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.

We've just received invitations to The AA Awards in London in September for the presentation of our 4 Rosette Award. It takes a lot to entice us away from Oldstead, but this is something special!
