Latest review:

The Black Swan was named the best restaurant in the world in 2017 by TripAdvisor and The Best restaurant in the UK 2018 by The Food and Travel Magazine. The restaurant provides fresh produce daily from the 2 acre kitchen garden. The restaurant has its own accommodation of nine rooms in adjacent house. In spite of being 3* I found the rooms to be spacious and spotlessly clean with all amenities provided. The staff are very friendly and pleasant. The food is creative and tasty but falls short of wow. Definitely worth a visit if one was in the region but is not worth a special visit.

Our Review of The Black Swan at Oldstead (February 2019)

Having spent a good few years living in Yorkshire in a former life, I have to say, it's a place I'm pretty fond of. Sat amongst the glorious countryside are a number of outstanding pub-cum-restaurants including The Black Swan at Oldstead, a family run venue and holder of a precious Michelin star since 2013, when Chef Patron Tommy Banks picked up the coveted accolade at the age of just 24. I was very much looking forward to giving his food a try as a I visited with my wife for lunch on a gloriously sunny February Saturday, our last meal of a little anniversary weekend away....
