Nestled in the beautiful North York Moors National Park, 20 miles north of York, The Black Swan at Oldstead is a picturesque, family-run country inn serving some of the nation’s finest cuisine. Created by the Banks family, who have lived and farmed around Oldstead for many generations, the acclaimed restaurant has so far garnered an outstanding 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin star.

Head chef Tommy Banks has no formal training, and none of his team at The Black Swan has previously worked in Michelin-starred restaurants, but they have achieved recognition in their own right for their genuine talent, flair and enthusiasm. Indeed, Tommy is now the youngest Michelin-starred chef in the country.

The Black Swan menu conveys a real sense of nature and the seasons; of fresh tastes straight from the fields and woods; of age-old methods merging into dynamic modern innovation, while running through everything is a true sense of purpose and place. Simple yet refined recipes encapsulate this philosophy perfectly, with dishes including sea trout with crayfish, shrimp, peas and beans, or pork with celeriac, apple and savoy cabbage.

A haven of cosy countryside charm, The Black Swan at Oldstead features a luscious garden for al fresco dining in the summer months, while the rustic interior, with its roaring fireplaces and exposed beams, radiates welcoming warmth all year round.

    The taster menu with matched wines was wonderful. I recommend the experience without reservation. Staff are lovely and very knowledgeable. Langoustines, scallops and pollock were standout for us. The open fermented wine was a surprising delight and we look forward to our next visit. A more glamorous uniform would better reflect the skills and expertise of the staff although their enthusiasm shone through.
