The Black Swan at Oldstead, North Yorkshire
Surrounded by glorious National Park countryside, The Black Swan was rated as one of the top five best value restaurants in Britain by The Sunday Times Food List. Adam Jackson’s dishes are innovative yet unpretentious and draw heavily on Yorkshire produce. As well as the a la carte and set menus, Jackson offers a seven course tasting menu for £70 (£65 for vegetarians) and daily changing ‘specials’. The dining area is full of character with antique furniture and oak floors and food can also be eaten at the bar or on the tables outside where you can fully appreciate the magnificent Yorkshire landscape with a pint of local ale.
