MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The sign might proclaim ‘The White Swan’ but to the locals this traditional-looking pub will always be the Mucky Duck – so-called because the coal miners used to stop here for a pint on their way home from work. It’s owned by Timothy Taylor’s brewery, so you’re always guaranteed a good pint – and the food is just as satisfying. Tom oversees the kitchen while Gareth looks after things out front. Jars of maturing homemade fruit liqueurs and gins, which they use in their cocktails, sit behind the bar, and a blackboard highlights their upcoming ‘guest chef’ evenings. Concise menus allow the kitchen to concentrate on preparing good value dishes from small batches of locally sourced seasonal produce. Dishes might appear simple at first but have complementary textures and tastes and an impressive depth of flavour; you’ll find some have a playful element too. The cheeseboard with homemade crackers and English truffle honey is a must and there are some interesting wines available by the glass.
