Now that's the sort of headline that I want to read!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. I am so pleased that you had a nice stay with us.

I have to say the Tomohawk steak is one of the best steaks that we get. It is aged for 60 days in a salt cave which adds to the tenderness and to the flavour. I know that our butcher is an avid reader of his customers Trip Advisor pages and he will be delighted to read it.

Thank you again and we all look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

The Chocolate Heaven room was very modern with a luxury bath/shower room & lots of treats. The Hotel is well situated for touring the Dales,Harogate, Ripon Etc. As a converted Inn, with log fires in the snug it proves to be very relaxing, the friendly staff add to this.

Room Tip: The 4 new rooms are on the road but well insulated

Thank you for your 5 star review of the Heifer.

I am delighted that you had a nice time and enjoyed the Chocolate Heaven room - we are currently in talks with the local chocolate factory in Leyburn to offer a complimentary tour with a glass of fizz which will make the chocolate room experience even more chocolaty!

Thank you again for visiting us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

We booked a table on a recommendation from a Bainbridge local, and boy, was it worth it. It's a lovely environment and the food was extremely good. There is a specialisation in fish, but various meats are also available. The starters were imaginative, and if you've still got room, the deserts are absolutely delicious. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: We did not stay here, only eat.
