Why we love it

The Ox Steak and cocktail joint, hidden under the Commercial Rooms on Corn Street: legendary. The Ox is a bastion of simple, top notch, British fayre, cooked to impeccable standards. You’ll find a menu packed with the choicest cuts of prime steak and tasty, meaty morsels. Expect a thick-cut steak which has been worked-on to extract as much flavour from it as possible – rich with caramelised crust and textured with tender, melting meat in the middle. They take wine just as seriously as they take their steak, meaning the wine list is exciting, ever-evolving and offering something for all tastes. Whether you want deep, delicious reds, light, crisp whites or something sparkling for a celebration, The Ox works hard to ensure that your tipple perfectly matches your food and your mood.

Delicious steak as always - the Josper oven works wonders!


Fantastic food, great service & lovely ambience.


Great value for a place I’d be more than happy to go back to and a meal I’d readily eat again. Would highly recommend the creme brûlée as a way to finish the meal if like me you’ve got a sweet tooth.


The food is always superb here and worth the extra money you pay than for some other steak/roast/brunch meals out. Service is always great and staff are attentive.


It’s not difficult to ask for and get steak cooked rare. I like mine well done- apologies- to chefs everywhere- and that was what I got. Perfect tender and tasty.


Very good steak and attentive staff. Wine choice was good and house was delicious.
