Visited last night on the recommendation of friends as staying in the area and wow the food was amazing. We booked the early bird menu which allowed you a £15 supplement towards the various steaks which was a great option from the complementary warm bread and smoked salmon appetiser, through the starter, mains and deserts we could not fault anything...

Simpson and I were staying in the area and came her for a meal after a recommendation. The car park is small and was very full, frustrating but also a good sign. We parked not far away on the kerb. When we entered we got drinks from the bar and were given menus, the choice was excellent from some great...

Excellent stay. The bedroom was amazing and the food was out of this world. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We have wanted to visit for ages and it was well worth the wait.

I've stayed here once before, and was desperate to go back! I wasn't disappointed again and this time stayed in a different room (Chocolate Heaven). The service, quality, cleanliness and food are all spot on, and if I lived closer I would definitely stay here more often. One night just isn't enough, but go hungry! Thank you to all involved,...

The WH is one of those places we've always had on our list to visit and never quite made it. Well, more fool us! We made our first visit early April to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, booking a Tuesday night dinner B&B. We arrived mid-afternoon. Our greeting was warm and friendly. We were shown to our room and were delighted...

Definitely up there with the best steak I have ever had. Stayed in the movie room was exactly how advertised along with a 3D TV and plenty of movies to choose from. Great location and the dog loved his walk over to aysgarth falls. Highlight of the stay was unquestionably the meal in the restaurant.
