Wow... what a find a well thought menu, seasonal and cooked with passion and skill. The service is excellent and the decor is too. We'd suggest booking a table in advance of your visit to avoid disappointment.

Visiting locally over the weekend I looked for a local restaurant with a good reputation. I always review trip advisor for other peoples opinions but also like to make my own mind up. Trip advisor was full of praise so booked a table a couple of weeks before we came to Masham for the weekend. We were not disappointed. The... More

Found via Trip Advisor, booked on the day via their website whilst staying locally at Swinton Park. What a find! We had a delicious evening meal in pleasant surroundings, particular highlights were the whole slip of Dover sole starter and then the fillet of beef which my 11 year old daughter also enjoyed. Friendly and efficient service by the family... More

Our wedding anniversary lunch for 10 today at Vennells was excellent ... but then eating there is reliably excellent. All starters were enjoyed ...the beetroot salad was well received, the squash soup tasty and the slip sole a regular favourite. The roast beef, Yorkshire pud and veg excellent... all very tasty, and excellent and great value. Desserts also enjoyed. If... More

Jon and Laura Vennel could not have been more helpful with my task to arrange a Masham reunion for 11 people. Not only were they so efficient to deal with before the event, they gave us a wonderfully warm welcome and then produced the most delicious meal & fabulous wines. We all loved it!

A small but high quality restaurant serving the best that the local area has to offer. Menus change with the season and the prices are very reasonable for the standard of cooking. A great wine list, friendly service and some superb cheese to finish.

I had the great pleasure of dining and entertaining three guests at Vennell's this week, following a booking which was made on my behalf in that I as not familiar with Masham or the surrounding area. What a find and what an unexpected pleasure our evening turned out to be. From the wonderful service, comfortable surroundings and superbly delicious food,... More

The first time we were here for Sunday lunch, a year ago, it was so wonderful that I was almost afraid to return for a second visit lest we be disappointed. I needn't have worried - it was every bit as good the second time. The little pan-fried Dover sole starter was exquisite, and the roast lunch was everything that... More

I can only reiterate most of the other reviews – excellent fine food, reasonable wines, and super friendly service all make for a very convivial and special evening. A short, well balanced menu with temptations galore offered by a chef who can produce mouth watering results – superb, moist partridge with a gorgeous deep sauce, simple slip sole cooked to... More
