“Excellent evening dining”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Just visited for the first time having heard and read so many good reviews. Not disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service, good atmosphere - we really can't say any more. Definitely will go again.

We visited The White Swan recently for the second time and stayed for four nights. We were visiting relatives who live close by but don't have a spare room for us to stay. Rooms here are comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is excellent (we paid almost three times as much for roughly the same breakfast on our return journey home) Can't comment on any other food as we didn't have any this time but our in-laws like it. It's close proximity to Leeds/Bradford airport is very handy. We find Barbara and Graham very friendly and eager to please and wish them well. Hope we meet again before too long.

We visited last week to try out after recommendation.
As we live locally it would make an ideal lunch venue if everything was ok.
I was going to write this review after our visit last week, but as the saying goes one swallow does not make a summer.

We have just returned after our second visit in a week.
The food is excellent, prices are very reasonable, the staff are first rate.
The only down side is the lack of atmosphere, but that is a personal thing.
Will be going back again shortly.
The Landlord and Landlady deserve to do well. At long last a decent eating place in yeadon.

I live locally, and really wanted this pub to be good when it was refurbished, and it is! The landlord and landlady are so welcoming and friendly, and all the staff can't do enough for you. The menu is extensive enough so suit every palette, and after having eaten there a few times now, and trying different things, I can definitely say the food is fresh, homemade, and really really tasty. The burgers are gorgeous, the sharing platter is enormous, fishcakes are lovely, and the chicken and spinach pancakes were delicious.

The only tiny tiny flaw that it has it perhaps a slight lack of atmosphere... We like a little bit of music, and the speakers weren't working in the front section of the bar so it was quite quiet, but then I'm sure there are lots of people that don't want any music, so you can't please everybody!

Overall I do think it's the best pub in the area.

Thanks for the feedback

Apologies for the lack of music, you are right the speakers only play in the standing bar area.

Once we start to make a profit we have this on our to do list, individual speaker controls in each designated area.

Its great to get this feedback as we dont know what we dont know and feedback gives us an insight into what we need to change

Varied Menu, competetive pricing with a good choice of beers, lagers and wines. we have been several times as a couple and with friends and have always enjoyed. However, last time we visited on 06/April the food was not as good as usual. Not bad, but not up to previous high standards. Shame really,as we took a group of friends on that particular occassion and I do not think overall it met everyones expectations. The bar area is friendly and great when visiting as a couple and they have a larger dining area to the rear which is ideal when taking a group of friends. I will put the last experience down to a 'one - off experience' and expect the food to return to its former superb standards next time we visit.

We live locally. My husband had heard great things about the food at the White Swan since it was refurbished, so he decided my 50th birthday would be celebrated with friends at the swan as a surprise. The service was superb.The food was outstanding.We will be eating there again in a few days time as there really is no other venue locally worth returning to again and again

Thank you, It is difficult to overcome the pub's historic reputation however its customers like you that try it, and like it, then come again, and take the time to tell everyone that is keeping us going.
