We came here for a bite to eat, because we were staying at Richard III and fancied eating elsewhere. The pub part was full, so we sat in the adjoining restaurant area, but it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. I found the food to be a bit pricey because we weren't hugely hungry, so I ordered the burger. It... More

We stayed here as a group of 6. Great welcome on arrival by Glen. A couple of drinks in the cosy bar to get our bearings and book the restaurant for our evening meal. The rooms were very nice, ours had a nice view of the square...lovely watching the race horses on Sunday morning going for their training. Evening meal... More

Thank you for the great feedback. You 6 were a joy to look after. Sorry about the mix up at breakfast i will have a free drink waiting for you when you come back. I am still cringing though with the thought of the Brain damage cocktail you told me about. Glenn More

We were reccommended to try this restaurant after a couple of mediocre experiences in another local pub. We had looked at it from the outside but were unsure. However it just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a place without going inside! We went on a Sunday night with our friends and thoroughly enjoyed it; the restaurant was clean... More

We stayed in the village and tried all of the pubs one afternoon and evening and we found this one to be the most uninviting tbh. The barman was not rude but not particularly friendly and he was a bit unsure of the drinks on on sale. It just didn't suit us for some reason even tho it looks lovely... More

The White Swan is quite a large pub and although it has the expected beamed ceilings, dark wood etc it has a surprisingly light and airy atmosphere courtesy of the large picture windows. Really cheery landlord, good service and fine beer - another one of Middleham's fine pubs.

Had a delicious meal here - Lamb shank falling off the bone and very tasty with a lovely selection of well-prepared, seasonal vegetables. White chocolate panna cotta with raspberry jus was simply gorgeous. Attentive staff and lovely, relaxed atmosphere make this a place to recommend!

Stayed here for 2 nights as a mature couple. We had a double room overlooking the village square. Main issue with the bedroom was that the storage for clothes was limited. One small cupboard and drawers that were not big enough to allow clothes to be folded in half to be stored, they had to be quartered! The room also... More
