Welcome to The White Swan

The White Swan is a large friendly and relaxed public house, boasting excellent quality, value for money food from our extensive menu. Our enthusiastic staff are ready to welcome you to the pleasant surroundings and make your stay an enjoyable one.

With three dining areas situated around the grand central Oak Bar:-

  • The choice of plush furnishings and crisp white linen of the ‘Dining Room’ (bookings required)
  • The large ‘Lounge Area’ presents a softly furnished area with plump carpet underfoot creating a sense of cosiness which compliments the oak beams and obscure vintage artifacts that hang incongruously around.
  • The ‘Local Bar’ offers an informal drinking and eating area with an open fire.

We are located in beautiful surroundings and are only a stones throw away from the outstanding Ampleforth Abbey.

We are open 7 days a week, serving food 12-2:00pm Mon – Sat, 12-3:00 Sundays, 5.30-8.30pm Mon – Thurs, 6-9pm Friday, 5-9pm Saturday & Sunday. The bar is open all day Saturday and Sundays. Call us on 01439 788239.

Dogs are welcome in the outside area and in the public bar.
