We visited the Black Swan for our Christmas lunch and had a lovely experience - for serving so many people all in one go we were really impressed with quality of the food served. The staff are very welcoming and the environment is relaxed for families with children too. We will definitely be visiting again.

Passing the village on our return home after a day at the coast. Popped in for Sunday Lunch - both Adults & children's Sunday lunches were a great size, homemade yorkies are a great touch - much better than the frozen ones which most pubs have nowadays. A lovely atmosphere, with great service. Some great food deals during the week. A lovely & large garden to the rear of the pub - will be taking a ball for our next visit.

Thankyou for taking time to review The Black Swan in Brandesburton - we are pleased to see you enjoyed your visit and our South facing garden is indeed a great place for the kids to run about in whilst mum and dad enjoy a drink on the patio - if you forget that ball please ask a member of staff if we have one for you to borrow! Hope to see you all soon

We had an enjoyable evening here, the staff are lovely and the service is very good but it is a very very basic menu. Chicken & chips, fish and chips, steak and chips etc but if that's all you fancy it is of good quality, big portions and good value.

We stopped at dacre park which was great.
We went to the Black Swan one afternoon just passing and had a drink and some food out side in the beer garden.The ales were good and the food was good and the landlord also noticed that the dogs water bowl out side was empty and filled it up for us.
We went back the Saturday after when there was a blues band on and all six of us had a graet evening.All of the staff are friendly as a whole.
We will definetely call in here again if we are passing again.
