Description: The Black Swan Tearoom, located in the picturesque market town of Helmsley in the North York Moors, is both charming and traditional, and offers a fabulous quintessentially English Afternoon Tea experience which even the connoisseurs of Afternoon Tea wouldn't be able to fault. In addition to the traditional Afternoon Tea which changes seasonally making best use of the fresh, local produce available, a wide selection of brasserie style dishes are also served making the Tearoom the ideal place to meet up for lunch or simply just a cup of tea and a chat.

We came here for my girlfriends birthday and we're very underwhelmed by the hotel itself and the afternoon tea. We were not expecting great things for dinner because of this but how wrong we were. We chose to dine from the 7 course tasting menu and what a great choice we made. Each course was interesting, beautifully presented and delicious and we received a little booklet talking through each course. The chefs were happy to accommodate the menu for my pregnant girlfriend and nothing was too much for the attentive waiting staff. I must also mention the Italian maitre'de who was very friendly.

Visited with friends and we all agreed this was a memorable meal! The restaurant was full, however the service was good with knowledgeable staff. We chose not to take the tasting menu(10 or 6 courses) as we would all have to eat from the same menu. However, we can save that for a return visit! The beef & venison mains were superb. The chocolate & banana desserts to die for! Well worth a visit. The only down side is that there really is not room in the bar area for all diners to have a seat before dinner or for coffee.

We had an amazing culinary experience at this hotel restaurant. The food was exquisite, the service exemplary and the whole evening will remain as one of the finest meals we have ever eaten. This is from a couple who regularly enjoy fine cuisine up to and including Mivhelin tar locations. Go there, you will not be dissapointed

We found this place almost by accident and had lunch. Service by our waiter was excellent - natural and unobtrusive. The sandwiches and tea - also excellent. A lovely little quality tea shop with class and with value for money. My small criticism was that the manageress? had a small problem with the waiter and should've aired her feelings out of earshot of the customers. The waiter was professional, however she didn't appear to be. The music that was played in the background was very appropriate. We'd definitely return and will recommend.
