    Our lunch at the White Swan was quite simply delicious. We were difficult customers in the sense thst one of us is coeliac and one on a fat free diet! That did not however detract from the food, it was amazing. The tomato and basil consomme had a depth of flavour that was stunning and the salmon cooked in a water bath delicious.

    The restaurant is very welcoming and friendly. The food never fails to disappoint. Favourite salmon starter and the beetroot pudding. In between the delicious Whitby cod.

    Fantastic food, fantastic wine, great service

  • ((((* 17 July 2017 by Julie Eatwell from Blackburn

    The recently redecorated pub/restaurant gave us the warm welcome we have become used to over the last couple of years. Every course was excellent but we all felt that the mango desert was the most memorable of this evening.

    Generally good
    Starters all fish or seafood- 1 diner didn't eat these
    Shortages of main course dishes

    Chips were disappointing

    Staff were great- friendly, professional and knowledgeable
