Tucked away in a basement below The Commercial Rooms on Corn Street, The Ox is a bastion of simple, top notch, British fayre, cooked to impeccable standards.

 Situated in the heart of the Old City, you’ll find a menu packed with the choicest cuts of prime steak and tasty, meaty morsels. As a cousin of Bristol’s best cocktail bars, Hyde & Co and The Milk Thistle, you’d expect to find a fancy concoction or two, and our expert bartenders will ensure you won’t be disappointed!

The Ox has fast gained a reputation for the best steaks in the city, and once you’ve tasted one cooked in our charcoal oven we think you’ll agree!


Dinner from 5pm – 10.30pm, Monday – Saturday

Lunch from 12pm – 2.30pm,Thursday – Friday

Sunday Roasts & Bloody Mary’s every Sunday from 12pm – 4pm

Our Food

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 our Sunday Roast is one of the best in Bristol!

In keeping with our ethos of using local, seasonal produce nearly all of our meat is produced and supplied by our local butcher, Nigel Buxton. That said we’ve tasted a lot of steak in our time and we’ve found that some of the tenderest, tastiest beef comes from the other side of the Atlantic. We want you to have the best steak we can provide at the best price so you will find the odd cut from the US or South America.



Champagne Lunch Club

Take the afternoon off work on the 24th April for our exclusive lunch club where we’ll be celebrating Champagne in all it’s glory and perfectly paired with a delicious menu.
