“Superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here on a number of occasions. It is simply the best food available in the local area. Great ingredients, imaginably and beautifully cooked. Service is always exemplary. The mid week dine with wine is excellent value. The a la carte at the weekends is a great dining experience.

“Anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Old fashioned service, lovely food, well beyond expectations.
It was cold out, but the service was warm, friendly, exceptional and unassuming.
Good menu with a great deal of good presentation and attention to detail.
Runs like clockwork without you realising it.

“Simply extraordinary food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Period hotel which was obviously an important stopping-point on the old A1 now just off the very busy A1near Retford. Comfortable bedrooms, period bars and toilets needing a bit of a makeover but the FOOD -wow fantastic! Descriptions are elaborate but still barely do justice to what you are served. Wish we had more of this standard in the Midlands! Well done Markham Hotel

“Magnificent Mid-Week Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I visited this restaurant my boyfriend and we both had the two course Dine with Wine. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff and seated in the restaurant bar which has a very good range of beers / ciders (boyfriend happy) although I opted for a glass of pink Prosecco.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a fine dining feel. I ordered the chicken breast with chorizo mash and it really was outstanding. Plenty of flavour and presented in a very modern way. For dessert I had a raspberry pannacotta which had to be one of the best I've had.

We had a fantastic time and now want to try the weekend menu which we hear is excellent.

“Great Food, Great Service... Consistently!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

I recently took my dad for his birthday to Markham Moor for a meal. We loved our food, they have a great menu that appears to he regularly refreshed that always includes a pre-starter, pre-dessert and homemade breads and homemade butters which are always a delight to try!
The service is second to none, the lady who hosts is very knowledgable, helpful and makes you feel welcome! Everyone is always well turned out and service is just generally on the ball, nothing is too difficult!
Genuinely a great place to go out to, and if I'm honest I think for the standard of food that they serve they could charge more and it would still be reasonable! It is worth having their special offer that is 2/3 courses for a set price, ABSOLUTE BARGAIN! I have visited before, ill definitely be visiting again!
