We came here for our works Christmas do and considering that The Ox was catering for 20 of us and a full restaurant it was brilliant. Fast service, hot food and a lovely atmosphere.

Was told by friends this restaurant served a decent steak but we were not impressed. I think we could have got a lot better steak at a better price. My rib eye was quite chewy and over fatty. It tasted nice but I have had...More

I wouldn't recommend this as a restaurant for children. I'm not sure whether they specifically exclude kids, but I would chose somewhere else to go with my tribe. Still an A++ 5* for the grown ups though!
