We stayed at the Wensleydale heifer for one night, the food was amazing, the room we had was impeccable and the idea of having themed rooms has us picking one for next time! All the staff, from the cleaner to the kitchen staff, reception staff were all really friendly. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them and they all had...

As always, a very enjoyable stay and restaurant experience. Food was excellent and staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We stayed in the James Bond themed room this time around - attention to detail, as always, very good with quirky themed items of interest at every turn!

Long story short, I closed my eyes for 30 minutes and my wonderful boyfriend drove us here for an anniversary gift! I was absolutely astounded as this place has really captured my heart (I've probably banged on about it a bit oops) and I was absolutely delighted he wanted to share this with me. He had booked the chocolate room,...

Had an absolutely fantastic stay. We stayed in the Chocolate Heaven room which certainly lived up to its name with Chocolate everywhere. The room was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean , and the bathroom was to die for. We had an amazing dinner , the lobster was superb. We had a good nights sleep, yes as comments on TripAdvisor mentioned...

Attention to detail was fabulous and all the staff seemed very happy to oblige - not one bad attitude! We were met by a lovely lady who took us to our Shooting room which was fabulous! The hip flask with the whisky nips in gun cartridge shot style glasses...the fun cabinet with antique guns in, the anterlers over the bed,...

Two local couples on a joint anniversary celebration. On arrival it was obvious that the restaurant and bar were extremely busy and it took at least 10 mins to get a pre dinner drink. This was taken in the bar which was being set up for a party to dine in. This created conflict for space for those having a...

Couldn't fault a thing. Room and food excellent and staff outstanding. Stayed in the Whiskey Room and enjoyed a wee dram each night to accompany the home made chocolates supplied. Ate in the restaurant both nights we were there and could not fault a thing. Breakfasts were cooked to order and were excellent. All in all a lovely place to...

We had been recommended to try this gastro pub as it seemed to the locals favourite in the dale. We booked for lunch and looked forward to it. The menu seemed to be different to your normal gastro pub choices however the actual food was just average. So we were disappointed.
