Useful information


To the locals, ‘The White Swan’ will always be known as ‘The Mucky Duck’ – named after the coal miners who would stop in on their way home from work – and to this day it remains a traditional place where you’re guaranteed a laid-back atmosphere and a good pint. Jars of homemade fruit liqueurs and gins sit behind the bar, and a blackboard highlights their upcoming ‘guest chef’ evenings.
Tom oversees the cooking while Gareth looks after things out front, and the concise menu allows the kitchen to concentrate on preparing good value dishes from small batches of locally sourced produce. Dishes might appear simple at first but have impressive depth of flavour – and you’ll find some playful elements too. The cheeseboard with homemade crackers and English truffle honey is a must, and there are some interesting wines available by the glass. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
