Tripadvisor Award - Best of the Best

The Wensleydale Heifer is officially one of the UK's best fine-dining restaurants!

We are excited to share that TripAdvisor has named us one of the UK's best fine dining restaurants! We are absolutely thrilled to have been placed in the top ten in their prestigious Traveller's Choice Best of the Best Awards 2020.

Every year TripAdvisor pulls together all the reviews and ratings posted on its site and uses that information to shine a spotlight on the very best in each category. In the Fine Dining category we're thrilled to be named at Number Six - and couldn't be more proud!

Sitting alongside hugely well-known and respected names such as The Fat Duck and Waterside Inn (both of which have three Michelin stars no less!), Restaurant Sat Bains, L'Enclume in Cumbria and fellow Yorkshire restaurant The Black Swan at Oldstead, we feel truly honoured.

Thank you so much to everyone who has left a review for us on TripAdvisor - it has contributed to this great achievement and we really very much appreciate you taking the time to share your views on your visit.

Delicious meal! Can't wait to come back

A meal at the Heifer feels very special!

True Yorkshire Hospitality

Highest quality food and service


One of the best places to eat in the North East of England. Excellent and imaginative fish dishes, even the loos are imaginatively decorated..

Seafood Heaven - This country pub may be locked away in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales, but it is acclaimed for it's wonderful fish..

More About Our Food

Our menus burst with local produce, and our list of local suppliers is almost as long as our list of return visitors - from eggs to wine, vegetables to fish and meat to coffee, we use local wherever we can.

We have our own in-house smokery - perfect for smoking meats and fish - while pastry-chef Krissy handmakes our chocolates and famous granola.

Our chefs speak to local suppliers daily and if something’s particularly excellent, we look to add it to the menu.

These great ingredients are used to brilliant effect in our inclusive menus offering great options for all diets - most of our options can be made gluten-free - as well as vegan and vegetarian choices.
