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.

I’ve been coming to The Blackwell Ox for 12 years and the food has been consistently amazing which is very rare in the day and age.
My daughter wanted us to book for her 18th birthday meal because it’s also her favourite and they didn’t let us down.
The food is exceptional as usual and I can’t wait for our next visit very soon.
