The Markham Moor Inn is situated in what looks like a service area just off the A1M, but don't be fooled, this is no typical roadside pub. The 400 year old Inn is well cared for and has been extended over the years to provide formal dining rooms at the rear, equally good for a romantic dinner for two or... More

Came to the find dining on friday evening with daughter and husband. The ambience of the place is lovely we have been before on a few occasions. The food was outstanding, the freebies inbetween courses were delicious! We could not fault the whole experience, presentation of the foods was also outstanding. We had different meals, and all courses were enjoyable.

Tried a lunch time visit rather than our usual evening dinner. Quieter with limited service owing to one person trying to satisfy bar and food customers. Food continues to be of a high standard and good value

Nice menu mid week with wine. Changed every month but sometimes takes abit of understanding you have to ask Nick the waiter what it is.
