So much more than a Michelin-Starred Restaurant With Rooms

The Black Swan at Oldstead is unique as the only restaurant in Yorkshire and the North East to hold a Michelin Star and 4 AA Rosettes. Tommy Banks' talent as a chef is in itself truly remarkable. He has been Britain's youngest Michelin-Starred chef for two years now and is becoming widely regarded for his ground-breaking innovation. For us, 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 guests you'll see it for yourselves.
