We loved our dinner - it was outstanding. Unfortunately we did not have the information on the map that says it's in the basement. Between that and the scaffolding we walked by 4 times before we asked someone who could tell us where it was. We did see the menu outside but it didn't say The Ox and we weren't smart enough to figure out the picture. We would definitely be back often if we lived closer than Augusta, GA, USA!

I have been to the Ox many times, your steaks are amazing, I just felt that the meal was a little off point my scallop start was boring. I used to say that the Ox is the best steak restaurant outside of London, however, recently I have been to pasture and cowshed and the experience was better, plus they didn’t charge me 10% service for bringing my food over. Now I have tried the competitions I’m not sure I’ll be rushing back.

We were celebrating a birthday and enjoyed the ambience of the pleasant surroundings, but I have had better steak, my companion agreed. The Caesar salad was great, other accompanying dishes were good although I expected triple cooked chips would be crispier. Service was a little overpowering but wine knowledge was appreciated.

Really lovely atmosphere, cosy and dimly lit. Service was attentive, timely and friendly. Really great value for money with their early evening deal. Had a lovely evening!

An amazing steak and amazing mac and cheese ( a must try if you dine here) I just wish the steak knifes were sharper, I would have no other complaints!

To be honest, the Steak was very tough, to a point, even the Laguiole steak knife couldn't cut it. We thought our order was for a T bone, as we brought it to the attention of your staff, but apparently, we order 30 oz Rib Steak, as it is part of the set meal. The Staff & the starters can't be faulted, actually better than excellent. We were not very sure of the burnt white chocolate ice cream, same for the lemon meringue pie ice cream. In contrast, the Milk Chocolate honeycomb was spot on & very luxuries.

As always The Ox was a fantastic evening. The steaks here are beautifully cooked and the mac and cheese is to die for! I tried their own espresso martini and it was delicious, with a hint of orange. Service is always great and their a really friendly team. Love coming here and will be back soon.

I’ve heard so much about your restaurant and was really looking forward to it. I kind of felt it was a bit average and the price point was wrong. The steak was cooked well but lacked seasoning. The triple cooked chips did not look appealing and were not very crisp. The Mac and cheese was very good, as were the leeks and greens. Maybe it was an off night and I was just unlucky. So many other good reviews must mean you are doing something right, it just wasn’t for me.

The dining experience was good but the room is very dark, having to use the candle light to see how my steak was cooked. Meal was comparatively expensive to other restaurants for similar quality. And we were also overcharged as the '10% discretionary service charge' (which I am totally against anyway, if I feel like tipping I will tip, but if you want an extra 10%, put the prices up..) was applied before a voucher we used, so was more like 15%
