The Priory Tea Room – Middleham



The Priory Tea Room has become a staple fixture for locals, tourists, cyclists and walkers.  The owners Chris and Sarah offer hot and cold sandwiches, classics like beans on toast, seasonal soups and a selection of homemade (often gluten free) cakes.

When the weather is nice this is the perfect place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Middleham is a race horse training centre so if you are there before midday you’re likely to see countless race horses heading out to the local gallops to train.

The Priory Tea Room is part of the boutique Priory B&B, so this is a great place to travel to and stay at if you’re not from the area. If you do base yourself in Middleham you are in for a real treat in terms of riding. The roads are quiet and hilly – particularly to the west where you’ll find numerous Top 100 climbs.
