We went for our anniversary and had an excellent evening of food with wine pairing and stayed in one of the lovely rooms in the beautiful country setting but with modern room with wifi and wetroom! Would heartily recommend!

The Black Swan at Oldstead is definitely worth a visit. The hotel and restaurant are located in gorgeous countryside. We stayed in a cottage up the road from the main pub building. The food at the Michelin starred restaurant was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. We arrived a little early for our taster menu and enjoyed... More

The exquisite location and the outrageously beautiful weather during our stay only helped to burnish a little more the delight that was our Black Swan experience. The quintessentially North Yorkshire Moors wayside hostelry with its open fire, stone floors and sheep in the field opposite, hides 5-star accommodation, top-class service and food that tosses many more southerly establishments into a...

The Black Swan is a little gem nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, the drive there is a pleasure too, with lots of wildlife on display. We arrived to celebrate our sons birthday as a surprise for him, the staff were in on the surprise and did all they could to keep the secret. We were shown our room, one... More

Superb food excellent food. Have stayed here a few times now and the food gets better and better, you won't be disappointed ! friendly staff not only was our evening meal great but the breakfast was delicious. If I was being picky one small complaint try to serve breakfasts earlier, 8.30am half the day has gone!

We recently visited for the first time, celebrating a birthday and whilst it takes a little navigating to get to (if you think your sat nav is better than following the hotel's directions!) it is well worth it when you get there. The first staggering sight when you are taken to your lodgings for the night is the huge garden... More

We arrived later than anticipated & decided to move our dinner reservation on an hour which was good, as we had a very nice 1/2 bottle of champagne on ice awaiting us in our room. What an amazing room. In the new house across the road from the restaurant, we had a 1st floor room with beautifully appointed furnishings -... More

I've wanted to go to the Black Swan, Oldstead, North Yorkshire for quite sometime and eventually made it on Saturday evening,with friends. It certainly did not disappoint. We had booked the evening including accommodation as we lived beyond easy travelling distance. My first contact by telephone was very good with James being very helpful. We arrived late afternoon and checked... More

Was lucky enough to be taken here and experience the nine course tasting menu. What an amazing meal. Certainly in my top two. Loved everything about this place, from the bar snacks to start to the crazy lollipop course!!! The food was unreal. I've never tasted tomatoes like it. Anyone with half an interest in food should save all their... More

Arrived late afternoon to a very friendly welcome. The room was lovely and dinner was simply gorgeous. The staff were extremely switched on and when I expressed an interest in the kitchen gardens at breakfast, I was swiftly offered the chance of a tour by one of the chefs. The chefs are so passionate about growing and producing great food,... More
