We just went in for a look and a drink, the lounge is small with round tables, -bit close together, the table tops were polished up lovely you usually see water marks on that type of surface! The atmosphere was nice made even better with the huge open log fire burning. In contrast to the dark decor here the ladies...

We stayed here with 2 other couples for a weekend of beer and ghost hunting. What a find. Great location. Free parking which is expensive in york. Wonderful traditional bar with roaring open fire and great hospitality. The food is also gorgeous and the rooms are spotless with everything you need for a wonderful stay. Luckily I didn't see any...

Our first return visit for over three decades & little had changed in character & charm. The beer is as good as ever I recall & lunch was wonderful, freshly prepared & delicious - with very generous portions! It was a fitting reminder as to how real English pubs were & fortunately can retain the same level of quality, albeit...

Lovely traditional inn serving British fayre. Lots of pies and stews. Open fire place and lovely to spend a bit of time. We had steak pies and rabbit stew - all really tasty and some nice gravy as well. Staff are super friendly and helpful - but the tables were a little close together. It wasn't s problem for us,...

My only regret is that we didn't eat their delicious food. I really wish we would have had a meal here. However, we arrived before anyone else this day and met the most wonderful Carol who was incredibly sweet and told us about this fascinating building and all its rich, rich history. Then we met some awesome people who came...

We ate here two nights out of a three night stay in York (it would have been three meals but we were too late on the last night!). A lovely pub, friendly staff, surroundings beautifully decorated for Christmas. On the nights we ate the food was delicious and home cooked. On the night we missed food serving time the barman...

We have just returned from 2 nights at the Black Swan to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. What a find, a two minute walk into the centre but to be honest we never wanted to leave the pub. From the wooden beams, cosy dining room, wonderfully comfy four poster bed to the amazing bar with the warm inviting log fire...

Popped in for a drink on Saturday night with a group of friends in York. Real fire and traditional pub feel with plenty of atmosphere. Great selection of real ale beers and really friendly staff. Worth a visit.
