Here at The Ox, we believe in creating exceptional food using local, seasonal produce which has been cooked to perfection by our expert chefs. And whilst steak is at the heart of everything we do, there’s a vast range of stunning small plates, classic charcuterie, superb sides and of course, delectable desserts on offer. And whilst we’re not ones to brag, word on the street is that our Sunday Roast is going to be one of the best in Clifton!

No dinner is complete unless it’s been rounded off with something sweet, sticky and indulgent. Lucky for you we have an ever-changing dessert menu, including impeccable homemade ice creams and sorbets and decadent cakes, puddings and desserts.

And for those of you without such a sweet tooth we offer an unrivalled selection of local, British and continental cheeses, house pickles, chutneys and biscuits.

We take our wine just as seriously as we take our steak, meaning our wine list is exciting, ever-evolving and offers something for all tastes.

Whether you want deep, delicious reds, light, crisp whites or something sparkling for a celebration, we work hard to ensure our wine list matches perfectly with our food and your mood.

Treat someone special to a gift voucher or package for The Ox! And the good news is that you can use the Ox’s gift vouchers also in our cocktail bars, Hyde & Co and The Milk Thistle; our speakeasy bars won’t disappoint.

(Vouchers can take up to 48 hours to arrive – don’t forget to check your spam!)
