Superb 9.0 From 15 reviews

Good 6.0
2 night stay.
Excellent restaurant. Room small but pleasant, but let down by a tatty, pokey bathroom. Only a bath because shower attachment did not work. Issues also with heating; could not turn the radiator off. Staff personable and welcoming.

Tranquility on the way North
This is a real find. Superb food, friendly and helpful staff. Great location. We would stay again, but we had the least good room, no 8, (no shower, and the over bath spray was broken). Our bed was very comfortable and the linen excellent. What a place to break your journey north, or have a foodie DBB. It’s under 10 miles from the motorway.

Black Swan Ravenstonedale.
We had an excellent stay, the food and beers are of a high quality. The hotel is an old building which has been carefully restored/renovated. The bed was comfortable and the room was furnished with old styled quality furnishings. The area is very quiet Car park behind the hotel. Due to BT not rolling out super fast broadband to all premises in Ravenstonedale, The Black Swan has limited Broadband but enough to keep in touch. We will be staying at the Balck Swan again many times as it is a good stop off while travelling North and South on the M6.

Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable Rural Stopover
Just a quick stopover. Friendly and comfortable with cosy feel to the bar area. Decor in room a bit TOWIE and at odds with the rural feel of the country pub and certainly not to my taste but room clean, comfortable ,and functional. V good quality food. 4 real ales on tap but all a bit similar
