With a reputation for some of the best steak in Cheltenham, The Ox is an institution in the town’s thriving food scene, bringing you the best local, seasonal produce cooked to exceptional standards in beautiful surroundings as well as on our stunning outdoor terrace.

Our menu comprises prime cuts of steak, all cooked to perfection in the famous Josper oven, beautiful small plates, delectable desserts and one of the best Sunday roasts in town, as well as a delicious selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. As a cousin to Bristol’s famous Hyde and Co and The Milk Thistle cocktail bars, diners can also expect an impressive array of expertly crafted cocktails, wine and local beer and ales.

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re re-opening in line with Government guidelines and in adherence to our covid manifesto outdoors from Tuesday 13th April and will be opening indoors in line with Government guidelines as soon as we can.

Tuesday – Saturday 12pm-9pm. All day dining
Sunday 12pm – 6pm

We are a neighbourhood family restaurant and perfect for any occasion whether that’s quick mid-week bite to eat, after work drink or a celebration meal.

We believe in creating exceptional food cooked to perfection by our expert chefs. Steak is at the heart of everything we do, as is our commitment to using local and seasonal produce wherever possible.

We’ve slimmed down the menu to go with our slimmed down restaurant. We are now serving a series of set menus incorporating many of our favourite Ox dishes to ensure we are able to run efficiently within the new guidelines. Hopefully we’ll be back to our normal capacity and full menu before too long! 

We’re also very excited to announce we’re now offering a new delivery service of our signature cocktails, wines, beers, spirits & prepare at home meal kits for you to enjoy at home.

Every Friday we will be delivering to the following locations in Cheltenham, Gloucester & Stroud. Below are our delivery postcodes –

GL1 to GL6, GL9, GL10, GL11, GL12, GL13, GL50, GL51, GL52, GL53

We aim to deliver all of our orders between 1pm and 4pm.

Whist we are temporarily closed due to the latest government restrictions, you can still treat that someone special to a gift voucher or package from The Ox Cheltenham!

Perfect for any occasion and vouchers can be delivered via email or as a gift card in the post.

We take our wine just as seriously as we take our steak, meaning our wine list is exciting, ever-evolving and offers something for all tastes.

Whether you want deep, delicious reds, light, crisp whites or something sparkling for a celebration, we work hard to ensure our wine list matches perfectly with our food and your mood.
