We travelled to Leyburn on a Sunday, first for a day out but also to look at a local caravan park we are using for easter - more of a spying trip! We ended up in the centre of Leyburn and decided to have some lunch. We saw the Black Swan which was immediately opposite the parking area in the... More

Having booked in for the Saturday night only, my wife and I arrived at a busy time at the pub. This did not affect our greeting from John the landlord as nothing was too much trouble. The room was large and clean, the bed very comfortable and plenty for breakfast. All staff were friendly all in all a great stay... More

Just back from celebrating my husbands birthday in the Yorkshire Dales. Stayed at the Black Swan in Layburn where the rooms were spacious, comfortable and very clean. We were made very welcome by John the owner (who hasnt changed since we last stayed 13 years ago!). Centrally located over looking the square, an ideal place to stay to visit our... More

On a trip from Australia visiting a few Yorkshire Dales villages, we decided on the Black Swan at Leyburn, the price was in our budget, and it was in a handy situation looking over the town square. We were made very welcome by the Irish owner John, who runs the pub and being a long time resident had many suggestions... More

Visited Leyburn as part of a small tour group, and had the good fortune to stop here for a night. Our room was very snug and comfortable, simple but affordable. Our host John couldn't do enough for us and was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the local area. The food was excellent value also - a decent size not like... More

We have many weekends away in many areas of Yorkshire but have never stayed anywhere as bad as the Black Swan. We booked a weekend here hoping for a cosy country pub. What we got was a cold, uncomfortable, unfriendly, empty pub, totally lacking in comfort & atmosphere. Our room was very basic, the lock on the door from the... More

For all wondering, please refer to the gallery on our website where you can view each room individually. All have flat screen televisions, tea... More

Don't waste your money! The pub had no fire lit on a cold, wet January evening, no wifi even though the website states it has & no customers (but that's no surprise)! We were booked for 2nts B&B but had to cut short our visit. Informed the man landlord/manager/bar man that we would have to leave the following morning &... More

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately the fire you speak about has only recently been opened up and revealed in the last few weeks after ten years. As you will understand there are certain procedures that need to be undertaken before it can be lit. Furthermore, the fire will be only a focal point,... More

I find it very difficult to rate this pub. My scores are all "average" but there is nothing average about it. Some aspects are really first class, others decidedly less so. Firstly, the location, right on the market square of this old town - plenty of free parking right outside (except on Thursday night and Friday up to 5pm because... More
