My colleagues and I regularly frequent this pub for after work drinks and we love it! The drinks and food are very reasonable in price and the food is a good standard.

Just had a lovely meal in the Black Swan. Highly recommend any pie off the menu- the steak and Stilton pie was out of this world! Staff are really friendly welcoming and attentive. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back

The black swan is a curious place. You feel the conservative atmosphere the moment you walk through the door. This is a Yorkshire pub, generally for Yorkshire folk, but if you're lucky you will benefit from their drive for perfection. Food is excellent, I have...More
