“Great traditional pub with excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Visited this evening and had a really lovely meal - freshest haddock and crispiest batter ever. Huge portion. Very nice beer (Black Sheep) and lovely staff - especially gentleman behind the bar. A friendly, welcoming place with no airs and graces.

“brilliant place and so welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Such a warm cosy pub with friendly accommodating staff. I stayed over the course of a week due to work, the landlord barry was most welcoming and the food great (I ate there every night and every dished i had was lovely) Not overpriced and excellent value for money will definitely be staying again.

“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.
