The White Swan

We are a modern family run country pub & inn, on a mission to blend the modern with the traditional. Located in the beautiful village of Gilling West, a couple of miles from Richmond and Scotch Corner. 

We opened The White Swan in 2013, a week before the birth of our second daughter. Following an ambitious refurbishment project, we sympathetically brought the old grade two listed building into the modern age. The newly finished building was not just a pub, but a home for our young family to put down roots and grow. 

Our Story

About Us

We kept the old character of the pub and emphasised it as much as we could with the use of slate, granite, wood and tin. The end result is a relaxing cosy space that can be proud of its heritage, but fit for the times. We have a cosy little bar area where you can snuggle in tub chairs in front of the log burning stove and nibble on some tapas. To one side we have our more formal dining area, set tables where the candle light glitters through the glassware… At the rear of pub is an enclosed courtyard garden, home to our fig tree and kiwi vines. From here you can access our ultra-modern pool and gaming room. Above are the new bed and breakfast rooms, modern and sophisticated… perfect for that one or two night stay.
