We visited this establishment last Monday for lunch.
Friendly greeting from a member of staff. We were quite hungry as it was already 1.30 p.m. We both scrutinised the menu and both decided on Fish & Chips. When it arrived we were both shocked at the size of the fish and the excellent presentation. ( We were told the fish was by no means what they considered large) Although we both enjoy our food it was too much for us and regrettably we had to leave some on the plate. This was an injustice to the chef as the meal was delicious. Leaving ourselves a little time for our stomach's to recover we looked at the dessert menu. My wife chose the "Lemon selection" consisting of 4 different types of sweet on one plate. I went for the "Raspberry Cheesecake". The presentation of both dishes was amazing. (5 Star) Michelin standard.
The meal was excellent, the service was excellent. Not the cheapest place to eat but now and again treat yourself and be assured of an excellent meal at this establishment.

What can I say the food is gorgeous . There are 2 areas the fish bar and the main restaurant but both serve the same menu, so it made me laugh when someone complained that they had booked the main restaurant and didn't want to eat in the fish bar????. The fish bar is not as swanky and the main restaurant but who cares when you are eating food not the decor.

Visited for a lovely lunch while on holiday in Yorkshire. Have been to the Wesleydale Heifer on a number of occasion before. So too stayed at this lovely hotel. Glorious quirky rooms very comfortable As always food was delicious, staff excellent and a most enjoyable afternoon. The fish was excellent can't recommend the Seafood Pie enough . Was delighted to find an un-oaked Chardonnay from Franshoek on the very quirky and highly entertaining wine list well worth a read. Do go out of your way to find this gemstone.

Stopped here for lunch on the way home from the dales to Sheffield. Hadn't booked but not a problem. Both had sandwich and chips with the intention of having a pud but, due to the deliciousness of the main course we were too full! Lovely friendly staff, brilliant food and basked in the march sunshine. This is what a breaks about.

Had a tremendous evening meal, our starters of posh prawn cocktail, followed by Irish oysters, then whole Dover sole and a trio of lobster were excellent. Not cheap, about £110 incl tips and a bottle of wine, but well worth it for that special occasion.
