Food

It’s that time of year when comfort food comes into its own, so our new seasonal menu brings you warming food to accompany hearty conversation. So settle in at The Old White Swan in Goodramgate York for some seriously tasty socialising.

New and speciality dishes

We’ve made some exciting changes when it comes to our food. 

While we are still serving up our classic main menu, we are now also a speciality Sausage & Chop House, with a dedicated menu bringing you the best sausages, such as venison & red wine, lamb & sujuk and wild boar & apple, and the tastiest chops, including pork, Barnsley lamb and porterhouse.


Our main menu has something for everyone, whether you want to stick to old favourites, such as fish and chips or a Nicholson’s burger, or go for one of our new additions. This season’s creations to warm you from the inside out include beef, amber ale & mushroom pie, and Nicholson's ale-glazed Shropshire chicken. Or, if you’re craving something lighter, there’s brown rice, quinoa & lemon salad.

A proper meal ends with pudding

Before you step back into that winter chill, make sure you're prepared. Our dessert menu features comforting dishes such as Belgian chocolate brownie and salted caramel profiteroles. Or branch out with one of our new dishes – rhubarb, plum & cherries crumble or lemon tart. After that you'll be ready for whatever the weather throws at you.
