog and ate in the bar area every evening. From check in to check out we couldn't fault the friendliness of the staff and the efficient service. Even though the main restaurant area was busy we were not 'forgotten' in the bar and the excellent food was served with the same attention to detail. The cottage was warm, well equipped and ideal for a short break in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire. Read less

The Durham Ox is advertised as dog friendly, a description which often fails to deliver. Here the opposite is true and it was was great to stay in an establishment which genuinely welcomes dogs.

height in the bedroom, the beams hit whichever way you turned. No reception and too busy staff meant a mistake in our booking.

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 H2K of Harrogate 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.
