If you like Wensleydale cheese or just cheese you will be amazed at how many different varieties are produced. Unfortunately when we visited late April, 2015, the site is not currently making cheese whilst they build a new creamery. Wensleydale cheese is being made but in another group factory near Ripon. There is a museum, which is fascinating, with all... More

A must visit for all cheese lovers , try the samples before your purchases, too many too choose 👍 the demonstration of cheese making was very knowledgeable and interesting. Will definitely revisit when in the area with a bigger cooler box 👍

We went there for the cheese tasting and the demonstration of cheese making. The demonstration was very interesting and the cheeses were delicious.

This was a fun visit, primarily due to the influence of Wallace & Gromit. The history and near disasters of the creamery are interesting in themselves, and we watched a cheese-making display with a personable cheesemaker (blessed are the cheesemakers?!). The cheese shop has samples of all of the Wensleydale cheeses, and I tried a piece of every different type... More

I hadn't been to the creamery in years so we thought it would be a fun thing to do on easter weekend. The shop and cheese tasting/buying area have had a revamp which means there is more space which is a massive improvement! The only problem is at the moment there isn't a tour happening because of the re-vamp, it... More

Visited here with family. Cafe initially has the impression of somewhere where older people go for a carvery and cake but the food we had was really good quality and very good selection. In fact I had a nicer meal than I have had in many pubs in the area. Of course there was a bias towards cheese in quite... More

Visited for an afternoon snack. Food ok but found the staff did not want to be there. Everything was an inconvenience for them.

What a yummy place to visit, as it was mid morning we decided to eat in the lovely Café, it was really excellent and reasonable priced, with a good selection. The gift shop was well stocked with a whole host of items that suited the creamery and the surrounding areas. The staff were very friendly. The highlight had to be... More

Choice of tearoom and restaurant both of which are very good. Meals are good value with good offers. Superb cheese shop with all the variety you need and very good tourist shop. Caters for all tastes.

Visited the dairy the other day whilst staying in Hawes and was impressed with the demonstration on cheese making and the really interesting guy who made us laugh! Lots of cheeses to try too. Not as impressed with cafe but gift shop good!
