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.

    As aways, the Wensleydale Heifer was outstanding. Totally attentive but thoroughly unobtrusive, friendly, seamless service. This was our first Lunch Club meal, and the food was superb, perfectly sized portions with still room for the pudding. Thank you, it was lovely.

    Quite a pretentious eatery but with very pleasant staff. Food was nothing exceptional or even special and very much overpriced for the area. The additional surcharge idn't help.

    Outstanding from start to finish! The maitre de was friendly, enthusiastic about the menu and recommended the sharing tomahawk which was incredible!! Wish we had room for dessert. We are in the snug which was two tables near the bar and it was perfect for us, we wanted something a bit more intimate to celebrate. We’ll be back!!

    Wonderful from start to finish. Not only is the food on another level so are the front of house team. All too often places never get both quite right but the Wensleydale Heifer absolutely smashed it! The only regret was leaving it until the last night of the holiday - perusing the menu ….. we could have eaten there all week Cannot wait to return

    Unfortunately we had a very loud table of females next to us, who were very loud, and constantly using the F word There were only 5 tables in the room, and you could see that other tables were also annoyed, the manager should have had a word, but it was clear they were regular customers It certainly spoiled our experience, and also that of the other customers
