Looking for great pub food in Goodramgate York? Our menus combine hearty classic British dishes especially for the season with all-year-round favourites - the ideal excuse for sharing time with friends in The Old White Swan 's characterful walls and welcoming atmosphere.

Especially for the season

Our autumn-winter selections are all about uplifting flavours, vibrant colours and comforting textures. Enjoy starters such as warm brie fondue topped with Nicholson's Pale Ale chutney. Then move on to mains including home-breaded chicken Kiev with an oozing garlic-and-parsley butter centre. Our cottage pie for two is perfect-to-share, slow-cooked mince beef, diced carrot, parsnip and sliced celery, topped with creamy mashed potato.

Loved all year round

Our autumn-winter menu also includes established favourites. Such as line-caught cod fillet with skin-on chips, venison and red-wine sausages served on creamy mashed potato, and classic beef or chicken-fillet burger topped with smoked back bacon and mature cheddar.

Add your choice of cask ales

You'll also find an unrivalled range of cask ales, including 25 guest ales, painstakingly selected to match the season and the food we serve.
