Food was great ! Steak cooked perfectly. I was situated in front of the speaker which the waitress turned down after a bit. Made it had to head the girlfriend which isn’t alway a bad thing... large group were pretty loud but that can’t be helped it is a restaurant after all. Overall my experience was good served quickly and food was brilliant. Desserts wasn’t to my taste. But I would go again. The girlfriend liked it so that’s the important thing.

We had an exceptional meal & service on our visit to The Ox prior to a night at the theatre. The Bone Marrow starter was delicious and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning in the future.

Loved the food and the service was great. Great selection of beers and the best non-alcoholic ginger beer I've tasted! Thanks for a delicious lunch! Would recommend the butter comes with the steak as it looked a bit bare on the plate.

I have been to this restaurant many times, always for the early bird deal. However this time was different, I had received some vouchers for my birthday so decided to treat myself and my boyfriend to the T-bone sharing meal. For £72 (not including drinks) I was expecting something pretty special. The first thing that surprised me was that you could only select one sauce. Being a meal for two I would expect to have the option of selecting two different sauces. My boyfriend and I like different sauces so we had to pay for the additional one. The second thing that surprised me was the portion size, I felt that the chips and greens were very stingy. The food all tasted great but we both felt like it was very poor value and did not feel special. We would have been just as satisfied with the early bird meal and would have saved ourselves £45. We also felt very uncomfortable with the service charge being automatically added to the bill. I understand this is optional but customers are made to feel awkward having to ask for it to be taken off. Our waiter began typing in the cost including the service charge to the card machine without asking us how much we want to pay. That doesn’t feel very optional to me. I would certainly recommend The Ox to friends for the early bird deal but I’m afraid it would stop there. Based on our experience I wouldn’t be willing to spend the extra money for something else.

Fantastic food. Had a pre cocktail at Milk thistle (once we realised it is a hidden bar and you need to ring the buzzer). Worth the trip from Cornwall for that steak and sprout side alone!

We went for a pre-theatre meal, aiming to take advantage of the excellent value set menu. However, delicious starters and desserts meant we ended up taking a full meal after all!

Thank you to everyone at the Ox, for what can only be described as the best Sunday lunch ever. The Scollops were to die for but, the Sharing Roast was to kill for. Beautiful deserts all washed down with wonderful wine. Amazing

The guy who I think is the Manager always has flawless service. And the food is always consistently of a high quality and taste. Would highly recommend this place to eat and also enjoy cocktails.

We had the 'early bird' menu, with add-ons, and it was delicious. The atmosphere was cosy and comfortable, not too noisy, and nice soft lighting.

It was a celebration for my husband’s birthday. It’s a bit unusual the restaurant is in a basement, but the atmosphere was great and the food was lovely! It’s really worth to visit and I will recommend it to anyone if you want a treat.

Disappointing given the price tag. The scallops smelt fishy and we had to send one portion back to the kitchen. The wine was nice but excessively priced. For such a simple concept at this price everything has to be fresh and cooked to perfection and unfortunately on this occasion it wasn't. shame.

The meat was slightly over what we both wanted, however the flavor of both steaks was great. The sauces lacked body especially the peppercorn sauce. Researching the restaurant people had complemented the wine list, which I found to be lacking slightly. Service great though, especially on New Year’s Eve, so thank you to the servers and the chefs.
