The White Swan Inn

Market Place, PICKERING, YO18 7AA

2 rosettes

The Swan is a venerable stone-built coaching-inn, older than many as it dates from the Tudor period, in a historic market town on the edge of the North York Moors. It's run with a clear eye to its role in the community, being a welcoming hostelry for locals, and a prime destination for regionally sourced eating. Darren Clemmit's kitchen regime is all about feeding patrons on good Yorkshire produce that isn't overly mucked about with ('we don't do froths and smudges,' he says). Rare-breed meats from the celebrated Ginger Pig butcher in nearby Levisham, local cheeses, fish from Whitby and veg from the allotment all feature proudly. Expect to start with venison carpaccio, pickled red onion and Yorkshire Blue, or scallops and black pudding with sour apple purée, before being spoiled for main-course choice. Will it be pork belly with braised red cabbage and mash, a dressed whole crab, or a chargrilled item such as bacon chop, lamb rump, or even hake? Puddings bring on sticky toffee or rhubarb crumble, or maybe lemon tart with prunes in armagnac.
