Wighill’s Traditional Country Pub

Your hosts John and Di look forward to welcoming you to The White Swan.  A traditional Yorkshire pub oozing charm and character, serving locally sourced produce in a picturesque village.

Important Information

Having given a great deal of consideration regarding the opening of the White Swan, we have come to the conclusion that it wouldn’t be viable to operate without being able to fire on all cylinders. We have therefore taken the difficult decision not to open until 18th May.

Over the next few weeks we will be updating everyone via Facebook with progress on our accommodation project, our beer garden project, new menu updates and forthcoming diary of events that can be delivered safely. Once again good luck to everyone opening in April.

Both Di and I would like to wish the best of luck to all the pubs opening in April, even though they will be restricted to having an outside offering.

Our newly refurbished kitchen is now open and our new menu is being served. We have built the menu using the best local ingredients from farms, suppliers and producers close to Wighill. Our meat and poultry is from Sykes House Farm and we source fruit and vegetables from Hebdon and Poole Fine Foods.

Our menu is accompanied by the finest Yorkshire cask ales, a carefully selected wine list, lagers and spirits from around the world and a selection of soft drinks. The team welcome you to enjoy lunch, dinner, Sunday lunch or just a drink with friends.

We’ve Made The Headlines!

We were asked by the Telegraph newspaper to give our views on how the lockdown was affecting local pubs and how now more than ever, pubs are at the very heart of our local communities.
