HEART OF BEDALE…
The Old Black Swan is a welcoming traditional pub located in the centre of the market place in Bedale. The pub dates back to the 17th century as a Coaching Inn and sits prominently in the heart of Bedale, a bustling market town just at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
Whether you just need a quick drink to quench your thirst, a few drinks to celebrate an occasion, a sandwich to keep you going or a full dinner to satisfy your hunger we have something to suit all tastes.
We serve handcrafted real ales and delicious home cooked food 7 days a week. As well as our real ales from local brewers and our delicious locally sourced menu you will be welcomed to the Black swan with true Yorkshire hospitality.
ON THE BAR…
We offer a full range of drinks to suit all. We try to stock local suppliers where we can and we listen to our customers’ needs as well
On our bar you will always find several real ales from one of our local breweries, Theakston brewery, who brew their beers in the famous brewing town of Masham only 6 miles from Bedale.
ENJOY THE SUN…
We have a very pretty, small but perfectly formed beer garden for our customers to enjoy during the sunny months, with some bench seating and oodles of colourful flowers and plants.
The Beer garden is the perfect place to relax soak up some sun and enjoy a refreshing drink or a bite to eat on a lovely warm day.
OUR LOCALS SAY
Visited on the night England were playing in the World cup so a very busy pub. However the service was excellent and when we ordered food the staff did say due to the pub being full they may be a slight delay. However the food was served quickly and was very good and good value for money.
The staff were excellent, polite and very efficient on a very busy night. Worth visit if in or around Bedale
We stayed up in the dales for a week and visited twice,once on the way up at lunch just for a sandwich which was brilliant and included fantastic chips,and came back one evening for the senior citizens special (two courses £7.95)which was excellent.PS.the beer was good too.
Friendly staff produced filling, tasty and reasonably priced food as a late lunch for three generations of our party. It was quiet and we all enjoyed what we had. We would go there again if we were in the area.
Eat here regularly as they do a seniors special from Mondays to Fridays. Always busy, staff very friendly and helpful. Wonderful ambiance and well frequented by the locals. Always enjoy going there and highly recommend it.
I would highly recommend the old black swan pub. We stopped here whilst on a family holiday in Yorkshire. The pub was cosy, background music was great and most importantly the home cooked food was fantastic. I would highly recommend the homemade steak pie, the chunks of meat inside was unbelievable.
