A Decade of Sweet Success at The Black Swan Hotel, Helmsley

New Offers at The Black Swan Hotel, Helmsley, to celebrate their 10th birthday. 
The Tearoom at The Black Swan Hotel, is a highlight of Helmsley for all those who love Afternoon Tea, and on the 7th December they celebrate their tenth anniversary. View new pre-Chrismas offers.
Back in 2007, Marco Pierre White was guest of honour to open the Tearoom, which is an integral part of the hotel itself. The antique Grandfather clock tick tocking in the corner, mismatched crockery, linen napkins, tiered cake stands and traditional silver cutlery, all add to the feel of country style and timeless charm, just like Helmsley itself.

Traditional Afternoon Tea is served on vintage fine bone-china crockery, with dainty finger sandwiches, filled with delicious savouries, such as Yorkshire Baked Ham with Mustard Mayonnaise and Cucumber, cream cheese and chive; a selection of melt-in-the-mouth patisserie, with home-made scones, served with a choice of home-made preserves and thick clotted local cream.
