Gingerbread inspired Tearoom

Visitors to our historic North Yorkshire hotel will be forgiven for thinking they’ve walked straight into the fairy tale setting of Hansel and Gretel this Christmas, following the opening of our gingerbread-themed tearoom.

We are set to transform our award-winning tearoom into a festive gingerbread house, adorned with candy canes, icing and snow decorations from Saturday, December 1st to Monday, December 31st.

Families will be made to feel right at home in the fairy tale inspired tearoom, with hot chocolate to warm the cockles and a chance to build and take home their very own gingerbread houses.

Voted the ‘Top Tea Place 2010’ and a ‘Tearoom of Excellence’ in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, the Black Swan’s traditional Yorkshire tearoom is renowned for its quintessentially English afternoon tea experience.

The Christmas-themed afternoon teas will cost £21.95 for adults and £12 for children aged 12 and under from Monday to Thursdays throughout December, while Friday to Sundays will cost £25 per person and £15 per child.

But why wait until December? The award-winning tearoom is open all the year round with many log fires to enjoy.
