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.
