This establishment from the outside looked like a good place to have a quick lunch, but never again. The staff behaved as if they didn't care if there were customers or not. The food from the kitchen suffered the same problem, it's as if nobody...More

Sunday roast was still available until 20:00. Despite advertising pink roast beef, our host checked before admitting it was well done by that time. Room was comfortable and clean as was the pub. Good beer. Easy access car park.

Food terrible and tasteless and overpriced for what you get. Everyone on our table said we would never eat there again. Service also sloppy. Give this place a definite miss.

A pub for more than 400 years, The Swan and Talbot in Wetherby was once a posting inn on the Great North Road. Originally named the Dog and Swan, the pub was, until 1611, allowed to bear the coat of arms of the Swann family who lived at Askham Manor in nearby Askham Richard. The 'dog' was a talbot hound - an extinct type of hunting dog whose closest modern day descendant is the beagle - and the pub's name was changed to The Swan and Talbot. The pub and letting accommodation has recently seen extensive refurbishment and is proving to be a popular haunt for many of Wetherby's locals and destination diners. Inside, the pub has low ceilings befitting the age of the place, and at one end, a huge fireplace over which hangs a brief history of how it acquired its name.
