What a lovely friendly pub. We visited here for a spot of lunch with our dog. We ordered drinks and found a lovely table in the bar area. The waitress asked us straight away if our dog would like a bowl of water, lovely touch and most welcome on such a hot day. The food we ordered was superb, burger... More

We popped in for lunch on Tuesday 19 July 2016. We had a lovely al fresco meal in the court yard. We all had beautiful sandwiches with fries and a couple of drinks. My roast beef sandwich was rare and delicious just the way i like it! The little bottle of Prosecco topped it off. We felt like we could... More

We hadn't planned to dine in Pickering, but having been delayed by a breakdown on our visit to the NYM Railway on one of the hottest days of the year, we were a little tired, hungry, and most of all - thirsty! The White Swan was one of the first dining options we came across, and having scanned the menu... More

A lovely suite and fantastic breakfast. Live music in the bar could interrupt your sleep so make sure you ask about the bar entertainment when you book. Staff are friendly and helpful and will happily give you a room away from the noise if you ask.

Overall this is a very good hotel. We booked as an indulgent treat for my husband's birthday, and we enjoyed our stay, apart from a couple of points. On arrival the reception staff were welcoming and friendly and showed us to our Hideaway room. The room was spacious, contemporary yet cosy, and the bathroom a good size. The courtyard area... More

Excellent organisation. Booked Guy Garvey concert in Dalby Forest and called on spec to book accomodation. Once they knew it was for the concert they offered their standard dinner b&b rate inclusive of a picnic basket and wine.They also offered a taxi service to and from the concert. All brilliant and definitely the way to do it. We met a... More

Plan A was to stay in Whitby and travel by steam train to Pickering and have Sunday lunch at the White Swan. We did this a few years ago and loved the food. Then Ireland got through to play France at 2pm Sunday. So we cancelled (plan B). As we approached Whitby on the Friday we decided to go for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner ... more   less
