I regularly stay here when working in the area, and hope to come back more to enjoy the beautiful outdoors surrounding this lovely country pub. The bar is very smart and comfortable, with a range of tables and seating, and a lovely log fire. Nice local ales to try, and always friendly staff. The food is amazing - tasty, generous... More

I stayed one night en route to Scotland - perfect choice ! The rooms are lovely ( although I only stayed in one, I assume they're all of similar quality !) and the staff both friendly yet not in your face. A great choice I made, would highly recommend for hospitality , food and quality of rooms... Thank you.

We stayed here for 3 nights end of Nov beginning of December. What a fantastic place, friendly and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. Lovely freshly cooked and prepared food. The evening meals were very reasonable and well presented. Breakfast was also very good with a choice of hot dishes freshly cooked. Our room was fabulous with a... More

Up to date decor, warm log fire in bar, plenty of seating areas as we were a party of 13 . Very friendly staff, up to date toilets with disable and baby changing facilities. Ideal location for walking... More

Our journey home was changed to a severe weather warning. We were hungry, cold and tired. The sign for The Black Swan was nice and clear on the A66, we decided to take the detour...it was the best decision of the week! The welcome we received was as warm as the log fire in the bar both are what was... More

We recommend this Inn and would definitely return here. The building has been well restored and elegantly furnished. On the ground floor one finds a very cosy friendly bar where one can ear and dine, plus the restaurant area. The bar seems popular with village residents as well as tourists. Our bedroom was on the small size even though described... More

This pub and that at neighbouring Langwathby have been superbly restored by the same owner with comfortable modern decor and furnishings it is scrupulously clean and the food is excellent. Unfortunately there is background music played. This is not obtrusive unless one sits near one of the windows underneath the speaker but would be if the pub was empty. The... More

Stopped here on the way back from Edinburgh, well located for the motorway and a potter into the lakes (would also be handy for the dales. Inside has been renovated sympathetically, original features but lighter and more spacious than similar buildings. Well priced, rooms clean and comfy, nice toiletries. Dinner was busy - it was Friday - but excellent, proper... More

Needing a stop for the night on a long journey south from Scotland we looked up this pub - the price and location were right so we'd check it out on our way. Culgaith is a quiet village in the Eden Valley - easy access off the main roads south. On arrival the owner was welcoming, the room charming and... More

We ate here last weekend having already booked a table. We ordered drinks at the bar and were shown to a table in the bar area to look over the menu. Our order was taken from us and we were then shown to our table. The restaurant area was well decorated and very clean. Our food arrived promptly and all... More
