“New menu at bistro”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was our fifth visit! New menu had good choice, sea bass was fabulous. Has never failed to impress. Fresh food beautifully presented, home made breads, service excellent. Themed evenings are unbelievable value with no loss of quality or service. We'll definitely be going back.

“Superb food, excellent value”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Fairhursts was recommended to us on our recent stay in Middleham, and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing, beautifully presented and there was a good choice for each course. Our meal was complimented by a fine bottle of Rioja. The service and hospitality were excellent. All in all a wonderful evening, and we would highly recommend Fairhursts to anyone staying in Middleham or nearby.

“Interesting food, brilliantly cooked”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We were taken here by our friends and treated to a wonderful meal - the food was excellent, beautifully presented and served with friendly but professional service. Although we didn't pay (!) the bill seemed to be very reasonable considering the high quality of the meal.

“Great food at a great price”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I had planned to have Guy cater for a small birthday party while staying in Middleham recently. He had no difficulty with us changing the arrangement at short notice to dinner at the Bistro, which turned out to be a themed evening for the Richard III weekend.

The food was fresh, delicious and perfectly cooked and came with a complimentary glass of mead (also delicious). The ladies who waited on us for the evening were also charming and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. In overall terms, I would rate it one of the best meals that I had during my visit to the UK - which included dinner at a michelin starred and celebrity chef restaurant.

I recommend the restaurant and wish Guy and his team all the best.

“Amazing Discovery”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Whilst on holiday last week in Middleham and looking for somewhere nice to eat, we came upon a notice on the gates of Chris Fairhurst's stableyard, advising of a new Bistro in the Key Centre recently opened by his nephew, Guy. Having been rather disappointed with the food on offer elsewhere in Middleham, we were keen to give this new Bistro a try and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was amazing, the atmosphere very convivial and the lovely Francesca who waited on us all evening was so welcoming. We would have no hesitation in recommending this gorgeous new restaurant to anyone; they will not be disappointed. First Class food and service!
