The Wensleydale Heifer has to be the best find we have ever made. As fish lovers and lovers of the Yorkshire Dales, we deliberately chose this venue because of its extensive fish menu and the opportunity to stay in one of the themed bedrooms. Our only difficulty arose when we had to make a choice from the wonderful menu - we wanted everything and should have booked a two week stay to work our way through. In the end we settled for a smoked salmon starter, and oysters. Our main courses were a lobster, king prawn and scallop salad and halibut fillet with crab and brown shrimps. The accompanying vegetables perfectly complemented the fish course - in most of the other restaurants we have visited, this has been a rarity. It was a sad moment when this delicious meal came to an end, but a wide selection of rare malt whiskies to be found in the whisky lounge did console my better half, as did the home made cakes which formed part of our room hospitality tray. The next morning's breakfast, after a refreshing night in our splendidly themed room, rounded off a perfect stay. The kippers were probably amongst the best we had eaten and what a joy - real toast made from real bread, not the usual cheap sliced bread which even the best of hotels nowadays seem to choose. Thank you to the Heifer team!
