Another fantastic lunch enjoyed by all. Just wish roast potatoes came with all your Sunday roasts as they are so delicious.

Great service from making the reservation to getting the bill. The Chateaubriand offer is good value and the food is absolutely delicious. The desserts are amazing! Next time we will choose off the a la carte menu. The drive to the Heifer is stunning and is well worth a visit.

Just perfect. Been three times recently - we should have followed up our friends' recommendations earlier. A very old pub which is stylish and up-to-date without loss of character. Really good atmosphere with brilliant staff - all friendly and very efficient. Most importantly, the food is superb - excellent menu, much produced locally and beautifully presented.

Once again a superb meal beautifully cooked and presented. The front of house staff were attentive but not so you would notice. Every year we come to the Dales and every time we visit the Heifer and have never been disappointed.

The meal was faultless. The steak was cooked to perfection as were the mushroom on celeriac puree, onion rings and chunky chips. Not to mention the homemade chocs to follow. All staff were friendly and helpful apart from a couple of lads who were a bit snooty. Will definitely be back soon.

An excellent lunch in the lovely restaurant. The oysters were superb, as were the turbot pakoras. The Hake was cooked to perfection served with fresh greens accompanied by a delightful glass of house langedoc picpoul. Service was friendly and efficient. We'll be back.

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.
