Fantastic steak especially with sides and sauce. Menu for non beef eaters was a little limited. Kids menu was very good. Shame it was a little quiet, although it was early.

Amazing food, when we received the bill everything was correct with no quibble over discount. Good kids menu, as I was a bit nervous about taking my son. Very enjoyable, would return.

The food was delicious, we open for a couple of steaks (fillet and sirloin) both were cooked perfectly and the accompaniments also very tasty. We had a bottle of house red, barbera, which was a pretty decent house wine. Although the prices are steep, its a great restaurant worth splashing out on, we will definitely be back. I also liked the spacious layout of the restaurant in comparison to their establishment in town. Thank you very much

We were the first to arrive at 5:00 and made to feel very welcome by all staff. It was not long before this clearly popular restaurant was starting to fill up and a real buzz was created.

If you are a steak lover this is a must for you. We chose the Rump Steak with garlic butter and shared Triple cooked chips, Mushrooms and Greens. All perfect accompaniments to a delicious steak. Followed by a shared Ice cream platter.

We had a great dining experience, the service was excellent throughout and we will be back.

Great service and excellent food.
Perfectly cooked steak with well matched wine thanks to advice from staff.
Chocolate delice with salted caramel popcorn was well balanced taste and texture.
Service was excellent and as the first table we had the restaurant to ourselves for the first hour so had personal service.
Would highly recommend both app and restaurant

Great food and service. Normally very picky when it comes to steak and the 30oz t-bone we had was very very good. Would highly recommend.

I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed our experience here. Our waitress was incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome and not awkward we were the only ones in the restaurant.
The food was incredible! I highly recommened getting a slightly more expensive steak and a few sides to share. The mac and cheese is on point!

We arrived on a Tuesday evening at 5.0pm prompt and were virtually the only people in the restaurant, which wasn't an issue for us.

The waitress was friendly and efficient in producing menus and answering a couple of foodie questions, even though she was only 2 hours into her first day of the new job.

The decor is relatively rustic, informal and homely, with a menu geared very much to the carnivore.

Whilst wife and son headed in a rump rump and sirloin direction, I had mackerel pate with sourdough bread, followed by mack'n cheese, Caesar salad and triple fried chips, all of which were done well. As you'd expect in a steak restaurant the steaks, sides and accompaniments were well regarded and popular.

I found the poster in the gents extremely informative and indeed educational - 'a gentleman's guide to amputation' and consequently feel that should the need ever arise I could now do the deed with confidence....

Certainly this was a nice 'welcome home from Uni' dinner, however even with a 50% off food it certainly isn't cheap at £110 for 3 two course meals and 4 drinks. The 10% service was £15. To have sides and sauces all extra on a steak seemed a bit excessive for me, perhaps I'm getting too old!

Certainly pleased to have been to see first hand what a well regarded steak restaurant looks like and I have no hesitation in recommending The Ox to others.

P.S.No issues with the First Table Voucher and we were welcomed like 'normal' diners !!
