The Black Swan at Oldstead

From the fields and hedgerows...

Inspired by the ingredients that we grow and forage

For us at The Black Swan,

It’s much more than just Michelin Star food. The focus is all about where we are and who we are – a reflection of “Oldstead”- traditional Yorkshire with a swirling mix of creativity and eccentricity. We design and build most things ourselves. Whatever it is, it’s us, and as our guest, you’ll see it for yourself. Chef, Tommy Banks’ talent is in itself truly remarkable. He was Britain’s youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 and won Great British Menu in 2016 and 2017. The Michelin-starred Black Swan was awarded The Best Restaurant in the UK 2018 by The Food and Travel Magazine and the ‘Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the World’ by TripAdvisor, in 2017. Tommy, James and their parents Anne and Tom were joined by Matt Lockwood to establish a new restaurant, Roots York in the old building of The Bay Horse on Marygate in York. Roots opened in September 2018 and is sister to The Black Swan, carrying the field to fork ethos into its small sharing plates restaurant. Bringing a little bit of Oldstead into the city.
