We visited the Heifer for my birthday after having it recommended, the food was amazing and the staff superb. As it was my birthday, they had placed a teddy and a card together with a balloon on the table, it's the little things that matter and it was a lovely touch. The pub is cosy and snug and we would definitely return. Highly recommend to anyone for a special occasion.

This was our second visit to the Heifer. This time we visited with my sister and her husband. It is the extra special little touches you get that make this place so good. Fruit in the rooms, Molton Brown toiletries, both sparkling and still water and of course each room has it own special treat! From walking through the door we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff. We had a perfect night. Thank you very much

Second visit to the Heifer. This visit was a joy from start to finish had a super delux room (Chocolate Room) more or less as much chocolate as you can possibly eat stashed in drawers around the room and over sized champagne goblets filled with heros/celebrations/quality street which were stood on the cabinet tops. Bliss. Power shower ,bathrobes, thick fluffy towels, TV over Jaccuzzi bath even a cafetier plus home made flapjacks.
Weather was super, Yorkshire is truly gods country when the sun is shining.
Dinner, superb 5 course fish fixed menu, truly complements to the chefs.
Waiting staff were a joy, praise where praise is due.
Excellent Yorkshire breakfast.(but a vast array of other options are available)
Will we be back . YOU BET!!!

Had the privilege of staying and dining here to celebrate my birthday. We stayed in the champagne room which was amazing with a fabulous bath tub. Tons of lovely touches, cake, fruit, bottled water, tea & coffee and of course a fridge stocked with champers.
The food was amazing-one of the best steaks I've eaten. And of course excellent service. All the staff were very polite and welcoming they really make your stay special.
Thanks again Wensleydale Heifer! Can't wait to return........very soon hopefully.

Took my husband here for his birthday. I was very much looking forward to it. We were made welcome from the start. This is somewhere to stay if you want service, you are made to feel special nothing is too much trouble & the extra little touches make a big difference. The food was very good. We shall return.
