Sandwich made with dry and mouldy bread. Beef was old and dry. No apology or offer of refund. Everything in the bar was greasy and dirty. Nice bottle of Merlot, though. The barmaid attempted to be friendly but was unhelpful. I see that I am not the first person to have complained about mouldy bread.

We didn't expect to find a cosy pub to eat in on St Patrick's Day, but we were wrong. It was quite early when we arrived and reasonably busy. After a hard day's work & no lunch we opted for steak & ale pie with mash and a mixed grill. My pie was very good, a hefty portion - though...

Rounded off a lovely weekend at york with Sunday lunch at the Black Swan. Food was home cooked and excellent. Fish pie was the best we had tasted. Well done to the chef and all staff will definitely be back next time we visit.

Called in on a busy Saturday afternoon, getting a drink was slightly chaotic but we got served eventually. Hadn't booked a table for food but was told there was one available so got seated straight away, although you can't eat in the bar area and have to go into another room where the food is served. We only had a...

I organised a birthday party for my mother-in-law in the ghost room (which is amazing). The party was a success due to the excellent buffet provided by Maggie and wonderful hospitality provided by Andy and his amazing staff. Thank you from all the Eden family x

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...
