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.

High quality food at reasonable prices, though a slight shame that the Wriggle offer is actually available in the restaurant without the need for Wriggle.


DELICIOUS! Love this place, great food and great staff, would definitely recommend and will be back.


Really lovely restaurant, good atmosphere!


Very intimate place where you can enjoy delicious food.


Really nice atmosphere and the starters were amazing as well as beautiful tender steaks


On a hot and clammy summers day it was a relief to enter the cool and alluring basement restaurant. The steak, chips, sauce and wine were all delicious and very well cooked. I would go back for sure!
