Description: The Black Swan Tearoom, located in the picturesque market town of Helmsley in the North York Moors, is both charming and traditional, and offers a fabulous quintessentially English Afternoon Tea experience which even the connoisseurs of Afternoon Tea wouldn't be able to fault. In addition to the traditional Afternoon Tea which changes seasonally making best use of the fresh, local produce available, a wide selection of brasserie style dishes are also served making the Tearoom the ideal place to meet up for lunch or simply just a cup of tea and a chat.

We really enjoyed the unusual afternoon tea at the Black Swan, with its wide range of bespoke teas not seen before and change from the usual sandwiches
Sophie and Kirsty really looked after us and talked us through all the options

Visited today as as late Mothers Day treat on the special 2 for 1 offer. We were seated in the tea room and found out that as this was the last day for the offer to be taken they had 60 afternoon teas booked in. not 1 spare table in the hotel tea room, lounge or bar. A choice of speciality teas and coffees, we choose the Black Swan Tea which is similar to Yorkshire tea. The presentation was perfect mismatched china, proper table cloths and napkins. The tea room is spotless and has a great atmosphere. The food was delicious sandwiches, small slice of a very tasty sausage roll, lots of meat. 4 scones, 2 fruit, 2 plain, dish of butter and cream and 2 pots of jam along with salted caramel donuts, carrot cake, passion fruit tart and a yummy triffle served in a small jar! The service was outstanding despite being under pressure Mandy and Kirsty were the perfect hosts, smiling and chatty but not over the top or in your face. Mandy even had the perfect recommendation for the order to eat everything in so you didnt end up to full for the cakes! what a star! a credit to the Hotel. 5 star would definately visit again and recommend you all watch out for the offer every January as we do.

Had a wonderful afternoon tea last week with a friend. Excellent choice of sandwiches, cakes & treats and the friendly waitress service by Kirsty & Mandy was first class, making us feel special. I highly recommend this venue.
