BIG PETE
SOCIALITE
When Andrew WK wrote his spine-tingling classic hits 'Party Hard' and the unforgettable 'We Want Fun', he not only had me in mind, but quite clearly the Durham Ox in Leicester! I was known as the Ambassador of Fun among my Norwich massive, but now, and even though it pains me to say it, I think that title lies with the Landlord of the Ox.

Bread-tastic!
One night i was just LOAFING around the house, because i had no DOUGH, so my CRUSTy mate Nickeh Ward brought me to the Ox for some YEAST based drinks! What a place, full of top-notch CRUMPET that i wouldn't mind taking my FRENCH STICK to!

BIG GAY AL
Complaint
I am bereft with grief and disappointment. The Durham Ox in my view has lost its title as BEST GAY BAR 2004. It has become a hot bed of love for those breeders and I just dont like it. Gone are the free tubes of lube with every 'sex on the beach' cocktail and the annual Sing and dance like STEPS competition has been cancelled due to the vigorous dance moves of the contestants being mistaken for threats of violence towards the heteros. Don't they know a double back slide with air punch to the front when they see one? I am deeply saddened at the retirement of my size 43 leotards.

live, love, laugh!
I recently got married to my long-term lover from Gilbert Murray Halls,Trogg, and we had our reception at the Durham Ox. They laid on a fantastic spread! We were treated to a sumptuous 3 course meal of Turkey a la king to start, Cannelloni Verde as the main course, and Vienetta or a cornetto for dessert. They even threw in free Lambrusco Rosso for all two tables! Not even the arrival of my old flame ellen could have spoiled this magical day! Thank you Durahm Ox!

My partner and I celebrated our civil ceremony at the Durham Ox recently.The buffet was excellent with more cheese and pineapple than I could eat and a variety of sweets. My partner even commented on how much fudge we packed in that night! I will definitely be frequenting this tavern again xx ps. Jabba-love you sweetie

tinned meat and romance
I didn't think anything could distract me from my love of tinned meat until I went to this joint! I normally sit on granby street opening corned beef with a key on a friday night until I discovered the variety of 'beefy' men at the Ox.I am now the proud lover of three men I met there: Dev, Big Pete and Big Ol Chilli. OXtastic!

WORCESTER SAUCE
I won the talent show at the Ox last may with my awesome Les Dennis routine-i pretty much stole the show! However, when I asked for a shot of worcester sauce to help with my stage fright, all they had was Soy Sauce-any showbiz entertainer knows that undiluted orange squash and worcester sauce are the only cures for stage fright! Aside from that, it is a quality establishment, and I have had many a rip-roaring night there!!

MY ROSE HAS LEFT ME
The Durham Ox is the place where all your dreams come true. I thought i found true love at the Ox last week...I couldn't resist this great hunk of spunk, who was throwing out Axel Rose moves on the dancefloor to the sounds of David Essex and Shakin' Stevens. We spent the whole night drinking advocat and Black Tower and talking about how Byker Grove hasn't been the same since Geoff died. But I haven't heard from him since. Nicholas Winterton, if you read this, call me...please!

Looking for Lothario
What an outstanding establishment! Got so blotto on the vintage sherrys that I didn't even have the chance to sample the fine wines and pickled eggs selection! p.s. Pat, why haven't you called me, we had such a great night.

BEAUTIFUL WOMEN
I haven't had so much fun since watching my hero Val Kilmer in Willow. Not since The Spread Eagle has Leicester had such a sexy environment to dance the night away to Foreigner, Mike and the Mechanics and Fragma. This pub contains the highest class of women this side of Eyres Monsell. Buena Vista mi amore.

LIVING THE DREAM
Im not really one to go out. At weekends, I mostly enjoy sitting in, watching my Hale and Pace box sets back-to-back. But one night, my best mate jane persuaded me to go to what she described as 'the mother of all bars'! And I am so glad she did! The night I spent at the 'Ox' has made me reevaluate my life. I haven't watched a single episode of Hale and Pace for nearly three weeks now, because i spend all my free time dancing the night away at the 'Ox' to the sounds of Whigfield and Haddaway. I am living the dream!

TOTALLY AMAZING
What can i say about the Durham Ox? I had the best night of my life night there! Usually I go to The Hind or The Wyvern,or just out and about in Glen Parva, but the 'Ox' is definitely my new haunt! They have a HUGE variety of drinks, and on friday nights there is a wicked DJ, who plays up-to-the-minute music, like Peter Andre and Steps.
