“Dog very welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Popped in for lunch as sign said dogs welcome. The place had a nice feel with fire burning. The staff very friendly and even gave the dog biscuits. The food was good, as was the beer, however the coffee was poor. The place is a bit shabby, but had a nice feel about it.

“No food and no cards taken”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We visited Middleham for a week over the new year. When we went in the Black Swan the landlady was welcoming but the restaurant was closed. Signs on the door appeared saying no food and no cards taken as machine was out of order.

“Dropped in for a coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Unwelcoming average coffee at a small cafeteria for 4.50 felt uncomfortable it was cold got out quick. Seemed to be for locals not visitors and the landlord had it like a theme pub rather than a cosy town pub.

“Good pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Visited here on a cold Saturday lunch time. Went in as dogs are welcome. Nice log fire burning and warm welcome from staff. Good selection of food to choose from. Well cooked jacket potatoes. My husband had a very nice Thai curry from the specials board and my sister had a really nice piece of coffee and walnut cake . Enjoyable relaxed visit and the various dogs got all the owners talking. Would visit again if ever back in the area.

“Didn't expect much, but the food was quite good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

It is a 'town' pub and when we went it was packed with locals on a Saturday night out. But the friendly staff found a table for us, beer was good, and there were no surprises on the menu, but there is a specials board with one or two additions to the menu, but when the food turned up it was good, well cooked and tasty in a pub food sort of way. Service was erratic , but then it was a busy pub on a Saturday night.
Would definitely go back to eat.
