The White Swan is a family run Village Pub, in the heart of Yorkshire serving excellent quality home-cooked food, made from fresh seasonal ingredients, cooked simply and to perfection!

The business is built around the idea of only serving, what we as a family, would consume ourselves.  Consistency and quality means that many customers return time after time.  The family closely watches all aspects of the business, down to the smallest details, ensuring customer satisfaction.  Ideally located just 3 miles from the A64 and 5 miles from Historic Castle Howard, making us an ideal spot for a break in your journey, whether you’re just visiting or passing through.

Thanks to our customers, we are one of the most talked about Pubs in the area.  So the next time you are passing, please feel free to call in and see us – whether you’re just calling in for a pint, a quick sandwich or to sample our Full Menu, we will be happy to make your experience memorable.

Why not choose to dine “Al Fresco” in our south facing Beer Garden, weather permitting?

We look forward to welcoming you soon, to The White Swan, Thornton-le-Clay.
