We enjoyed a lovely Thai meal with our friends. It was nice to see the open log fire which added to the pleasant atmosphere. Good service as always.

The pub is a lovely little place the food is always very nice it’s my first time on an afternoon and found the meal too much as a lunch maybe a smaller option would be a good idea, and a bit cheaper for a lunch time. Not faulting the food just too big a size for me on a lunch time

We love your food but felt that some of the ingredients were perhaps of lower quality than previously eg. the beef in my Blackwell Special Fried Rice was tough and grisly and the prawns appeared smaller than previously. But overall it was delicious and we will be back !
(We also recommended you to friends and they ate with you in early October and also found the lamb a bit tough).

Surprisingly different.
We have been here many times travelling from Thirsk. The food was quite bland considering they have Thai chefs. No one asked us during our meal if everything was ok. We told them of the problem when they collected our plates. We only got charged for one meal. Unfortunately we will not be rushing back to our favourite restaurant.

The green curry was far too salty and indeed was unable to even eat the meal. . We did mention it to the waiter but nothing was done about it.
Indeed all our 3 meals were very disappointing and we will not be going for meals there again even though it is fairly local to us.

We've eaten at the Blackwell ox many times and will continue to do so. Although it is some time since we last visited the The Blackwell Ox to eat inside the only change we could see was maybe the menu now has less "English" meals than we remembered. The Thai food is always very good.

Went yet again. Love the different menu choices. Service was great to order and food served quickly. Trying to get a waitress to ask to pay the bill was more difficult!
Good organisation of entrance/exit.

As I don’t like curry I chose the cod and chips and I must say the batter was the best I have ever eaten…. Congratulations to the chef.

We had a lovely Dinner, food arrived very quickly, quality of the food as fantastic as always. Young ladies who were waiting at the tables were very attentive and efficient. If you have never tried the Thai food at the Blackwell Ox it really is worth a visit. No too expensive either.
Won’t be long and we will be making a return visit.
