“Good pub food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

My boyfriend and I ate here twice during a recent week's holiday in Middleham. Each time we had generously portioned, carefully prepared, good, decent pub food. We were sorry that the pub was so quiet - sorry for the owners I mean, as they obviously were doing a good job. Friendly staff behind bar were very helpful.

“Friendly and Fun”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Great welcome by the owner John who offered us a table and we sat down... Rustic pub charm I would say as he had really made an effort. Drinks were fair price and food was just basic home cooking which is what we had wanted as we have moved to Leyburn area so after unpacking boxes this was perfect... We usually eat at fine dining restaurants but after a long journey this was perfect welcome to the Dales.. Nowt flash as they say here

“Very warm welcome”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We ate at the Black Swan one evening during our stay in Middleham and found the food to be fantastic, the portions were amazing and the taste delicious. There is a games room to the back of the pub which has a pool table, playing cards and dominoes. Children were also made to feel welcome and the staff were very friendly and courteous.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Good traditional pub offering excellent pub food large portions and reasonable prices. Staff all very friendly and very good service. We will definitly dine here again. Only complaint is I feel £3.00 for a bottle of Becks Blue non alcoholic lager is a rip off. I pay £1.65 in my local.

“Nice atmosphere but average food”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Our party of 10 enjoyed the pre-dinner drinks in the beer garden to the rear of the pub, and the bar itself, which is atmospheric and has a good selection of beers. The service for the meal was very slow, unfortunately (we had to wait almost an hour for dinner to be served, despite being at only the second of two occupied tables in the restaurant), and though all our plates were well-laden, the quality and presentation of the food was very average.
