We went to the wensleydale heifer to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist who took us to our room we would be sleeping in. It was The James Bond Themed Room. I personally would recommend this room for all budding 007 fans although my wife secretly preferred the Chocolate themed room....maybe next time my... More

Took my daughter here as a birthday treat for the early bird menu. We were seated in the bar area as we the brought the dog with us. This was fine apart from a lot of people standing at the bar right next to our table to order drinks, which was a bit off putting. We also felt slightly overlooked... More

Outstanding first visit so the second one had a lot to live up to as our expectations were high. It didn't disappoint. Just hubby & I went early tea time. It was nice & quiet & we were seated straight away. Lots of choice to order from. Warm bread & canapé of goat cheese & tomato mouse started things off... More

My partner took me to the Wensleydale Heifer to celebrate our engagement. I'd never been before but had heard nothing but good things. I wasn't disappointed: When we first got in we had to wait for our table and the manageress (I assume she was the manageress). was most apologetic that we didn't have anywhere to sit while we waited...

We had a lovely evening at the Wensleydale Heifer. The food was amazing, particularly the hake and scallop pakora starter, and the staff were really accommodating of our six year old son, who asked for some minor adaptations to his choices from the excellent childrens' menu. For him the crispy prawns were the biggest hit of the night!

Absolutely fabulous roast dinner! The best way to spend Easter Sunday I could possibly think of! The spicy squid was a highlight and the beef was so tender!

Been coming here for a few years now and this place never lets us down. Some of best value and tastiest food you can have for the money. The staff are very well trained and this place runs smoothly. I'd say this is largely down to a Scottish lady (sorry I don't know her name) who I think is some... More

Description
Situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Wensleydale Heifer may be within easy reach of the A1 and M6 but it still feels totally rural. A traditional white-washed inn complete with leaded lights and swinging sign, The Wensleydale Heifer gives the visitor a real flavour of Britain meaning it���s popular not only with locals but with tourists searching for the real Yorkshire. From the lounge, with its comfortable leather settees, country pursuit paintings and imposing fireplace through to the wicker seating, beamed ceilings and eau de nil painted walls, the interior could have leapt from the pages of Country Homes magazine. The contemporary British menu includes seaood from across Britain plus locally sourced meat and veg, all prepared using the Wensleydale Heifer philosophy ��� keep it simple.
