Popped in for lunch at The White Swan. Know it well but worth a review as service and food was outstanding. Cheery welcome. Great beer/wine and delivered to table. Steak ciabatta and salad and chips - just great. Normally steak sandwich has crap steak, not here. Extra coleslaw on the side not charged for - proper home made stuff. Why... More

I must first comment on the staff. The are the kind that you like to take with you to any hotel you visit. Every one was willing to undertake any task to make your visit special .The hotel is on a hillside so if your room is inside, you have steps to climb. If you are in the courtyard, as... More

We stayed here as part of the same tour as the previous reviewer. We had a comfortable room in a newer building, separate from the main house. The attentive staff and the fresh, well prepared local fare highlighted the experience. If you are in North Yorkshire, Pickering and the White Swan are a great focus for touring this wonderful patch... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a Yorkshire garden tour. It was well located to be our base, and is in a charming market town. The hotel itself was delightful, and the rooms , super-comfortable and clean, with loads of character. We dined in- house on a few nights, and the standard of food was superb. Best... More

Very friendly atmosphere and attentive but not discrete service in the restaurant. The meal was great and good value. The restaurant itself was coaching in style with plenty of space between tables and very comfortable chairs.

We have just spent the weekend at this Hotel, it could not have been better. The staff are brilliant and so welcoming. It is extremely dog friendly, our schnauzer loved it . Although we did not eat there in the evening the breakfasts are superb, all cooked to order. We shall most certainly return.

This was a very last minute booking, but we couldn't have been treated any better if we were regular visitors. The room was very clean and comfortable and included little extras. The food was delicious, both the evening meal and breakfast. I am so looking forward to staying there again.

Called in for a quick pint, decided to have a sandwich en route to a meeting. Mediocre sandwich, and grossly overpriced ale - to the extent it was almost a pound a pint over the general price, in the area for the same stuff! Staff were more interested in discussing the hi-tech till, which was, when they got the hang... More

Had to ring beforehand to enquire if parking available as couldn't find this on website. No charge which is an added bonus these days. Check in was a little slow as one person was checking in and showing people to rooms. Similar on check out. Slightly disappointed with the size of the vintage room for the price. It was a... More

We love it there as we are always made to feel welcome and our dog loves all the fuss and attention!!! The room is large and spacious with a lovely bathroom and... More
