About The White Swan Inn
A warm welcome awaits.
At The White Swan Inn, we love sharing the joy of good food with everyone who steps through our doors. Our kitchen team are passionate about flavour-filled dishes using the best local ingredients from right here in Yorkshire.
From our marmalade to famously-creamy ice creams and daily breads to the ketchup or mayonnaise you dip your hand-cut chips into, everything is homemade in our kitchen if it can be - even the black pudding. Our menus change frequently with availability and to complement the seasons, meaning fresh tasty food all year round. This is more than your average pub grub but we steer clear of froths and fads! Proper food we like to think.
Our restaurant has proudly held AA Rosette accreditation every year since 1997.
Lovely to be able to come back to The Swan after so long. The food was up to its usual standard and the standard of hospitality was as good as ever.
My family and I had a really lovely meal on boxing day The White Swan has just been refurbished and they have done it proud We were welcomed into the dining room to see a lovely log fire, very Christmasy , the service and food were first class I would recomend The White Swan and will look forward to booking again next year
Just moved to Pickering first place we have been for a meal. So pleased we chose The White Swan excellent meal and top service we'll definitely be back 👍
Fantastic once again, can’t fault anything
Great all round. Thank you for making us so welcome in these difficult times. We will be back!
Our hideaway room was really spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We had an amazing 2 nights at the White Swan Inn. The food was great! The best fish & chips we’ve had in a long time. Cannot find any fault with the full english, set us up for the entire day. They have the best salt & rosemary ciabatta starter. The lamb and sea bream mains are definitely worth it and a must try, along with the sticky toffee pudding & creme brûlée The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome & comfortable. We highly recommend the food & accommodation at the White Swan Inn and we’re definitely going back!
A great Sunday lunch with good wine and friendly service.
Lovely lunch from a slightly limited menu. Great service and friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help, deserving of a gratuity. Atmosphere somewhat affected by the necessary spacing and on my visit by two very noisy uncontrolled children. I have booked again, it was a pleasure to eat out at such a fabulous spot.
The food was amazing, especially the Yorkshire puddings. everything looked and tasted home made and the restaurant had a lovely ambience with all the log fires on. Beautifully decorated too. The service was very friendly and prompt. Can't fault it
Stayed for two nights with evening dinner and breakfast. Pleasant attentive staff and really enjoyed our stay.
We went to The White Swan Inn for Sunday lunch and every element was cooked to perfection. One of the best Sunday lunches I've had out in a long while and I thought the price was reasonable considering how fantastic the food was. It's very cosy inside and love that there are dog friendly dining areas. We sat in the snug and the fire was going - it was a really lovely afternoon.
Great hotel, nice people, delicious food.
Sadly, the experience did lack atmosphere but this was more to do with COVID 19 restrictions and the impact on customer levels.
Blonde haired waitress (didn't get her name) was brilliant. Food was delicious and lovely atmosphere.
We really enjoyed the breakfasts and evening meals. The service was excellent, the food tasty and plentiful and the restaurant maintained its atmosphere, whilst adhering to all the Covid regulations.
The food is absolutely beautiful and the restaurant is an ideal place to unwind and forget about the world for an an hour or two. Very Covid Secure as well!
We felt safe and well cared for. An enjoyable break.
As always we had a lovely meal at the White Swan. Excellent service, charming dining room, fabulous food perfectly cooked. Many thanks to you all
Obviously excellent chefs, pudding unusual and delicious. Thought a la carte menu uninspiring, know it’s difficult at present, a bit of lateral thinking necessary.
I was lucky enough to be selected for a complimentary stay at the The White Swan on Sunday 18th with my Husband. We are both NHS workers. I have never been to Pickering and it is lovely! We drove from Newcastle through the Moors and stunning scenery. Pickering is charming and welcoming. We were greeted by lovely Staff at The White Swan, and checked in to a fabulous room, with a huge raised four poster bed with its own steps. The room was large with settee and chair and every comfort. The bathroom was spotless and clearly measures had been put in place to keep everybody Covid Safe throughout the Hotel. We enjoyed a lovely drink in the cozy bar, complete with log burner, and were treated to an amazing meal. I had the Lamb and it was beautiful, my Husband had steak which he said was exceptional. The wine was delicious too. The room and bed were comfy and quiet and we enjoyed a relaxing evening away. I cannot thank the Staff enough for their lovely service, everybody was welcoming and we will definitely return. Thank you so much to you all, I and wish you all well in these uncertain times, keep up your amazing hospitality and we hope to return soon.
Beautiful food. I had hake which was cooked perfectly as was my husbands steak. Very friendly staff. I little expensive as you have to pay for sides i.e vegetables and salad etc. But the quality was excellent
Fab service and fab service!
We enjoyed all three courses of our excellent meal. The only slight downside was I thought the wines very expensive
Absolutely fantastic, staff were very kind and attentive, food was excellent. Would recommend!
Lovely food very pleasant staff
