“Last minute but very good reception.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We had planned to stay in Leeds for the Royal Armouries but finished our tour early. We had no WiFi service so I called my brother and asked him to look for a small pub B and B and he came up with the Black Swan. The room was rather on the small size but had everything we needed, the foyer and stairs leading to it are rather shabby so I was happy to see the room very clean and neat.
The bed was comfortable. We had an excellent dinner and breakfast --the good food was a big surprise. Staff/owner very friendly--wouldhighly recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

It’s a little bit out of the way but I have to say The Black Swan is a cracking little pub/hotel. It has a restaurant attached to it called Woodys, not sure why but the food is good!
I arrived late, strictly speaking too late for an evening meal but I phoned ahead and the staff said that would be fine and so it was - very good quality. My room, one of four, was well layed out and comfortable - and just as important free wifi with a good signal strength. The breakfast was again very good.

Would I stay again? Yes without a doubt. If you are ever in "Herriot Country" stop over at the Black Swan near Northallerton.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2008

We stayed one night at this pub, restaurant and inn in the small village of Thornton-le-Moor while visiting relatives in the area. There are only a few rooms above the pub and restaurant, decorated in a modern style with a quality bed, flatscreen TV and DVD player, clean modern ensuite bathroom with a powerful, hot power shower. The only possible criticism is our room was quite "compact".

The restaurant is highly rated and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there, excellent food with generous portions, plus a varied wine list. Breakfast (full english) was again good quality fare.

Would highly recommend this for those who like quiet, out of the way places (in the morning all you could hear were the sheep bleating across the fields!).
