Our 17th May Re-opening Plans

Our 17th May Re-opening Plans

We’re delighted to announce the next phase of opening at our award-winning Visitor Centre from 17th May.

With our Cheese Shop, Gift Shop and Coffee Shop Garden already open, we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors back to our Calvert’s Restaurant and Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese Experience with Cheese-making Viewing Gallery.

Visitors can once again indulge in Calvert’s restaurant and sample our delicious *new menu* which champions our award-winning artisan cheese range and fantastic local produce. Enjoy our two-course summer special offer for just £17 and enjoy signature classic dishes with a ‘Wensleydale twist’ such as Yorkshire Wensleydale Chicken Ballotine, Yorkshire Rarebit made with Yorkshire Wensleydale, Yorkshire Red & Black Sheep Ale and the popular Calvert’s Ploughman’s, along with slow-braised Dales lamb, and Dales beef & ale pie, to name a few.

We’re welcoming reservations for Calvert’s Restaurant via phone 01969 667664, ext 3 or email reservations@wensleydale.co.uk. Please note that for indoor dining, 6 people are able to dine at one time from separate households and we’re also allowing tables of 8 people (max. 2 households) per party.

As of Monday, May 17th, visitors can also enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat in the 1897 Coffee Shop, with full table service resuming indoors.  Please note that for indoor dining, 6 people are able to dine at one time from separate households and we’re also allowing tables of 8 people (max. 2 households) per party. No reservations are required.

Our Coffee Shop garden will continue to be open for those wishing to dine outdoors, and is dog friendly, with ample seating and panoramic views of Wensleydale.

Delicious food & drink is also available to take away. See the 1897 Coffee Shop menu here!

You will once again be able to watch our master cheesemakers in action, handcrafting our signature creamy, crumbly Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese from the Viewing Gallery. Journey through the art of cheese-making and its history in the Dales through the experience, and have your photo taken with the much-loved Wallace & Gromit Characters!

    Hi, is it possible to buy the tickets for the Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese Experience online or is there any timetable for it?

    Thanks,
    Alex

      Hi Alex – we aren’t currently selling tickets online. Please visit the Visitor Experience reception on the day to get your ticket. There is no set timetable as the tour is self-guided and we aren’t hosting cheese-making demonstrations at the moment.

    Do we have to book to eat in the restaurant?
    Is it accessable for a disabled traveller?
