Description: The Black Swan Tearoom, located in the picturesque market town of Helmsley in the North York Moors, is both charming and traditional, and offers a fabulous quintessentially English Afternoon Tea experience which even the connoisseurs of Afternoon Tea wouldn't be able to fault. In addition to the traditional Afternoon Tea which changes seasonally making best use of the fresh, local produce available, a wide selection of brasserie style dishes are also served making the Tearoom the ideal place to meet up for lunch or simply just a cup of tea and a chat.

Proper service, we were in the hotels tea room. Friendly staff, linen napkins. Food was top quality, butcher sausages, really very tasty. Not the cheapest breakfast, but you get what you pay for and this was a quality experience.

Sister to the Feversham Arms, the food here is similarly very nice. The multi-course tasting menu looked fabulous but was too much for me on the night I visited, so I opted for a nice piece of Yorkshire beef which was beautifully cooked (rare) and well presented. Great place for a sophisticated quiet dinner

We have been here several times and we love it.. Helmsley is a lovely place and the black swan is the icing on the cake. The staff work very hard to make you feel so welcome. We went with our 4 year old son and they were so nice to him and nothing was too much trouble. Everything is cooked fresh and was worth every penny, the quality was excellent and the presentation equally as good. The decor is lovely and spotlessly clean. We have been here maybe a dozen times and are always delighted with the service and the food. The sandwiches are always fresh and moist and are filled to capacity. They offer a wide range of herbal teas as well as beers, wines and soft drinks. It always our choice when we are in helmsley

Took my parents, both late 80's, for a meal here to celebrate their 65th Wedding Anniversary. The service we received was second to none. The surroundings were spotless and bright with a "warm" atmosphere. Good selection on the menu - although I felt a trifle on the expensive side. However, the cost would not deter me from returning.

Called in for lunch and was not disappointed. Ordered a steak sandwich and cheese sandwich both of which were very good quality and reasonable value. This restaurant is nicely positioned in the town and has a traditional feel to it which we found quite charming. Also liked the look of the hotel itself.
A definite plus is that customers with (well behaved) dogs are accepted in the restaurant - you could almost be in France. Even though we don't own a dog establishments like this are a welcome change to elf n safety jobsworth britain where dogs in restaurants now are largely banned. Apart from the food and surroundings, for that reason alone we would probably pop back again when next in the area.
