The food in this lovely old coaching inn is going from strength to strength under chef Darren Clemmit., who serves up a terrific menu of generous, satisfying dishes free from cheffy froths and flourishes. Try spring lamb with spinach, Puy lentils and watercress, poached Whitby hake with minted new potatoes or Plum Pudding pork – a rare breed from neighbour Tim Wilson of Ginger Pig fame. To finish, consider chocolate cake with clotted cream and boozy cherries or a plate of Yorkshire cheeses. You can eat in the flagstoned dining room with its mighty fireplace and deep-red walls or in one of the pleasingly comfortable bars (country furniture, newspapers and magazines provided). A fine wine list and a sensible children’s menu mean the White Swan has something for everyone.
