Will Larter left this review about Black Swan

I took in the Black Swan on a cycle ride from Hawes to Helmsley. It was a Monday afternoon, just after 3, but the place was open. No sign of any hand pumps or fonts, but I enquired of the young woman who greeted me if it was ok to have just a beer. She replied in the affirmative and asked me to take a seat and she would come to take my order. Uh-oh, I thought, this is a restaurant, not a pub.

She approached me and asked if I was ready to make my choice. Is there no draught beer, I enquired? No, she said, it's a restaurant not a pub. What a shame, quoth I, that means I'll have to delete it from Pubs Galore, the well-known pubs website. (Not really.)

At the Forresters in Kilburn they have a notice just inside the front door: "This is a pub that does food, not a restaurant that does beer". Well, you can get a beer here, but would you really want to?
