Here at the Old Black Swan we only serve home-cooked delicious food. Our menus are carefully created to provide a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes. Alongside our regular menu we also have a number of daily specials to tempt the taste buds!


Our chef always uses where possible the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Food is served seven days a week from 12 noon. We have a special offer menu for senior citizens available from Monday to Friday.


Our Sunday lunch is a cracker and our Yorkshire Puddings are delicious. Due to demand for our Sunday lunches we recently extended our serving times on a Sunday, so we now serve food until 7pm this is proving very popular as there are very few places serving food till this time on a Sunday evening locally.


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.
