Details

The Black Swan Inn opened for business in 1740 and operated primarily as a coaching inn. Carriages could be rented by the day and horses stabled for those passing through the town. In addition, the yard at the rear of the building was the place to go to hire a hearse with horses and accompanying carriages. Residents included Charles Dickens and Rex Whistler, whose paintings can still be seen on the plaster work of some of the rooms. Many significant events took place in the building. The current dining room once hosted Pickering court house and in 1836, The Black Swan hosted the celebrations that accompanied the inaugural journey of the Whitby and Pickering Railway.

In 2015 it once again became privately owned and so began a process of rolling renovation to return it to its former prominence in the town. With nine comfortably modern letting rooms, a popular restaurant, brew-house and cocktail bar, the Black Swan assures today's visitor of a visit to remember.
