Came here for an evening meal. Lovely little place with great atmosphere. Food was fantastic, I had calimari for starters and it was the softest I have ever had. Fish and chips for main were also great. I can't say enough good things about the food and tge place.

Wonderful food, great service and the wine that was recommended to us was the perfect choice. Excellent Lobster and Steak menu although many other very appealing choices. We have never spent so long toying with the choices on a menu!

Just enjoyed a 3 course Sunday lunch. Warm welcome and although our table in the restaurant wasn't quite ready we were shown to a table in the bar and given drinks and food menu to ponder over. Wasn't too much of a delay before being shown to our table in the restaurant. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal,... More

The service is friendly and very efficient. The decor in the dining room is lovely, subtle and elegant with great original artworks. The cosy welcome lounge/bar with its fireplace is a great place to enjoy pre or post dinner drinks.

We ate here after reading such great reviews and weren't disappointed. We had cocktails in the lounge on arrival and placed our order, one steak and one surf & turf. When the food arrived it was delicious, the staff were very helpful and friendly.

We dined a la carte on our visit in the evening, overall the menu was good and the food was excellent. However we returned for lunch within a few days and the menu was limited and the food was not exceptional, just acceptable pub food. Please note a service charge of 10% id included in each bill without being advised... 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.
