Went for Sunday lunch today, beef was so over cooked you couldn't pick it up with your fork, gravy was like dark dish water, pigs in blanket were uncooked and were wrapped in fat, roast potato was anemic. Spoke to girl about standard of food, was offered another but all dishes looked the same. No refund offered, we won't be... More

Went here as a medium sized party for a birthday meal. It was lovely! You could tell the food was cooked properly as there was a natural 45 minute wait for my Spaghetti and Wild Boar Meetballs. It was very tasty! To be honest, I didn't think £17 each for two courses and two drinks is badly priced for fresh... More

After trying to go to 3 other places in Belper that were either closed or fully booked, we decided on the Black Swan. We have been here before for evening drinks but never for food. We had to check to see if they accepted children first, luckily they did and over 10's are made welcome before 8.30pm. My 11 year... More

Made very welcome with a unique meet & greet by Weller who I have to say deserves his own blog ...made our day! Food fresh, good menu to suit all tastes. Good service nothing too much trouble. Free parking close by which is a bonus. Will make this a regular stop when visiting Belper from the West Mids.

We regularly go here for lunch in a Friday. There's a good selection of vegetarian food and well as classics like pie and chips. The service is always good and welcoming and the prices are very reasonable. Last we we are here we had desert which was fantastic, home made and delicious. It's not somewhere special but if you want... More

Not the cheapest food in Belper but certainly some of the best. Very funky menu, plenty of rotating specials and sharing platters for the groups/fatties. Been around 5 times and had something different every time and cleared the plate every time. Staff very attentive and friendly, manages to keep a traditional pub feel despite being more like a restaurant. Very... More

When your home made scampi and chips arrives five minutes after you order it, it says a lot. Not homemade. Was from a freezer packet and very unappetising. I didn't try the place again.
