Yorkshire Pub The Black Swan Voted Best Restaurant in World

A Family-Run Yorkshire Pub Has Been Voted the Best Restaurant in the World

The Black Swan at Oldstead in Yorkshire was just voted the best restaurant in the world! The village pub, based in the North York Moors, was given the honour of first place in TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice awards based off of an international poll of customer reviews.

Along with a Michelin Star, the family-owned pub boasts four AA Rosettes and is run by chef Tommy Banks and his brother James. Of the honour, Tommy, the youngest chef to ever be awarded a Michelin Star, added: "what makes it really special is that it's been awarded because of feedback from our customers."

So, what's on the menu?

The Black Swan's tasting menu is £95 and features pea and elderflower, squid "dressed in horseradish juice," lobster with onion and gooseberry, and turbot with strawberries and cream. Priding itself on being "traditional Yorkshire with a swirling mix of creativity and eccentricity," the restaurant's menu is awash with fresh seasonal produce from its three-acre kitchen garden.

And the response from customers? "A tantalising trip for the taste buds. This restaurant is truly a box of delights. The flavours, combinations of ingredients and skill in putting together the menu are joyous." We're sold.
