Description: Welcome to The White Swan, Wighill. We are ideally located between York, Wetherby, Tadcaster and Leeds, as well as being close to the A64 & A1, both of which are just 4 miles away. Making us an ideal spot for a break in your journey, whether you are just visiting or passing through. We only close on a monday, excluding bank holidays when we fire up our hand built clay oven for the best pizzas around! Food is served every day 12 - 3 and 5 - 9:30.(12 -5 Sun) We have a seasonal menu which changes frequently to use whatever is good and in season. We love food, we love the countryside and we love our job. Hopefully all this will reflect in your dining experience and I'm sure it will as we have seen many returning customers in the few short months we have been open. We have an extensive beer garden and utilise this space frequently for events and can be booked for wedding receptions. For more details please visit our Facebook page or twitter or website.

“Good Value, Friendly pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The couple that run this pub are extremely friendly and there is always a warm welcome on arrival. The food is good, honest pub grub, freshly made with quality ingredients. Prices are fairly good value for money and there are lots of regular offers such as early bird two for one deals or OAP lunch deals. Very family friendly, we've been a few times and it's always been good.

“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

An unadventurous menu, with some specials on a board - though not all were available. The food was well cooked and the portion size more than adequate. The service was friendly and the wine list was fairly priced.

“Friendly & Professional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

A very friendly pub in lovely surroundings, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Met by a very cheerful landlady we were made to feel welcome immediately. The food was good, and portions just about right. Would not hesitate to revisit

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

Our second visit to the White Swan. The food was excellent and the fish pie was to be recommended. Service was excellent and all the staff were friendly. Through chance we arrived before 7.00 and got a 25% discount - I believe this operates on 3 nights a week. Well worth driving out from York for a meal. Would definitely return next time we are in York.

“Good food & good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

I visited the White Swan at Wighill (near Tadcaster/York) last night with a friend and having not been there for a long time was pleased to see how nice it was. We went early to take advantage of the Early Bird discount of 5% (order before 7pm) - there are two dining room and the one that was in use was almost full, we left at about 9pm and noticed that we were last diners there, although people were in for a drink, so their Early Bird obviously works.

We both had a delicious fish pie which didn't scrimp on the fish, topped with mashed potato and cheese plus vegetables and chips - I don't eat meat and I noticed there were quite a few other options for me of both fish and vegetarian, which is always an indication to me that the menu has been given some thought. My friend and I then shared a banoffee pie and hazel nut ice cream - a portion which would have been a challenge for one person!

The bill for this plus 2 glasses of wine was £28 for both of us - I will definitely be going back.
