The Wensleydale Heifer

Main Street, WEST WITTON, Leyburn, DL8 4LS

1 rosettes

Dining on super-fresh fish and seafood isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you're in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, but this chic 17th-century inn with boutique rooms draws foodies from far and wide for its piscine pleasures. The wide-ranging menu offers something for all comers: king prawns are given an Asian spin with sweet chilli, sesame, coriander, crispy shallots, cashews, toasted coconut and Japanese yakiniku dipping sauce. Next up, salmon and crab are baked in a banana leaf and matched with Thai peanut curry sauce. It's not all about fish, either: the kitchen pleases carnivores too with prime slabs of locally-reared beef.
