"Our first visit to the black ox even though it's on our doorstep and I will definitely be returning on a regular basis. Myself and the wife went out for dinner for Valentine day. The flavors were out of this world, the food was better than we could have imagined, the staff were all very welcoming and friendly and they definitely made our visit feel special. Thank you all at the Black Ox"

"What an incredible evening! A friend recommended the Black Ox to us and we weren't disappointed. A very special evening. We were greeted on entry by very friendly staff who showed us to our tables in the restaurant. Our food was cooked to perfection and the red wine jus was the perfect sauce to go with it. Unfortunately we were too full for pudding but we will definitely be returning to sample one next time. Thank you all for a special evening"

"Well worth over 5 stars. Being an extremely fussy steak eater its extremely difficult to find a place that does their steak to perfection. This is one of very few places that got their steak cooked absolutely perfect. The flavoring on absolutely everything that came with it was perfect!! It was like an explosion of flavors in your mouth. This place made my valentines absolutely perfect! Thank you so much! I would highly recommend this place. The staff here are so polite, welcoming and friendly too which tops it off. Thank you to everyone who made our night so special!"
