***The Black Swan's country Christmas shopping trip***
Support small and shop differently in 2020
2020 has been a weird year I think we can all agree. So we thought we could do something to support small and support local to wrap it up in the best way possible.
If you book to stay with us in December with our shopping package you will receive a booklet that we've put together of all our favourite small/independent local shops and their Christmas events/ markets/ offers and all their loveliness. You'll also get some shopping related goodies in your room for you to take out and enjoy while you explore some of our local town's best bits! These include shops in the Lake District, Barnard Castle and around the Yorkshire dales national park.
Lots to choose from so you can do all of your Christmas shopping without battling against the queues and bustle of the city in these odd times.
Why not, this year, shop smaller, socially distanced and independent while enjoying everything a lovely break at The Black Swan has to offer.
*December only - mention the shopping deal when you book*

From September we have decided to close our kitchens to non-residents on Tuesdays to allow our wonderful team the time off they deserve. After lockdown we have re-evaluated the work life balance of our Black Swan family and decided that family is always the most important thing to us. With this in mind, we have decided to close our kitchen on Tuesdays to non-residents. We will still serve the a la carte menu to our residents throughout September on Tuesdays and starting from October will be serving cold platters to our residents on Tuesdays only should you wish to eat with us when you stay on that day. All other days of the week we will be serving our normal a la carte menu. If you wish to discuss this with us or you have a booking and would like to enquire as to what this means for you, please call us on 01539623204.
Our cold platter menu will be available online in the coming days.... stay tuned for deliciousness.
We are feeling hot hot hot here at The Black Swan this week and yesterday we were shaken by an almighty thunder storm which would have rivalled any tropical storm! While this heatwave lasts get yourself down to our beer garden and cool down with the chickens. Enjoy our brand new picnic menu on the grass with our picnic rugs available from the bar.
We have had a very exciting week at The Black Swan and we have some very exciting new developments coming along in the next few weeks. Stay turned to our website and social media for the big reveal.
We're taking part in "Eat out to help out". This entitles you to up to £10 off (up to 50% of your bill), Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's in August from all food and non-alcoholic drinks. It's been a really hard few months so let's all get together and enjoy the good times.
