The White Swan Restaurant

Fresh, local and delicious

What makes our Restaurant tick

A real charcoal oven is just the best way to seal in flavour.  Our lamb comes from North Yorkshire and is exceptional - just check TripAdvisor.  Why so? Well Chef sears it at 350˚C and then cooks it slowly at a secret low temperature before finishing it back over charcoal.  It really is the finest way to eat lamb.

Proper Tartar sauce is an essential accompaniment to proper fish and chips.  Its no good having the freshest fish, the lightest batter and the crispiest chips if it is all let down by a watery sauce that only tastes of vinegar - worst still if you have to open a packet or three.  Because our mayonnaise is home-made daily from fresh free range eggs we can guarantee the whole package.  We add capers, gherkins, parsley, shallots, a squeeze of lemon and seasoning.  Perfect.

Just two examples of why we think you'll enjoy our food.   Add knowledgeable service from our well trained team and we think you'll love the whole experience.

All the fuel you need for the day, and then some!

Lunch & Dinner

We stick to our consistent mantra of using the best seasonal Yorkshire ingredients, perfectly prepared.   The menu changes regularly depending on the season and availability, take a look to get a great feel for what we may be dishing up.

Sunday Lunch

The Sunday roast is the best meal of the week, and we know how to make it special. Whether you choose an aged rump of beef, roasted Yorkshire lamb or roast pork loin, all are served with seasonal vegetables, roasties and, of course, the very best Yorkshire puddings.


We know that little ones can be a chef's biggest critics, but we also want them to enjoy fresh, healthy and delicious food with the adults. That’s why we’ve created the perfect menu for children under 12, full of tasty dishes, such as garlic ciabatta, smoked salmon salads, rump steak and chips or 'mac' n' cheese.
