We stayed at the White Swan with two other couples in mid August 2013. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by a young lady behind the bar. She directed us to our rooms and advised booking a table for our evening meal. Our room (no 9) was quite small but clean with a powerful shower in the bathroom. We were all very pleased with our evening meals and breakfast. The staff were friendly and efficient at all times even though it was quite busy. We all agreed we had enjoyed our stay and would like to return.

We (myself, my husband and 2 children aged 3 and 6) stayed here for one night on 15 August 2013 after visiting The Forbidden Corner. We stayed in Room 3 overlooking the rear courtyard. I was pleasantly surprised by the room which was lovely. I have read a few reviews on here about some rooms being a bit "tired" etc but I would disagree. We ate in the restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious and I am a very fussy eater!!! I had the Thai chicken curry which was gorgeous. The kids had a pizza and that was really nice too. You could tell everything was home made. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was excellent. The breakfast was also lovely and the portions were "man sized"!!!! The room was a bit hot but it was the middle of August I suppose. I would definitely go back here, for the food especially!!! The owner was also very pleasant and wanted to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

On the evening of 11th Aug at 19.05 we went to The White Swan for a meal. The barman [a young guy] served us with the usual politeness and when we asked about a table to eat the convo went thus...... MYSELF.... Could we have a table for two
BARMAN.... Sorry we are full End of convo
A far better explanation would be...... Sorry we are fully booked tonight with guests as tomorrow is the Glorious 12th but we can do food any other night.. you can try Richard 3rd or Black Swan .. very sorry.
It is irrelevant that i am local and eat 10+ times per annum as i knew the alternatives but for a tourist more helpful info would be valuable... As the bar was practically empty and the Bistro similar a more thorough explanation would have helped a non local. It has always offered delicious food and good sevice

I'd just visited the local attraction Middleham Castle and needed a bite to eat etc.
Nearest public house is The White Swan, good i thought and ventured in.
It was quiet, i was possibly their only customer,but it was 12.30pm,no matter.
Looking at the bar's wickets i noticed they had Black Sheep bitter or rather they didnt (sold out).Other "wickets"empty also.
Nevermind i'll have a "Fosters", a success.
They sell food , not an excessive menu but adequate. I ordered the "Sloppy burger" which entails a huge burger patty with monterey cheese topped with chilli con carne in a bun served with chips and salad garnish retailing at £8.99 which i must say is delicious.

This is the second time that we`ve stayed for an odd night at The White Swan.

On our first visit some aspects of the décor were looking slightly "tired" but overall we had a most enjoyable evening with excellent food, service and good company. We were assured by Sean that a rolling program of improvements was planned to start so that when we were emailed details of the Tapas night we decided to go along, confident that even if nothing else had changed the food would be good and the evening entertaining.

We were absolutely right in our confidence but were pleasantly surprised by the improvements which, as promised , were very evident. New carpets and a beautifully redecorated room greeted us. We had, with some slight trepidation, taken a couple of friends along with us but, happily, they were equally as impressed and vowed that they would certainly be visiting again, as will we.

Book in if you can, we think you`ll enjoy it!
