MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One Star: High quality cooking

Hidden away down country lanes, the Black Swan is owned by the Banks family, who've farmed the area for generations. It’s centred around a characterful little pub with exposed beams, flagged floors and an open fire: downstairs is the setting for aperitifs and coffee, while upstairs is a simply but pleasantly furnished restaurant with candlelit tables and a laid-back feel.
The appealing modern menu takes on a tasting format and is driven by produce from their farm, garden and local hedgerows. They use an array of preservation techniques to ensure these ingredients last, which results in dishes with bold contrasts, plenty of depth and very little wastage. Preparation is highly skilled, flavours are harmonious and presentation is attractive – and every wine on the appealing list is available by the glass.
The antique-furnished bedrooms have private patios.

Gastronomy & Sustainability


"Sustainability is at the core of our ethos. We source most of our produce from my parents’ farm, which uses sustainable farming practices (30 acres is dedicated to the restaurant), and the rest of our produce is sourced from like-minded suppliers. We hope our restaurant can make a positive difference."

— Tommy Banks
