We have been to this lovely restaurant recently. The food and the service were so excellent, which was out of our expectation. the crab was very fresh and soft and the steak was just beautiful. The staff were very friendly. From outside the building we knew it has long history, and we were told it has been there over 100 years. Wow! trust me it is worth visiting again

Another lovely lunchtime experience at The Heifer today.
As usual, we had the choice of all three menus - a la carte, set lunch or snack menus.
All three offer well-designed and interesting choices, and making a decision, therefore, is not particularly easy. The only advice that I can give is that you work your way through all three menus over a period of time (it will take months or even years, but what a joy!).
Today, we were welcomed and cared for by professional, courteous and friendly staff, who advised us on our choices and demonstrated an interest in the customer and an enthusiasm for the product they were selling.
We eventually chose a lovely sharing platter which started with home made bread and dipping oils, and smoked haddock chowder, and was followed by oysters, crab, chicken liver parfait, gravadlax, duck spring rolls, huge crispy prawns and goat cheese fritters amongst other things, all accompanied by truffle butter and delicious sauces.
The platter provided an interesting taste experience and we thought we did very well to almost get through it.
Too full for dessert, we had coffe and drinks in the lounge up to a roaring fire.
Staff, food and ambience combine to make a very pleasant lunchtime experience.

We visited the Heifer on Saturday 20th October, our second visit, the hotel has themed rooms we chose the True Romantics ok if you like pink but beautiful none the less. The hotel is in a stunning location a quiet village close to Aysgarth Falls and you can see Castle Bolton across the valley. The Restaurant specialises in fish but there is plenty of choice for meat eaters. I had Fish Pie with Lobster (extra for this but worth it) got to say it was amazing. The others had steak, lobster salad and hake all beautiful dishes. We shared two sweet selections a taste of all the pudding menu! Once again fantastic.It is very good value for the rooms, food and wine. Will be going again!
Make sure you turn left out of the car park on the road to Bedale and you will discover an old fashioned candle maker apx 2 miles from the Heifer, a hidden gem and well worth a visit.

Delicious food with a more gourmet touch. The presentation was excellent even the fish and chips and tasted as good as it looked.The service was good and the atmosphere cosy in a pub with character. Beware you need to book, it is very popular.
