Destination? The Manor Tavern, Full Service Tavern, Restaurant, Monkton, Maryland, Maryland’s Horse Country, Bringing Back the Era of Sustainability


I have a strong connection with Baltimore, Maryland.  First of all, my husband, John, was from Baltimore.  For years I worked in Downtown Baltimore, watching the Inner Harbor take place.  Baltimore has fantastic neighborhoods and awesome food.

The Maryland’s countryside is so pretty.  Rolling hills….it is also horse country.  Back in June I visited The Manor Tavern located at 15819 Old York Rd., Monkton, MD 21111.  This is northern Baltimore County.  Tel. 410-791-8155.    Website?


This is a full fledge tavern, with a property that has been in existence since 1750 when stables were located in what it is now The Manor Tavern.  If you are from Baltimore, probably, at some time or another you have attended events or have gone to lunch, dinner, or Sunday Brunch.  There are the regulars that make The Manor Tavern their watering hole.

The Manor Tavern opens 7 days a week.  Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 12:00 a.m.  Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.  Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.  And, Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m.

They told us that we needed to have the Truffle Fries….a must.  At first I said “no way”, but, they twisted my arm and I had to order them.  First things first, though

We sat outside….afterall, it was June.


On the menu we saw the Crispy Brussels Sprouts….Also a must!!  Best I have had, and I do have them anywhere they will serve them.  Tender inside, crispy outside with red salt and a tangy dipping sauce.


We ordered hamburgers.

Mine was The Manor Burger.  A classic burger for sure.  Crabstone Farms Black Angus, topped with sharp cheddar, Swiss and apple wood smoked bacon.  Medium rare for me.  Delish!!  See those fries?  They are the truffle fries..hand cut, with truffle oil, garlic, and dusted with parmessan cheese.  To die for!


The Gunpowder Bison Burger made an appearance on our table, as well.  It had roasted garlic cream cheese, arugula, apple wood smoked bacon and truffle oil.  Again, the truffle fries were ordered.


The Manor Tavern is bringing back the era of sustainability.  On their property the organic gardens were taking shape.  The gardens work year-round.  The Manor Tavern also uses local vendors and growers.

After lunch we took a walk through the gardens and this is what was growing in June.







Please note that The Manor Tavern is able to accommodate parties, graduations, weddings….you name it.  Just give them a call.

Have a great day!!
