"Cute, quaint & lovely"
Everything was wonderful. The owner and staff members couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was made to order. The bar stayed open as long as we were sitting there. Dinners were exceptional. Our room was well equipped and the bed was big enough for two long people. My only wish was that the shower stall had been wider, but considering that everything […] else was EXCELLENT and the fact that there was a tub available, I can hardly complain. I'd definitely stay again and again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good value clean and comfortable hotel. Foodws of a good standard and well priced and together with a couple of local ales on tap made for an enjoyable eveningGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely village pub, however it was very quiet, which we found a little odd as its the only pub in the village. When asked on the Saturday evening if it was 'normal' to have no customers, we were told Fridays and Tuesdays were the days the locals came out, however we were there on the friday evening and it was equally as quiet. The restaurant menu was […] not very extensive and we would have struggled to choose more than one meal from the options offered. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great valueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay at The Black Swan will be best remembered for the excellent and good value food for which we would highly recommend. The room was fairly large although the beds not as comfortable as we would have liked. Unfortunately the bathroom had a funny smell and the shower didn't get hot, also the water pressure was not good but luckily there was a bath […] to use instead. We did ask about the shower and tried running it for ages on low number as advised to no avail. The general appearance of the hallways, stairs, toilets etc could do with a lick of paint and freshen up. We had an enjoyable stay overall and would recommend The Black Swan for the food alone.

"Comfortable with good food"
This is a village pub with a large restaurant at back. It only has a few bedrooms. I have an evening meal which was very good, as was the breakfast. Pub had guest real ale. Pub was generally very clean and pleasant, but corridor near pub toilets could have smelt better.Genuine Expedia guest review
But in need if a touch of tlc. Excellent hosts and temperamental hot water! Big bathroom with bath and seperate shower. Comfy beds and good food. Carpets a bit stained, but generally clean room. Recommend for a short stay on the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal for touring both moors and dales"
A pleasant 2 night stay at a comfortable and well run establishment. Good food and service. Only criticism was the shower that seemed to lack the necessary water pressure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Travelled down with my mate from Scotland to go fishing at the the Oaks fishery 11 miles from the hotel, and stayed for two nights. Very tidy hotel run by genuinely nice people at a very reasonable price with top notch food.

"Great location for exploring Yorkshire"
Great Yorkshire village location for exploring the dales. Food was of good quality and the owners were friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay in a quiet village."
Situated in a pretty quiet village. Both the room and its en suite bathroom were large and well furnished. There was a fan in the room which was great as the weather was very hot! The evening meal at Woodys Restaurant, which is part of the inn, was fantastic. Breakfast was good too. We would definitely stay here again if we were in this part of the […] country.

"Black Swan Good Value for Money"
Outstanding value for money, the rooms were clean and comfortable with well stocked hot drink facilities (yummy shortbread). The breakfast and evening meals were excellent. The service was spot on and our hosts looked after us extremely well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION"
This was a great hotel/BB. In the evening Woddy's between 17:00 and 19:00 does one of their main courses for £7 which was excellent value for money. The breakfast in the morning was very good and served with a smile. Room could have done with a bit of work - but it wasn't that bad to complain about. Location is in a small village with easy access to […] Richmond North Yorkshire. There are some super houses in the village. Overall would rate 4.8 out of 5 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hospitality and food makes it !"
Service and food excellent - accommodation a bit compact,looking a bit tired and in need of a bit of TLCGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were greeted at the door when we arrived with a lovely smile from Angie. Very friendly service.Three of us stayed in the triple room which was spacious,very clean and had everything you needed.Bathroom was large with a lovely bath and hand held shower perfect!We didn't eat an evening meal as we were at an event but breakfast was really lovely and […] when we return we will probably have an evening meal if we don't get fed at my sons homecoming parade in Northallerton! Very convenient for Northallerton.We are returning at the begining of July so look forward to the yorkshire hospitality once again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Despite being a wee bit remote, the hotel (part of a pub) was a reasonable venue for my overnight stay. The service and quality of food was good with comfortable room and bed. Unfortunately there was a horrible pong in the entrance (smelt suspiciously like a full waste tank), really awful. However, I am sure it's better now!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Day at thirsk Races"
Myself and my wife stayed here after a day at Thirsk races. The owners and staff were really nice, booked us a taxis to races for when we arrived etc. We had a meal in the evening and the food was lovely and reasonable value. Breakfast was served to us the following morning and was really good too. I would certainly use it again for the races.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very nice pub in a quiet village. Food in restaurant was delicious. Staff excellent - very friendly. Only gripe was that only cold water in showers. We were assured that plumber would be called.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet pub, great food, great staff"
Roof very very comfortable. Staff excellent friendly and made my overnight stay a pleasure. Food I ate in the restaurant for dinner on arrival and breakfast the next day and both were very good. Staying away from work is not always a pleasure but this stay was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

A good family run bus […] iness. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
De kamer was zo heet met de hittegolf, dat we er alleen maar verbleven als het niet anders kon. Een grote ventilator gaf enige soelaas. Het restaurant had wel airco. Helaas met uitzicht op een groot stuk asfalt, welke dient als parking. Mevrouw was zeer vriendelijk, maar mijnheer had schijnbaar zijn dag(en) niet. Het ontbijt was goed en het diner o […] ok.

"Wonderful Friendly Place To Stay & Eat"
03/16/14 jay jay h York, United Kingdom
Having just got engaged we fancied a couple of romantic nights away, as I had to go to work both Saturday & Sunday we didnt want to travel too far. We were so pleased we chose the Black Swan Inn, as we had the most amazing food on both evenings & both breakfasts. Our room was lovely & clean & overlooked fields at the back of the property, had 2 peaceful nights sleep. Angela was really chatty & helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. Going to go back soon to try thir Sunday Lunch.
"Needs some TLC"
12/15/13 FrancesandStuart Norfolk
Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Room lovely and warm with nice hospitality tray. This is not really a hotel but a pub, but saying that it seems to do most trade in the restaurant. There were large function on 2 of the nights but still managed to get us in for a meal. The food was a good standard and nice and hot. The chef appeared to be miserable every time we saw him he did not acknowledge guests or even smile. The owner did all the laundry on site and was always doing the ironing in the bar area. It could be improved but until they stop trying to be a poser eaterie and do what they do best it will stay the same. The meals are very good value with a great choice.
"Woody's Restaurant at the Black Swan"
12/08/13 Helen W Pickering, England, United Kingdom
Just had the most excellent Christmas meal at Woody's Restaurant. There were 9 of us in the group. Food was fabulous, vegetables beautifully cooked, 3 courses, followed by warm mince pies, coffee/tea - nothing too much trouble, lovely relaxed atmosphere. Hidden gem - will definitely be going back here! X
"Good food with friendly service"
12/05/13 Andrew B Buxton, United Kingdom
This was a lunch time treat for us courtesy of two very good friends. We received a friendly welcome at the bar - well kept Black Sheep! The meal was freshly cooked with generous portions all round. Very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

My husband & I stayed in a twin room which was large & had modern decor. We were given instructions on how to use the shower but my husband described it as like having a shower from a watering can-the water pressure for the bath was fine though. As you would expect being above a pub, there was a fair bit of noise with loud voices & the pub door banging every time somenone came in / out but it was very quiet when the last customer left at 11.40pm (so take ear plugs if you're easily disturbed). We had a meal in the restaurant which was delicious and breakfast was first class with locally sourced produce. Angela was very welcoming and attentive & overall we had a very pleasant stay.
08/28/13 Alan H Hartlepool, United Kingdom
The location of this hotel is a bit out of the way but it suited us perfectly for this visit. We were made to feel welcome, the room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The evening meal was taken in the restaurant and the food was excellent in quality and presentation. Similarly the breakfast was great. The shower, as mentioned in other reviews, is OK if you follow the owners instructions and there is always the bath with plenty of hot water to fall back on. I would recommend this to anyone and it is great value.

We booked a last minute break to The Black Swan. It is just perfect for a relaxing trip to a beautiful part of the country. The owners Peter & Angela are perfect hosts - friendly and welcoming. Our room was lovely - comfy bed, large bathroom, and everything you could want in a B&B, and so quiet...an excellent nights sleep! The food is exceptional...top quality, beautifuly cooked and presented, and really good value. A lovely young waitress served us, so helpful and, as everyone at The Black Swan, worked really hard! Breakfast was just wonderful...that guy can cook!!! :) Thank you for a fab weekend. We will be back!
