Further Information

Sitting most appropriately at the junction of Burn Bridge Road and Malthouse Lane, right beside the crossing over Crimple Beck, the Black Swan is a handsome, pre-1900s half-timbered pub with buckets of charm. The Sunday roast sees The Black Swan in Harrogate’s Burn Bridge area swarming with visitors from out of town and, being in possession of a child-friendly menu and atmosphere, this classic British gastropub is popular with families too.

As for the restaurant housed here, the kitchen is manned by a staff that pride themselves on ’being chefs, not microwave technicians’ and this expertise – and wry Yorkshire humour – comes through in a fantastic menu of traditional and contemporary pub-grub classics, all made with fresh produce from the many local suppliers on hand. Tuck into classics like the beer-battered fish and chips, bangers and mash or go for another favourite like the Southern fried chicken burger or one of The Black Swan’s pizzas – no matter what you choose, we’re sure you’ll be coming back for more. To guarantee a table at this Harrogate institution, booking in advance is recommended.

Friendly staff, good food. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. The menu is varied and there was enough choice to suit everyone in our party including the children. They particularly enjoyed the huge desserts!

Great hamburgers and a good selection of ales. Tuesdays is burger night and features a deal on burger with a selection of ales. Kids menu with a good amount of choice ranging from kids burger or fish fingers to a pizza. Good service too, friendly and efficient.

Visited for Sunday lunch. Excellent food and service. Huge portions and yummy deserts. Family friendly with 2 children under 5. We will definitely return again. Only negative is that we were sitting right next to a couple of dogs and my husband has a dog hair allergy. We will make sure we mention this next time we book as I'm sure given the level of service the manager will ensure we sit somewhere this wouldn't be a problem.

Food was very nice, staff were nice, Dragon Chicken starter very big enough to share between 2 people. Only negative point that I had , I had to ask for menus after sitting at our table for 10 minutes. They have changed a policy that the menus are not on the table, they are to give you them when you approach the bar.

Great food, friendly staff and a warm and homely atmosphere. Had an excellent family lunch here. The Black Swan burger is always a favourite. Also tried the steak and blue cheese pizza this time which was delicious! The salads and sandwiches always contain good quality ingredients too.

Pleasant airy causal pub with superb outdoors space for both adults and children. Very solid menu, tastes to please many and at a fair price. Food is excellent, all boxes ticked for quality, presentation and enjoyment. Service fine, a tad disjointed. A very safe bet for all ages.

We have been to The Black Swan before but not for a while. It is so much better since the new menu was introduced. We all enjoyed a lovely meal in a very friendly atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone.

Extremely good food - perfectly cooked - fish and chips was the best we have eaten in a very long time. Would have given the restaurant a perfect score but a steak ordered, although beautifully cooked, became cold as the plate was not fully heated.

Great, quick service. Pizzas for the kids, burgers for us, simple but tasty! Would recommend the brownies for pudding! Great outdoor beer garden & play area for the kids - perfect for a hot summers day!

Took a group of family and friends to the Black Swan to celebrate my Birthday. We all really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent - especially considering we were such a large group.

Food was ok but seemed to have come mostly out of the freezer. Staff are friendly and efficient. The pub doesn't seem to have changed much - decor etc all the same
