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.

Never been here for nearly 2 years ,it is still a first class restaurant,serving Thai food at its best.There seems to be much more choices of non Thai meals,which was very welcome as my wife does not eat Thai food. A brilliant night at the Blackwell ox

Everything excellent as always, the only criticism I would say was the young lad behind the bar needs a bit of customer service training, he was more intrested having a joke with the bar maids than seeing to the customers. Apart from that, Everything was excellent

Our first visit and we will definitely be back!
Booked for a table of 8 for a Birthday Celebration.
Staff were very attentive and helpful. Service was quick and the food was piping hot and delicious. Portions were very generous especially the Tempura Prawns and the Thai Green Curry was one of the tastiest I have had.
We couldn’t finish all our food - not a problem as the Staff offered to parcel in takeaway boxes for us.
Will definitely return.

It was a last minute booking after not managing to visit over Covid. Due to limited availability on the app. we booked two tables (6+4) as 10 of us on ‘Open Table’. I then rang and asked if tables could be placed together. This has already been done! They also let me add a ‘plus 1’. Excellent service!

We were late ordering due to late arrivals but nothing was a problem to the staff. Starters arrived within 5 minutes. Good plentiful and delicious! It was not even a problem splitting the bill at the end of the night.

Definately will be be returning! Keep up the good work!
