Having seen the complimentary reviews on trip advisor and seen that the white swan had been awarded 2 AA rosettes we thought it would be a good start to our holiday in Yorkshire to have dinner there last week. This turned out to be a mistake for several reasons: the atmosphere in the restaurant -the room was dark and gloomy;... More

I had booked this hotel as a 2 night getaway for me and my husband after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were certainly not disappointed as the hotel looked exactly like the photos on the website. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and the staff were lovely and extremely helpful. We were... More

Pickering is a small market town at the end of the North Yorks Moors railway line. There's not much to do when you get there, quick visit to the castle and a mooch around the shops so a pit stop here on the High St for a drink is a good idea as it looks like the best show in... More

My new husband and I stayed at The White Swan Inn as part of our honeymoon and we would like to express our delight at our hideaway cottage, which has a lounge (with a huge bath) a bathroom downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. The hideaway was very quiet and there is a nice area outside with a bistro table and... More

Fortunately I only stayed for lunch, which for the money was average. I was a guest of my family who were staying there so I wasn't in a position to say anything. My complaint being that my poorly elderly relative asked for 1 scoop of ice cream for his desert, when it arrived half of it had melted which the... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a UK trip and couldn't have been happier. George who checked us in and made us feel very special and welcome for our whole stay. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. We stayed in the Hideaway Rooms as we travel with our dog who was also very welcome. Pickering is... More

Was taken here by my partner for a weekend. She knows I like my food and had been led to believe that the White Swan would measure up ... it didn't. Annexe room was very good in all respects. Excellent bathroom, linen, etc ... The guests coffee lounge was a great disappointment. in four visits over 36 hours coffee was... More

We have just stayed for 5 nights at the White Swan in a hideaway room in their annex. The room was very large with an enormous comfy bed, and was great for a stay with a dog. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the breakfasts excellent. We ate two meals there and preferred the ambiance of the... More

Hi we arrived here on the Saturday and the room was ready at 3. The room was fine, overlooking next doors wine bar. The room was clean and standard. We didn't eat here for either breakfast or an evening meal so I cannot comment, there are plenty of places around to go. We booked the hotel minibus to take us... More

Our second visit to Pickering but the first to the White Swan Inn, courtesy of a gift from our children ! Arriving early enabled us to get a parkng space in the Inn's car park (although it is quite large) before embarking on a trip on the North Yorks railway to Grosmont pulled by Sir Nigel Gresley under steam .We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner ... more   less
