The White Swan
At the foot of the Howardian Hills, near Castle Howard and just ten minutes from Monks Cross shopping centre, The White Swan is an inviting traditional pub offering tasty homemade food. The pub boasts a warm dining experience that sees customers returning time and again. The chef makes sure that all produce is locally sourced where possible, and everything here is homemade. The menu features freshly made soup and bread, local meat and game, and the traditional Sunday roast is unmissable. Perhaps start by sampling Doreen’s black pudding, cooked in homemade beer batter and served with wholegrain mustard mayonnaise. The chef’s background working with pastry makes the steak and ale pie an irresistible main course. It’s made with shortcrust pastry and is served with seasonal vegetables and hand-cut chips – it’s perfectly complemented by the White Swan Ale. To complement the food, try a flavoursome local real ale or perhaps a tipple from the tempting selection of wine.
