“Cozy pub with great food!”
Review of The Black Swan

The Black Swan
Ranked #9 of 52 Nightlife in York
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 January 2014

I came here on my first night in York for a pint and ended up going back a couple of days later for lunch. The staff is very friendly, especially the gentleman behind the bar on both occasions. The food was great and the atmosphere is just what I was looking for. Nice, cozy pub. :)

Free wifi was a bonus too!

It's an impressive building of separate rooms, good furnishings and fires.
Staff were friendly and efficient and we enjoyed both food and drink (though there were plenty of menu items not available).
We intended to stay for one but ended up there for most of the evening.

Went here on advice of a friend, and am so glad I took the time to find it! Great pub, with good choice of beers, and drinks. Food looked good, but, we were not really hungry. When people imagine what an English pub is like, this is what comes to mind. Quaint, local. Friendly

Discovered this great eatery when we took our daughter to uni today. Great food, well cooked and hot. Portions massive and not over priced. Staff all very friendly, Unfortunately I was driving so not able to try out the fine beers on offer - but I will be back to give it another go. Well done all at the Black Swan.

Believe it or not we have lived in York 35 years and never been to the black swan before. Well we found out tonight what we where missing.we had an early meal at the black swan tonight and it was very very enjoyable. In interesting surroundings and with a warm welcome. My wife had burger and I had the pie. I rate a pub on its pie and this pub will get 5 stars. The steal and ale pie was crammed full with delicious tender meat. The burger was homemade and superb.we will be back thanks
