This time we booked in for the April overnight special for our anniversary which was in the Whisky bedroom with dinner and the usual lovely Yorkshire breakfast. Good food and excellent service throughout. I was silly enough to leave some clothes in...

We stayed in the Malt Whisky room which is spacious and very comfortable, as was the bed. The food was superb. On our last visit my husband had...

Excellent We visited the Heffer 35 years ago, the standard then was as now excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and looked after our every need. The location is ideal for visiting the Yorkshire Dals and the beautiful local villages and countryside.

Proper coffee made in a coffee pot, cake and sherry for a pre dinner drink all included. Large bathroom with a spa bath which was just the job after a days walking exploring the surrounding countryside. Dinner was superb! My husband...

What a fantastic place to stay and eat! We stayed the evening of Good Friday in the Black Sheep room.. arrival and check in was nice and easy and we were shown straight up to our room – the photos on the website don’t do it justice, it’s such a spacious room and the little touches like the bottle of...

Visited last night on the recommendation of friends as staying in the area and wow the food was amazing. We booked the early bird menu which allowed you a £15 supplement towards the various steaks which was a great option from the complementary warm bread and smoked salmon appetiser, through the starter, mains and deserts we could not fault anything...

Simpson and I were staying in the area and came her for a meal after a recommendation. The car park is small and was very full, frustrating but also a good sign. We parked not far away on the kerb.
