The Durham Ox (Shrewley Common) Reviews
Newest Review: ... but it is at the bottom of the beer spectrum and for such a "classy" place, I would have expected at least a Peroni or Staropramen, but none, not even out of a bottle. If you go to The Durham Ox and want a premium lager, you're out of luck. My partner had booked a table so suggested we open a tab. The barman took her credit card and went to serve the next customer. She then asked for her credit card back and was replied it was their policy to keep hold of credit cards until the customers were ready to leave. I have been to many places in my time and a lot worse than The Durham Ox but I have never been expected to leave my cred... more

My partner and I were very much looking forward to an enjoyable evening at well renowned Durham Ox at Shrewley. It was our first time as last year when we were in the area it was closed for a private function. The first disappointment was that on a hot summer's night when a cool glass of lager was needed, the only choice they had was Carling (Extra Cold). Now I've nothing against Carling but it is at the bottom of the beer spectrum and for such a "classy" place, I would have expected at least a Peroni or Staropramen, but none, not even out of a bottle.

Reading the reviews, it makes me wonder if the others were talking abou the same place or if their expectations were too high, and I believe the latter to be true. Yes, it's a little pricey, but anyone walking into the Durham Ox is unlikely to mistake it for a Harverter or McDonalds. It is child friendly for well-behaved children, and bravo for them telling parents to keep their brats under control at a nice restaurant, not allowing them to scream and run riot, disturbing ever other considerate diner paying good money for a nice experience. If you can't keep your brats under control and sitting down to eat properly, take them to Pizza Hut. Better yet, stay home until .. Read the complete review

Staff very unhelpful and very abrupt.Waiting time 1 hour and that was just for starters and there were only four other parties dining,Main meal steak minute was not even edible .. dinner untouched, when plates were collected by waitress I informed her of this, she said she would tell the chef, that was the last I heard no apology, no complimentary drink nothing, Cutlery was dirty.Didn't bother to complain again as staff were just not Interested so I waited til I came home and sent them an email. I STILL AWAIT THEIR REPLY TWO WEEKS LATER ........... not even an acknowledgement.

Having frequented this establishmend several times over a few years, I can say without doubt that the food is very good and you can't beat the cheese board. However why is it they can't provide such a good booking service. TWICE (once last Thursday now I have arrived and they had no record of our booking. Very embarrasing if you are taking guests. Yes they sorted it out, but it does spoil the evening regardless.

I went to the Durham Ox on Saturday using a Groupon promotion shown above. We were shown to our seats and I asked if we could move to a better table. "No problem Sir" was the reply. Big, posh menus were duly issued. When the waiter returned I said "I did mention when I booked the reservation that we have a Groupon Deal - do I have to let you know before ordering?" "Oh" he replied, "you can't have these menus". He returned with a 'Groupon special' menu which was an A4 sheet of paper. He also asked us to move to another table as they had strict seating policy (presumably for Groupon customers). The food was ... Read the complete review
