Having previously enjoyed a couple of meals at the Black Swan before we decided to book a night stay.I can honestly say that we cannot fault anything.The room was perfect ( four poster and copper bath) Like many others we decided on the tasting menu and were just blown away.Even the breakfast was michelin star quality. As there are only... More

I booked the Dinner Bed and Breakfast (4 poster bed) package as a present for my fiance's birthday. I also paid an additional £25 per head to upgrade to the 9 course taster menu (note to hotel....on booking page it says you can upgrade to the "7" course taster when it was in fact the "9" course taster). Upon arrival... More

We had a short break in Yorkshire, visiting a number of foodie establishments. By far the best was The Black Swan. We'd booked a special package including a one night stay at the B&B plus the nine course taster menu in the restaurant. The Michelin star rating was testament to the wonderful food served to us, and the bedroom was... More

We stayed one night in the four poster room and had the 9 course taster menu plus a half bottle of Champagne on arrival. Firstly to the room, it was pleasant, reasonably well equipped, with ironing facilities, an occasionally pixelating TV, tea making facilities with fresh milk in the mini bar which is always a nice touch and chocolate brownies...

A gastro way to celebrate a special birthday. The nine course tasting menu didnt dissapoint. Classic cookery skills without foams and mousses. Came away feeling comfortable - neither bloated nor hungry! Staff were helpful and pleasant without being intrusive. Got it right in all respects. The 5 wines chosen to go with the tasting menu were OK, but not to... More

My wife and I went here for lunch recently and we had a fantastic gastronomic experience. Put it this way, if this restaurant was in the centre of London, it would most certainly have two Michelin stars. Right from the moment we walked in, we were met with complete professionalism, attention to detail and a knowledge and understanding of fine... More

We had been trying to book a room here for quite some time and when we eventually managed to get a night away - it was well worth the wait. The Black Swan is welcoming on so many fronts - the staff, the beautiful, cosy rooms and the log fire crackling in the hearth made us feel so relaxed and... More

Stopped here as a valentines treat. Hotel was wonderful, we was lucky enough to get the room with the copper bath :-). From our arrival to our departure the customer service was superb. The 3 course meal was a delight especially the fillet steak!!! Would definitely return. Many thanks to all the staff.

I found this little gem online whilst trying to find an early Valentines night away for myself and my other half. I was taken in by the reviews of the food mainly and I was not disappointed. Every item was cooked perfectly we had a parsnip soup appetiser and then I had the scallops. The fillet steak was cooked perfectly... More

My husband and I stayed as a treat on Sunday night and the whole experience from when we arrived until when we left was exceptional. Our room was really cosy and warm, with a beautiful bathroom that had underfloor heating, the attention to detail was great, homemade cake & biscuits, Molten Brown toiletries. The service was very good, with a... More
