“Good food with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

This was a lunch time treat for us courtesy of two very good friends.
We received a friendly welcome at the bar - well kept Black Sheep!
The meal was freshly cooked with generous portions all round.
Very reasonable prices.
Well worth a visit.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with friends

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

My husband & I stayed in a twin room which was large & had modern decor. We were given instructions on how to use the shower but my husband described it as like having a shower from a watering can-the water pressure for the bath was fine though. As you would expect being above a pub, there was a fair bit of noise with loud voices & the pub door banging every time somenone came in / out but it was very quiet when the last customer left at 11.40pm (so take ear plugs if you're easily disturbed). We had a meal in the restaurant which was delicious and breakfast was first class with locally sourced produce. Angela was very welcoming and attentive & overall we had a very pleasant stay.

The location of this hotel is a bit out of the way but it suited us perfectly for this visit. We were made to feel welcome, the room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The evening meal was taken in the restaurant and the food was excellent in quality and presentation. Similarly the breakfast was great. The shower, as mentioned in other reviews, is OK if you follow the owners instructions and there is always the bath with plenty of hot water to fall back on. I would recommend this to anyone and it is great value.

We booked a last minute break to The Black Swan. It is just perfect for a relaxing trip to a beautiful part of the country. The owners Peter & Angela are perfect hosts - friendly and welcoming. Our room was lovely - comfy bed, large bathroom, and everything you could want in a B&B, and so quiet...an excellent nights sleep!
The food is exceptional...top quality, beautifuly cooked and presented, and really good value. A lovely young waitress served us, so helpful and, as everyone at The Black Swan, worked really hard!
Breakfast was just wonderful...that guy can cook!!! :)
Thank you for a fab weekend. We will be back!

We were made to feel so welcome here, it was like a home from home. Angela was the perfect hostess! Our room was small, but had everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable, there was a hairdryer, lots of tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc. The bathroom was spacious and although the shower had to be on low power to have any real heat it was adequate. The lovely bath more than made up for that and there was a selection of nice toiletries. Breakfast was delicious and so generous that we went without lunch! Woody's restaurant is great. Really good food at honest prices. We ate here two nights and to be honest I can't imagine why you would go anywhere else. When we next go to North Yorkshire, we will be staying here again.

My husband and I spent the weekend here. It's a great location in a beautiful Yorkshire village. The food was of good quality and overall the place had a nice feel about it. My only complaint is the shower. I have long hair and needed to wash it and I couldn't wash it in the shower. If you wanted any power in the shower the water was ice cold, despite being told to run it and turn the bath tap on at the same time. I had to have a bath which wasn't particularly convenient for me. Other than this it was a lovely location.
