More than just a Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms

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’ talent is in itself truly remarkable. He was Britain’s youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 and won Great British Menu in 2016 and 2017. In October 2017, The Black Swan at Oldstead was awarded the ‘Travellers Choice Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the World’ by TripAdvisor.

Designed and Made in Oldstead

Owned and run by The Banks Family, who have lived and farmed around Oldstead for many generations; The Black Swan is very much their creation, with Tommy Banks heading the kitchen and his brother James running the front-of-house. There’s an “Oldstead” style; plenty of tradition and culture, cut through with a modern earthy, exuberance.

It’s a melting pot of expertise that blossoms out into what is Made in Oldstead; it’s not just super-chefs and wine wizards, it’s agriculture, engineering, design, lots of washing up and a whole team of specialists in Yorkshire humour.

Black Swan Oldstead No.20 in the top 100 restaurants in the country

We couldn’t be more proud of everyone here at The Black Swan for working so hard every day to give our guests such a special experience. Well done team!
