Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Claire the long term landlady of the White swan greeted us and was friendly and helpful with the extensive menu on offer. Our meal was excellent, both with quantity and quality, even though it was busy with a large party our food arrived promptly, look...forward to our return to try other things off the menu.More

We have been visiting Yellowtop for many years but only came across this perfect place this time round, and my goodness what a find. Fabulous choice on the menu and struggled to decide, however the steak pie was the best I have ever eaten, packed...with perfectly cooked meat and an enormous portion, the chips were to die for and the veg so crisp and fresh. The restaurant was so snug and cosy and the staff were delightful. The only disappointment is that we didn’t find this place sooner. If you are looking for a hearty meal in a lovely pub restaurant with cheerful, helpful, friendly staff then this is a must. We will definitely be back in the summer.More

Second time visit for family birthday. Excellent pub meal. Pushed out the boat for fillet steak - very good. Pepper sauce brilliant (if you like it strong). My wife had lamb shank which was also excellent. There was a pub quiz on at the time...which we had feared would be intrusive to us but wasn’t at all. It made the atmosphere as the pub was nearly full. Interesting to hear the questions without the pressure of answering! As we left my son (whose birthday it was) was given a bottle of wine. I can highly recommend the White Swan for excellent food and atmosphere.More

Came for a lunchtime meal and enjoyed it so decided to come for an evening meal with family. Evening meal was disappointing. Sizzler was over salted and was poor value. Only the steak meal was good from the 6 we ordered. Disappointed and will not...be rushing back.More

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile, took to our table, and straight away asked if we would like drinks that were promptly brought to us I like this...as to many places seat you then dissappear before offering drinks, an extensive menu was brought which has something for everyone and a huge special board with more fantastic choices on , the food was fantastic and tasty steak was cooked to perfection I had the mixed grill very filling I only just ate it overall a brilliant little pub excellent service excellent food , well done.More

What a lovely pub, we booked this as we are staying close by for a couple of nights and thought we'd start off/treat ourselves to a bit of lunch, we narrowed our search down to 3 and I am sooo glad we chose this. The...welcome was very warm and despite being very busy, they had a large party for an 18th, the service was attentive and couldn't be faulted. Both myself and my partner had the Roast Beef and the beef didn't disappoint, hardly any fat, well cooked, perhaps just cut a bit thick for my personal tastes but considering how much rubbish beef is served for Sunday lunch in some establishments, this beef was definately a 12 out of ten. The gravy delicious, proper gravy, lovely mash, really creamy cauliflower cheese, the only slight disappointment would have been the roast potatoes, either done with the joint or done a bit too long and the yorkshire pudding was a bit chewy But we would definately go back, there are other meals served other than just Sunday roast and they looked simply gorgeous. There isn't an option for 4.5 and it's not quite a 5, so had to opt for a 4. Unfortunately we live in Leeds so it couldn't be a weekly trip but I'd definately drive an hour for lunch again. Well done to the chef and all staffMore
