A FOUR-LEGGED-FRIEND approved breakfast offered by the Wensleydale Heifer has scooped a prestigious award.
We were named as the venue to enjoy the best breakfast at the recent Flavours of Herriot Country Awards 2018.
Judges visited the Heifer to sample the breakfast and found the range of delicious local produce alongside a sausage for one of the judge’s canine companion just couldn’t be beaten for quality, friendly welcome and standard of food.
We were delighted to be named as winners in the category. Their famous Yorkshire Breakfasts are given outstanding reviews on sites such as TripAdvisor and feature delicious treats such as Krissy’s Homemade Granola, handmade fruit compote and, of course, lovely local sausages and eggs in the cooked breakfasts.
All canine visitors receive a complimentary sausage, a touch which went down particularly well with the judges!
The award judges noted: “Being greeted with such a warm smiling welcome when we arrived, set the scene for what was to come. All their special touches gave it the winning edge.
“A very busy breakfast service, but nothing was too much trouble. Our request for a quieter corner led us to their cosy snug. It was spot on.
“A tempting array of ‘help yourself’ cereals, home-made muesli, plump fresh berries, fruit, and fresh yoghurts.
“Very generous Yorkshire-sized, freshly cooked full English breakfasts were served, and the creamiest scrambled eggs with smoked salmon were delicious. Fresh toast, tea and coffee were plentiful.
“Our guest, a well behaved-dog, received a very welcome bowl of sausages! Even a Birthday Balloon and Wensleydale Heifer card were brought to the birthday boy at the table!”
David Moss, Owner at the Wensleydale Heifer said: “We pride ourselves on using only the highest quality ingredients and local suppliers here and our breakfasts are known far and wide.
“The team are thrilled that all the hard work that goes into making sure our guests start their day with a fantastic breakfast has been recognised in this way. The Flavours of Herriot Country Awards are hugely prestigious, and a real showcase of the best the area has to offer in food and hospitality – we’re honoured to have won.”
The Flavours of Herriot Country Awards aim to celebrate the best the area has to offer in food and drink and the awards ceremony were held at The Garden Rooms, Tennants, Leyburn.
