Been meaning to review this excellent bistro for ages, but perhaps I was trying to keep it a secret! Guy and his team are excellent and the food always delicious and imaginative - definitely worth visiting and returning to!

We asked Fairhursts to cater for a family celebration. The food was superb! The Luxury Lunch Buffet had fantastic choice and the quality of both the food and the presentation was excellent. The food was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and we had a wide age range from under 18's to over 80's. Delivered exactly when they said, and it was... More

We used Fairhursts for a hog roast at our wedding at Bolton Castle. Guy was very personable and his suggestions were excellent. Guests commented that the canapés were really good and the hog roast with vegetarian and even vegan options was excellent quality. Everything was cooked to perfection and all guests including coeliacs and those with nut allergy were catered... More

I have not actually eaten at Fairhursts Bistro, however, we hired their catering services while staying nearby at Middleham House. Guy cooked for our Hen Party of 20 women, and his waitress, Lorna, served our three course meal. The service was excellent and the quality of the food was spot on. Both Guy and Lorna were very professional, while friendly,... More

We wanted something a bit special from the usual pub fare & this was perfect. The food was tasty & well presented, staff made us very welcome & lovely to have tap water bought to the table as standard rather than having to ask. We will be recommending it to friends & relatives

Their is ample parking to the rear, which for Middleham is an advantage. We was met at the door by welcoming staff. The restaurant was clean with a nice atmosphere. The down side unfortunately was a very limited menu (ie choice of 4 starters and mains plus 2 specials) By the time the ONE serving waitress came to us one... More

We recently held our daughters 18th family birthday party at the bistro. Guy offered us various themed menus, in which we chose an American diner style, 2 course buffet. The food was amazing and exceeded expectations. All our guests ranging from 15-70 years of age thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Guy and Lorna (our waitress) were both great and helped make... More

Stayed in Middleham and Fairhursts Bistro was recommended by the owners of Waterford House. Lovely food and very well presented. Stylish and creative. Only a very short distance off the main square in Middleham. Definitely worth a visit. You will be impressed
