Italian themed with pizza, pasta and a few other dishes. I had the gammon and eggs with a delicious pineapple relish.

The White Swan is quite a large pub and although it has the expected beamed ceilings, dark wood etc it has a surprisingly light and airy atmosphere courtesy of the large picture windows. Really cheery landlord, good service and fine beer - another one of Middleham's fine pubs.

Had a delicious meal here - Lamb shank falling off the bone and very tasty with a lovely selection of well-prepared, seasonal vegetables. White chocolate panna cotta with raspberry jus was simply gorgeous. Attentive staff and lovely, relaxed atmosphere make this a place to recommend!

Stayed here for 2 nights as a mature couple. We had a double room overlooking the village square. Main issue with the bedroom was that the storage for clothes was limited. One small cupboard and drawers that were not big enough to allow clothes to be folded in half to be stored, they had to be quartered! The room also... More

Stayed here when we went to the polar express. It was about 30 minutes from the hotel to the polar express train. Lovely rooms, very clean and modern. The pub is also lovely and breakfast was good. Parking was easy enough outside on the Main Street also there was plenty of other things going on at Christmas time in the... More

We were stopping in Middleham and decided to eat at the White Swan. The lounge area is a little tired looking but is cosy. The staff are helpful and friendly. We had an evening meal here. The food was good and tasty. Service isn't rushed. There were other places to eat in the village. We'd tried them on our last... More

A very friendly welcome and good service on a June Friday evening. The duck trio and fish were very good indeed and it was the best place we tried in Middleham. We had a lovely evening ,thank you White Swan

We went to the White Swan Hotel Restaurant and were very, very disappointed. I am gluten free and vegetarian, and I know this presents difficulties. The service was abysmal despite there being many staff available. We waited for 15 minutes for a dessert menu, which never did arrive. Finally, we gave up, paid up and vowed never to return. The...
