The Downe Arms. Wykeham

The Downe Arms, Wykeham 

 The Downe Arms is an AA 4 star country inn and restaurant.  It is part of the wonderfully historic Dawnay Estate and is a beautiful Georgian, stone building overlooking the rustic village of Wykeham.  Although we have a truly rural setting with the magnificent North Yorkshire Moors behind us, we are only 10 minutes by car from Scarborough and 15 minutes from Pickering so it is an ideal spot for that special meal- a short drive out and a fantastic meal by the fireside – what could be better?

We pride ourselves on our real Yorkshire welcome but more than that we have a team of really talented chefs headed up by Mr Stuart White who has a wealth of experience behind him and has worked in some tip-top hotels and restaurants.  Stuart has worked with his team to create a modern dining menu that has a bit a something for everyone and is sure to wow you and your guests.  Dishes range from the classic Moules Marinières to the seasonal Haunch of Venison with Blackerry Sauce.  A really popular starter is the Pheasant Terrine with Plum Compote and the Pineapple dessert with Coconut Panacotta, Pineapple Tarte Tatin, Passionfruit Compote and Pina Colada Granité is a real winner!
