4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went today for Sunday Lunch...three had roast beef and I had vegetarian option which was omelet with chips on the side. No other choice of vegetarian food available. My dinner party enjoyed the roast beef but suggested the gravy could have been thicker. The roast potatoes were not crisp which made them rather substandard...they were probably kept in a warming...

Just spent a weekend at The White Swan and it was great. Very clean and comfortable, very polite and helpful staff, welcoming bar and lovely food plus everything you could want in the room from the usual tea and coffee to sewing kit and a very entertaining information book. Have booked again for next year

Very lucky to get a last minute room during the war memorial weekend. Great hotel snd a great 'hideaway' room. The staff are all friendly and professional, especially Claire who was running the show, very attentive and knowledgeable. Had a lovely dinner and good bottle of wine. We finished the evening in the private bothy with great company and a... More

Parking spaces and mini terraces in the courtyard rooms are made private with bushes, and a table and chair. Entrances lead only to two rooms each, so again, fairly private. We found our room very strange: flagged floors had a Wufhering Heights feel, but thankfully had underfloor heating for part of the evening. Sparse furniture was oddly discordant, with a... More

I stayed again at the White Swan with a sporting party on Sunday 28th September. For the first time I was in one of the rooms in the main hotel rather than one of the hideaway rooms. The room was excellent. The atmosphere in the bar, which remains cosy and unspoiled was superb. Food was excellent and the wine list... More

On September the 14th we were passing through Pickering on our way to Sleights and we stopped off for some lunch. It was actually my birthday that day and we were looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate it in over the lunch period and having found The White Swan Inn, we certainly felt it was the right place to...

We stayed at the White Swan September 17-20th and wanted to say a special thank you for your outstanding service. We have enjoyed several visits to te White Swan and once again had a wonderful stay. Special thanks to Claire and Imogen who made us so welcome.

The White Swan Inn is well located in Pickering. We stayed for two nights, the staff were both pleasant and efficent and our dining experience was good. The main building is full of character and our bedroom in the annexe provide all that was required. Well located for the NYM railway.

I booked the White Swan as a surprise getaway weekend for my boyfriend and it was truly lovely. The venue is gorgeous, a traditional inn with modern but in-keeping decor. There is a delightful 'Bothy' which featured a fire and wonderfully comfy sofas. The bath was also to die for! We also ate in the restaurant and the food was... More

We stayed in a Hideaway room for 2 nights in Sept. Room was great with space, comfy bed and good bathroom. Pub was v dog friendly. Staff were all really helpful. Bothy was a great space with the fire taking the chill off the September air. Pub itself is nice. However the food - whilst very nice - is a... More
