The Good Food Guide

Nestled away in the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors National Park, The Black Swan at Oldstead is a family run, Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms serving some of the finest food you will find anywhere. Created a decade ago by the Banks family, who have lived and farmed in this part of the country for many generations, The Black Swan as received national acclaim, including five AA Gold Stars, four AA Rosettes, a Michelin Star for five years in a row and most recently achieving 28th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants.

The Black Swan is run predominantly by sons Tommy (Head Chef) and James (Front of House) and a dedicated, knowledgeable team. Tommy is a hugely talented chef who has made Oldstead a must-visit destination on the culinary map. Many ingredients are either from the extensive kitchen garden or foraged close by with emphasis on a short journey from field to plate. His commitment to local sourcing adds great authenticity to a seasonally changing menu. The flavours are inspired by the local area and are indeed unique to Oldstead - produce from the hotel's own garden, local lamb from the valley, even cocktails with ingredients from the neighbouring fir trees.

After a fabulous meal, it feels wonderful to toddle back your bedroom in the quiet, south-facing wing. Each of the rooms features quality antiques, stylish soft furnishings, pocket-sprung beds, LCD TVs, broadband and luxurious bathrooms with beautiful cast iron roll-top baths, walk-in wet-room shower areas and Molton Brown toiletries. There are also newly-opened rooms in a lovely Georgian House with period features and a pretty garden only 50m from the main house.

  • “The service was outstanding - nothing was too much trouble... The setting and the building were outstanding but the food was even better.” Phil, York
