“A warm welcome for all”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

A friend recommended that we eat here for lunch, as the pub allows dogs. Our party of 2 adults, a 2 year old and 2 dogs were given a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

The food was very tasty and obviously home cooked, no microwaved gubbins. We had a couple of starters to share (I can definitely recommended the homemade spam fritters - delicious!) and the BBQ burger which was a special that day accompanied with some of the best chips I've ever tasted!

The chef was more than happy to make something not on the menu for the youngest in our group. And the dogs were overjoyed at the attention from the bar staff! Overall a great visit for all us and will definitely return.

“Beer and food deserve a try”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

First impressions gave us a sense of welcome. On our visit we tried a couple of beers which were in excellent condition. There is a wide selection of real ales. We tried the food from a good menu selection where there is something for everyone from nibbles to a substantial meal. There is a real fire and the seating is well spaced. There is good parking to the rear. In conclusion this is a very friendly public house that deserves a visit. I'm sure you will enjoy your visit just as much as I did.

“Good, home cooked food.”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

This was my first visit to eat at The White Swan and I was very impressed. All the food was delicious and good value for money. The 'real' chips are definitely worth going back for. Friendly bar staff and good service.

“Best food in Otley”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

this was a lovely dining experience. The food was traditional pub food, obviously home cooked and really delicious and reasonably priced. The surroundings were pleasant and there is ample parking as it is walking distance from the town.

“Top class fresh food, tasty and very generous portions.”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The White Swan, which was refurbished last year is a very pleasant pub close to the centre of Otley (3 minutes walk from the Market Place). They serve a good range of real ales which change regularly.

All the food in this pub is obviously freshly cooked and of excellent quality. The beef and ale pie is the best pie I have ever tasted and the chips are addictive! Nothing tastes as though it has been frozen or microwaved. The service is good and the atmosphere is friendly. The Chef takes a personal interest in ensuring his customers are happy.
