Restaurant description

A rustic retreat amidst the natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Wensleydale Heifer Leyburn serves seasonal British food that has earned it a place in the Good Food Guide. Serving a dedicated lobster menu, and winner of AA Seafood Pub of the Year, the restaurant specialises in using carefully sourced British produce to create simple but exquisitely presented dishes.

Prepared by a team of chefs who have worked in several different countries, the weekly changing menu is diverse, and is led by supreme seafood from the British Isles. From the grill, try the signature malt whisky and brown sugar marinated beef fillet, celeriac and truffle purée, and a choice of sauces including aged Roquefort and muscat cream. The seafood dishes are every bit as exciting, and include banana leaf-baked Scottish salmon, with crab and Thai peanut curry sauce. The Heifer’s Canadian lobster salad is enough to satisfy the hungriest of diners, featuring lobster, scallops, tiger prawns, crispy belly pork, smoked bacon, and a sweet maple syrup dressing. As well as a vegetarian menu, a range of dishes have been designed for gluten-free diners, including the Heifer’s famous fish and chips.

As well as a children’s menu, vegetarian and vegan menu, and a hearty Sunday lunch, The Wensleydale Heifer West Witton boasts a lengthy list of world wines and creative cocktails. The snug and bar offer the opportunity to enjoy a hand-picked whisky or local ale from the comfort of a cosy fireside chair, whilst the restaurant garden is open for al fresco dining in warmer weather.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, The Wensleydale Heifer in North Yorkshire sits between the idyllic towns of Leyburn and Hawes.

    Breakfast in the restaurant was very rushed. Didn't have time to finish cereal before cooked breakfast arrived. So I had to send it back. Far too rushed didn't have time to digest my cereal... Evening was excellent but again alittle rushed in between courses.

    The meal was very enjoyable and to an extremely high standard all round. We got an early table (6:30) so got the choice of the three course menu for £21.95. There we a good number of other couples celebrating wedding anniversaries like my wife & i were, which added to the atmosphere.

    Excellent evening despite a lot of birthday celebrations. Who would have known that five birthday celebrations could be handled so effortlessly by the staff The Foi gras starter was so delicious, the Lobster was tasty. The service was happy and attentive. This is not cheap eating but it is not the most expensive in the dale...I would/will recommend it highly.
