Steaks and more in an atmospheric basement

Wines by the glass

Head down to the basement - a one-time bank vault - and you'll find a restaurant that the old boys of yesteryear would have admired, with its oak panels, ox blood leather seats and murals. They'd have appreciated the red-blooded menu too, for the Ox focuses on steaks (rib-eye, sirloin, rib on the bone, fillet etc.) all served with triple-cooked chips and a choice of sauce. There's a lot more besides, including trendy small plates of hickory-smoked ribs and squid salad, plus a charcuterie board to share, and alternative main courses run to fishcakes and veggie cannelloni. Finish with warm caramelised rice pudding with boozy prunes and apple compôte.
