Description: An ancient and historic pub, where Robbie Burns once slept, offering a warm Northumbrian welcome and great local food - try our fabulously fresh fish and chips, or delicious beef sourced from a farm just down the road.Service with a smile and a relaxed and comfortable meal waits for you - there's been an inn on this site for around 600 years so why not call in and take a break - we serve food from 12 noon until 9 pm seven days a week.

We visited the Black Swan for a late lunch\early dinner. The food was very good and obviously homemade. The vegetarian option was delicious. My husband opted for the steak and ale pie which he thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were friendly and the general atmosphere warm and welcoming.

We turned up here on our way back from Scotland to North Yorkshire at 4pm on Sunday-often a difficult time to get something to eat. We were made very welcome and assured that food was no problem. The beer (Alnwick Amber) was first class and the food every bit as good. The steak and ale pie is a classic of its type-wonderully rich gravy, succulent meat and lovely light pastry; the fish and chips is probably as good as I've ever eaten-light batter, beautiful flaky fish and fantastic chips. Both members of staff we met were welcoming , friendly, polite and very efficient. It's a pity we can't give 6 stars!

Called in here after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. Glad we did, a quiet night, but the food was brilliant. Fish and chips were great, steak burgers good, a really nice pub food event. and cheap too! definitely worth a visit.
