Our welcome at the Wendsleydale Heifer was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and cosy and very well equipped. The dinner we had was absolutely first rate. The signature Lobster and Steak dishes are fantastic and the wine list is extensive and you don't have to break the bank if you don't want to.. Definitely highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant. Our stay made Chris 50th birthday really memorable. The room, food and attention to detail were second to none. You totally outclass the larger chain type hotels by a mile. We would have no hesitation in recommending your establishment to friends and family and hope to return again in the near future. Thanks again. Xxx

Just returned from our 1st experience at the Heifer... From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome and shown to our room by the owner of the Inn who ensured that we had everything we needed including a shot of whisky in the hip flask in the room. Much to my partners pleasure. We had dinner... More

From the moment you pull into the car park you are made to feel welcome & your dogs (if you have some with you as they are very dog friendly). Lovely rooms, very warm, cosy & spotless. Extremely helpful staff, nothing is to much... More

The whole experience at the Heifer is exceptional. The rooms lovely and comfortable. The food choice is very good and when it arrives on your table looks lovely and the taste is better. The staff are friendly and very very helpful, nothing is too much trouble.

Another wonderful visit for a scrumptious Sunday lunch. Chose from the fixed price menu, well worth £26.95 per person for 3 courses. Food top class with attentive and friendly service. Always made to feel so welcome See you again soon, especially for the Creme Brûlée x

Greeted by a young friendly lady who guided us to where we needed to be. We were quickly seated at our table which was in the fish bar - spacious & decorated tastefully. I struggled to pick from the menu - I wanted it all! The amuse bouche was yummy (salmon mouse) & the warm bread with tomato & herb... More

We booked in for a midweek stay and dine which we'd been given as a gift. We arrived a little early and had lunch in the snug before we checked in (the fat chips are the nicest ever!) We were then taken to the Heifer room and after being shown how everything worked we were left to settle in. The... More
