Our passion for great food starts with the effort we put into finding great suppliers, especially outstanding local suppliers.
We spend as much time sourcing our ingredients as we do cooking them. Over 85% of our food is produced in the UK and, wherever possible, we buy locally.
Freshness and quality are our watchwords. As testimony to the care taken by The White Swan Inn in sourcing its food, listed are just a few of our brilliant suppliers.
Yorkshire game through R&J Yorkshires Finest. We are also lucky enough to have some local shoots that supply us with game including rabbits and pigeons.
Beef, Lamb, Pork
R&J Yorkshires Finest and Glaves butchers, both brilliant, award winning butchers.
Our watercress, grown traditionally in natural spring water and boasting exceptional freshness is from Willowdene Watercress and Trout Farm which is just a short walk from the Inn.
