We had another incredible night last night at our favourite, local restaurant. The food was stunning, service fantastic and the wine delicious. Thank you Jon and Laura, our evening couldn't be faulted.

Head and shoulders above anything else Masham has to offer food wise- except possibly sun catchers cafe, but they're not in the same league. Vennells offers a fine dining experience and the food is delicious. Don't miss out on the home made fudge at the end of your meal!

If you are looking for great flavours and ingredients look no further than Vennells. We ate hear as part of a weekend away and this was the cherry on the icing. Husband and wife team who clearly put their heart and sole into it. Great local, seasonal ingredients…small menu which is always a good sign…prepared to a very high standard... More

Eaten here a number of times over the years and it has always been excellent. It's not cheap, but then it is fine dining and you get what you pay for here. Halibut was superb, perfectly cooked. Not a hugely extensive menu, but delicious. Service matches the quality of food. Well taken care of. Highly recommended.

Excellent meal, well presented and served. A real surprise in this rural village. We will definitely go back. It is not a cheap meal, but worth every penny for a treat.

We had a super dinner - we especially enjoyed the venison carpaccio, scallops and the salt marsh lamb rump. The attention to detail is lovely, plates beautifully presented and service very good - no rush but just the right gap between courses. Lovely limited choice of menu, but something for everyone. Not a cheap meal out but definitely worth paying... More

Loved our visit. There was a set menu for Valentines which included a seafood starter, fillet steak main and puddings to share. We took the wine flight too at £22 per person. The food was excellent in presentation and taste. Truly very high quality and worthy of the rave reviews. Wasn't keen on the white wine, but the other three... More

We've been here a few times for dinner, but this time it was Sunday lunch, as usual they didn't disappoint. Don't expect monster portions, this is sensibly served food with the emphasis on flavour. The roast beef and yorkshires was just perfect. Great staff, even the younger ones were efficient, courteous and happy, nice to see. Overall a superb Sunday... More

We visited Vennells on Saturday evening and were really pleased with the whole experience. The service from all of the waiting staff was first class and each of them took the time to make sure your expectations were being met. The food was outstanding, my wife even stating that the potato gratin with her rump of lamb was the best... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening in late January. What firstly ticked all the boxes for us was that the menu was small - 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 puddings. An acquaintance of mine, who is a chef always tells us to frequent restaurants with small menus as opposed to those with menus that require 30 minutes... More
