“Shame there are not many more places like this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Where to start? The initial greeting was so welcoming, it was like going to a family members house! Graham, Barbara & their staff have pulled out all the stops to make their place one of the best & friendliest establishments we have come across in the area.
Don't be fooled by its past reputation! The White Swan, now, has a really pleasant, easy-going atmosphere with lovely freshly cooked food and a good variety of wonderful, well-kept cask ales, lagers and ciders on draught, along with an abundant choice of wines and spirits.
The en-suite room was really comfortable and spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the place (a credit to you!) We didn't want to leave! We intend to visit again in the very near future - well worth the drive from the South Coast to enjoy the company of what we can only now class as friends.
We hope that there will be a room available for us. (with the reviews you will be getting, you will be extremely busy all the time!!)
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. :)
Lynn & Dave W.

Our stay here was brilliant!!! First class!!! The room was lovely clean and modern and the bed was very comfy!! Had a really good nights sleep! The people who own it (sorry don't know their names) were really lovely and very welcoming and the food was out of this world and very reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here again!!!

we visited on New Year's eve not knowing whether they would still be serving meals, as it was a late decision. We were greeted by lovely staff members, and our meals were excellent, not to mention the fine selection of well kept ales. We returned in the New Year for a family birthday celebration and once again, the service, food and staff was fantastic. I would most certainly recommend a visit, the Landlady and Landlord (Barbara and Graham) make you feel so welcome, I'm looking forward to my next visit. This is an ideal for location for anyone looking for a stay if traveling via LBA

During a visit to Yeadon, West Yorkshire, a local gentleman and his wife recommend that on our next stay we should try the The White Swan. So we did.
We were greeted by the Landlady Barbara and her husband Graham as if we were old friends.

I can only describe the place as a luxuriously decorated establishment.

Due to the quality of our stay, we booked in for a second night.

This establishment offers.
* A vast choice of fine real ales (mostly local), along with lagers of the world and a wine list to die for.
* Food cooked by the Chef who is a former Executive Chef of the Hilton International Group, with over thirty
years experience.
* Choice of carvery on a Wednesday and Sunday, otherwise a quality A La Carte Menu all home cooked and
without a "ping in site"
* High quality, comfortable rooms, spotless, and at a very reasonalbe price.
* A wonderful friendly and helpful group of staff that bring a vibrancy to the place.
* Literally two minute drive to Leeds & Bradford Airport. A bus stop right outside if you choose to visit the
historic town of Otley or the cosmopolitan City of Leeds.
* Local shops on the doorstep.
* A lovely outdoor area where you can watch the cricket.
* A gorgeous huge lake called Yeadon Tarn, where you can have icecream and feed the vast range of wild
birds, and take a leisurley walk after a wonderful meal, or just walk off the cobwebs.

I would highly recommend this stop off for any family, business person or sole guest. I will not stay anywhere else now, not even at my daughters. Cannot wait for my next visit.

Room Tip: You could have a choice of five rooms, we were given room 5. A family room or twin rooms are availa...

We 1st found this hotel back in June, we'd just arrived at leeds/Bradford airport tired & hungry and were recommended by an airport worker to go to The White Swan, I wanted to write a review then as it was so good (unfortunately tripadvisor couldn't find it). Since then we've been back with 2 other couples and the food/service/accommodation was still amazing and such good value for money. If you stay one night you can leave your car for £1 a night whilst you're on holiday too. We have eaten twice on a Sunday and the carvery is so good, all home cooked and hot, we've also eaten from the menu and it was excellent. The Hotel is very clean and the en-suites spotless. If we didn't live so far away we'd make it our local!
