The Black Swan Tearoom
Market Place, Helmsley, YO62 5BJ
Opened by Marco Pierre White in 2007, this traditional tearoom offers a quintessentially English afternoon tea experience and a wide selection of brasserie-style dishes. Visitors travel from far and wide to indulge in specialities such as maple and stout-cured gammon with a fried duck egg and beef dripping chips, and salmon and cod fishcakes, with buttered spinach and hot tartare sauce. The afternoon tea is luxurious, with dainty finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, and some truly mouth-watering cakes. You can choose from over 20 types of tea, including the hotel’s unique blends, as well as plenty of coffees and the additional option of Champagne to accompany an extra-special afternoon tea. Pop in while staying at this gorgeous historic hotel, enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea in the walled gardens, or meet a friend for a leisurely lunch. Whatever the occasion, you’re sure to fall in love with this beautifully British tearoom.
