Exceeded expetations - Rating 5/5

Nice location, nice pub, good room lovely and quiet. Very nice staff and had a great dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Slept like a log. Parking right by the door, what more could you want? Good price too.

Fabulous! - Rating 5/5

What a hidden gem. Not far off the A66 and Penrith and definitely worth the detour. We were made to feel very welcome, our rooms were comfortable and the pub itself is friendly with a good choice of beers. We had an evening meal and this proved to be a great decision as the food was amazing! Very tasty and good sized portions, we were certainly well fed. Breakfast too was excellent. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice evening on our way to Scotland- Rating 5/5

A lovely evening at the black swan again. Comfortable bedroom, warm atmosphere, lovely food at dinner and breakfast and a warm welcome from Jackie and her staff. A place we would recommend to everyone

Lovely traditional family run pub with rooms - Rating 5/5

We stayed overnight on the way to and from a wedding in Scotland and would certainly come back again for a longer stay. It is an ideal base for exploring the Lake District and within easy reach of the motorway.The family were very welcoming and fitted us in for an early dinner despite having a large party booked in. On our second visit we were able to relax in the welcoming bar while browsing the menu for dinner.The food at dinner and breakfast was good and the service was friendly and efficient. The arrangement of preordering breakfast ensured that it arrived promptly and hot when we came down in the morning.We stayed in two different rooms on our visits.Both were cosy and comfortable but we particularly liked Room 7.It is good to see a family run pub like this and wish them continued success.

Excellent - Rating 5/5

Stayed for one night in this excellent hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and the evening meal and breakfast very good - even though we couldn't quite manage all of the evening meal.

A Great Recommendation - Rating 5/5

The Black Swan was recommended by our friends as the place to stay when visiting the Penrith/Lake District area. Accommodation was excellent, plenty of room and warm. We stayed just one night, and ate in the restaurant, our compliments to the Chef Steve, for both that meal and Breakfast the following morning. Jacky was a great host, both behind the bar and at Breakfast. A Great Recommendation!
