We have eaten at Vennell's several times and the quality and service is always excellent. The menu is well chosen and the attention to detail is impressive. It is our favourite Dales restaurant and we can't wait to return.

We visited on a Friday night and found it to be very quiet. The welcome was warm. For starter, we both had the scallops and haggis. It was cooked to perfection. Our main was fillet of sea bass. The skin was nice and crisp and...More

Vennell's is a stunning grade II listed building in the heart of Masham an area of outstanding beauty. The food is clean, unfussy and heavily influenced by the area that surrounds it. Local meat and game feature heavily, fish and shellfish from the north east coast and native lobster events in July.
