I expected more from this place. It used to be reasonably priced with reasonable food. Unfortunately it was quite poor, not very warm food and at £12.95 for a Sunday lunch, I was very disappointed. The menu was very limited and not good for vegetarians....More

Ate here most nights during my recent holiday to Yorkshire as was staying in the upstairs accommodation. Really enjoyed the food as it was locally sourced as was of a high standard. Would eat here again in the future

A pub for more than 400 years, The Swan and Talbot in Wetherby was once a posting inn on the Great North Road. Originally named the Dog and Swan, the pub was, until 1611, allowed to bear the coat of arms of the Swann family who lived at Askham Manor in nearby Askham Richard. The 'dog' was a talbot hound - an extinct type of hunting dog whose closest modern day descendant is the beagle - and the pub's name was changed to The Swan and Talbot. The pub and letting accommodation has recently seen extensive refurbishment and is proving to be a popular haunt for many of Wetherby's locals and destination diners. Inside, the pub has low ceilings befitting the age of the place, and at one end, a huge fireplace over which hangs a brief history of how it acquired its name.
