We came here late and were made welcome, the waitress was very friendly and helpful with all our requests. The food was good, not great, not enough of it for me, small portions, but i would return. The place is homely and nice inside.

Stayed here as working in the area. Nice buzzy pub atmosphere downstairs and a comfortable bedroom with a decent sized bathroom. Nicely appointed and everything you needed, all spotlessly clean etc. Located right on the highstreet, so everything youd need is close at hand. There is a private carpark, which I didn't use, as came by train, but that looked...

Live local and want it to be good but just not great . The menu is very limited and the only special was Curry. Food looked nice but was cold and not value for money. Coffee tasted stewed would have had a dessert but again a terrible choice available.

What can you say. A great light and airy room (1). Battered haddock and home made hand cut chips mushy peas and tartare sauce. All washed down with real ale from Helmsley and a goodly dollop of friendliness and atmosphere. Great. Also with leaving early I was given a bacon sandwich in foil and a bottle of spring water. It...

Always call at the Black Swan whenever we visit Pickering. The Choice of Ales is outstanding, the food gorgeous. The lunch time steak sandwich is to die for, absolutely yummy. We have eaten there in the evening and I had the chicken breast off the special board and I didn't regret it . It was tasty and moist. We can't...
