Helmsley's four-star Black Swan Hotel is a former coaching inn that has been a fixture of the market square since at least Elizabethan times. With an interior that seamlessly combines antiques and contemporary art, the Black Swan oozes character and has 45 individually furnished bedrooms, all named after local dales. The three-AA-rosette Gallery Restaurant overlooks the hotel's walled garden and has a superb reputation, offering a choice of a la carte and Market menus. There are various rooms suitable for private dining and a delightful tearoom and patisserie.
Classic, luxurious and indulgent is everything you expect a quintessential, English Afternoon Tea to be.
Afternoon Tea is available from 12 noon – 5pm and is served in the Tearoom, the lounge and the Cygnet Bar. Advance booking is recommended.
