Little Plates or main courses but always new tastes to try. Talented chef Neil changes the varied menu regularly. Good quality food at good prices.

Absolutely amazing Sunday dinners! You can't beat the price. £7.95 for a large dinner and you get plenty to eat! Friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Have tried other places in Belper but non can beat the price, taste or service! We go at least twice a month. (The little plates deal is great too weekdays, definitely recommend the... More

A nice airy modern pub with friendly staff. Seemed very popular with people just leaving work on a Friday evening. Would happily go again.

The food is always good, I'd say a high standard pub grub with some more imaginative things, like tapas, good salads and better than average sandwiches. We also have Sunday lunch occasionally, the roasts are good and there's a veggie nut roast option. We have the smaller plate option... More

Great to meet friends here and enjoy a good glass of real ale. It is always busy on a Friday night and has lots of atmosphere. The food is varied and of good quality. It is always nice to try something different. In the summer it is nice to sit outside on the market square and watch the world go... More

Enjoyed a very tasty Sunday lunch with good service and easy parking. Arrived at 12 noon when it had just opened and within half an hour or so the place was full. Can highly recommend The Black Swan for both food and service.
