Michelin-starred Restaurant. 4 AA Rosette Restaurant. AA 5 Star Rooms. "This is an extraordinary place, a true one-off. Unbeatable."- Alastair Sawday's. The Black Swan is dynamic with a truly creative and innovative team developing new ideas from a constantly refreshed palate of produce which we grow and forage ourselves. Guests experience something unique - an intimate reflection of our character, our place and our lives which is in essence "Oldstead Now". Stylishly grounded in tradition and culture yet cut through with a modern earthy, exuberant creativity and the occasional glimpse of eccentricity.

We had the tasting menu with wine pairings on a Saturday night and absolutely loved it. The wines were really interesting and the food was fantastic - the scallop and hogget courses were our particular favourites but everything was stunning. Not 100% sure about the...More
One night, bed and breakfast with friends. An absolute treat. The rooms, in a nearby building were very comfortable and well furnished with very nice bathrooms.
The food lives up to everything you would expect from Tommy Banks, every course a delight and very interesting....More
Arrived at the Black Swan on a rainy Friday evening for a one night stay with tasting menu. Got off to a slightly worrying start when despite being asked and confirming twice that one of us had a shellfish allergy, there was no record of...More
All I can say is that everything about the experience was perfect. A welcome as warm as the log fire, beautiful homely furnishings,knowledgeable,attentive service and mouth watering food. Thankyou to everyone concerned for providing us with such an amazing evening we can’t wait to return!
We booked the tasting menu months ago to celebrate our recent wedding and it was amazing.
The staff were fantastic and explained every dish. The atmosphere was so relaxed you could be yourself and just enjoy the breath taking food. I cannot pick a highlight...More

I didn't have any problems with the Tock system at all, but maybe it is a problem once they are full, the booking open six months in advance so every month they open booking for six months hence, hope this helps!
