It’s great to celebrate the success stories across the county, we have some of the best hotels, restaurants and places of interest in the world. And it is great to show them some appreciation for their consistent efforts. Wensleydale Heifer, in West Witton, has been awarded its second AA Rosette.
This comes from hard work and consistency, which it’s easy to see that this restaurant works hard to stay at such a high level. Rosettes are hard to come by and are only given to “excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency. A greater precision is apparent in the cooking, and there will be obvious attention to the selection of quality ingredients”, according to AA. Run by father and son team, Lewis and David Moss, we applaud the Wensleydale Heifer for its efforts.
This achievement can be added to the list along with the five-star rating the Wensleydale Heifer holds from the AA, alongside the AA Breakfast Award and AA “Inspectors Choice” Award.
According to The Northern Echo, David Moss said: “This has been quite the year for many reasons. We’re so delighted to have received our second AA Rosette… It’s a real marker of quality and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have achieved this great honour.”
“Achieving the two Rosettes is absolute testament to the commitment from each and every one of our fantastic team here at the Heifer… Creating the perfect visit for our lovely guests is the focus of the whole team – from everyone working in the kitchen team led by our head chef Craig and sous chef Graeme, right through to the reception, housekeeping and front of house teams – they all contribute to creating the very best experience we possibly can for our guests.”
He continued, “For this award to come so close to being named in the TripAdvisor Top Ten in their Traveller’s Choice Best of the Best Awards for fine dining is just amazing.
“It’s been a challenging year due to Covid-19, so to have achieved these fantastic things is a reflection on just how hard the Wensleydale Heifer team has worked.
