Best pub around - we’re so lucky to have this as our local. Really warm and welcoming atmosphere from Loren and Pete and the food cooked by April is just sensational. Quality produce cooked to perfection The entrecôte steak was so tender - like cutting butter and the green beans with garlic absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to try new menu. Thank you black swan team.

Thank you so much for an absolutely fabulous meal tonight! We had a party of 9 which started as a party of 4, then 6 and a newborn… April was accommodating from the start. We were welcomed by the lovely staff, served excellent drinks (clearly lines are cleaned well- very good pint 🍺 👍🏻) then had the most delicious Sunday Lunch… plenty meat, delicious crunchy veg! Credit to you April. Delicious! You’re a credit to the pub. My mum is sooooo picky as she has a degree in home economics and can cook but your food was outstanding. We have and will continue to recommend you to everyone. We shall certainly be back. Lovely pub, lovely atmosphere, lovely staff and all round lovely lunch! Our neighbours and kids are booked in next week! Good for you April! You’re skilled! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely delicious food, French inspired menu that didn't disappoint. Food was hot and so tasty (and plentiful) service was great. The Black Swan in Wistow has been revived. Will definitely return.
