For us at The Black Swan, it's much more than just Michelin Star food. The focus is all about where we are and who we are - a reflection of "Oldstead" - traditional Yorkshire with a swirling mix of creativity and eccentricity. We design and build most things ourselves. Whatever it is, it's us, and as our guest you'll see it for yourself.

Chef, Tommy Banks was Britain's youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 and won Great British Menu in 2016 and 2017. The Michelin-starred Black Swan was awarded The Best Restaurant in the UK 2018 by The Food and Travel Magazine and the 'Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the World' by TripAdvisor, in 2017.
The menu is inspired by the ingredients that we grow and forage in and around Oldstead. We have a 3 acre kitchen garden where we grow a large proportion of that appears on the menu. There is also the Banks Family's farm less than a mile away where the larger scale crops are grown. Working around the seasons results in some incredible flavours developed by fermenting, pickling or prolonged ageing.
