Food & drink
Head Chef, Scott Fairweather oversees our whole food & drink offering at The Black Swan, working alongside his talented team of chefs to produce a menu that draws in customers from near & far. Introduced into Cumbria’s dining scene at the age of 21, Scott has become recognised across the county as one of the leading pub chefs, known for consistent, flavourful food that is inspired by the pubs surroundings & driven by local, seasonal ingredients. The kitchens main aim is to cook & serve attractive pub food with a creative slant, that expresses individual personality.
Sit down to one of our Black swan signature dishes, a light lunch, main courses inspired by the time of year, or desserts that provide comfort & delight in equal measures. Traditional Sunday Roast Beef, alternative vegetarian options, cakes & bar snacks in the afternoons, handmade chocolates alongside tea or coffee, biscuits in your bedroom & a generous breakfast offering ensures the kitchen is always a hive of activity.
A quick lunch? Family celebrations? Casual dinner?…no matter what the occasion, we keep things very much as they should be in a pub……. super relaxed, with comfortable surroundings and a food & drink offering that leaves you feeling spoilt for choice. We have the option of dining in our bar area or main restaurant & when the Cumbrian weather permits, our courtyard & riverside garden also provide the perfect al fresco setting. Our fantastic front of house team will endeavour to look after your every need.
Our restaurant is very popular & we advise booking in advance, especially for dinner & weekends. Please note, our maximum table size is 12 guests, which have the luxury of a private dining room, although for larger group bookings, private functions or special occasions, please contact us directly to discuss possible options.
