Established for over 500 years, the iconic Black Swan Hotel sits right in the heart of the North Yorkshire's prettiest market towns, Helmsley.

The cosy four-star, 45-bedroom historic property is one of Yorkshire’s finest privately-owned hotels, full of charm and character, and right in the heart of the town’s bustling marketplace. Interiors are inviting and stylish, including contemporary influences to highlight the hotel’s many original features, which include several open fires and crooked dark oak beams.

The hotel has a wonderful long-held reputation for both its dining and award-winning tearooms. ‘The Gallery’ Restaurant boasts 2 AA rosettes. Enjoy hearty seasonal fayre, conjured up by Head Chef, Matt Tyler, whose culinary expertise has been honed at renowned hotels, which include Gilpin Lodge, in The Lakes and Foxhills in Surrey.

‘The Gallery’ offers a wide selection of delicious menus, inspired by the hotel’s rural location, offering the finest Yorkshire produce served in traditional British dishes, with a modern twist. Their speciality is ‘sharing dishes’, such as Chateaubriand and Beef Wellington for two.

One of the unique features of the hotel is their charming award-winning tearoom, located within the walls of the hotel which serves the most delectable array of teas, including their own Cygnet range of teas, and other refreshments. Traditional English Afternoon Tea, delightful patisserie, as well as light meals and snacks are all winners here.
