The Black Swan Information


The Black Swan has been standing since the 18th Century - believed by many historians to be the oldest pub in Alnwick. We want to do justice to such a special building and historical legacy by making The Black Swan a truly special pub. We take great care to keep the charm and beauty of the structure while offering a modern, casual and friendly experience. Our team are passionate about great hospitality, earning us a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for our pub. We believe that traditional British taverns are one of the foundations of British culture, and we work hard to make The Black Swan a beloved retreat for both local regulars and visitors from further afield. Traditional touches such as our weekly Sunday roast give our establishment a real family feeling. Our rooms are a unique place to stay, modern and comfortable with all the essentials but full of the charm of the ancient building. Every care has been taken to ensure that our rooms have everything you might need for a pleasant, restful stay. We have three rooms for rent in the upstairs floor of the tavern, each with a double bed and stylish decor. Each room has an ensuite with wash facilities: two have a shower, and one has a luxury jacuzzi bath. The shower rooms are £60 per night while the luxury suite is priced at £80 per night - great value for an unforgettable stay in this unique building. Each room is fully equipped with all the appliances which make your stay a happy one: hairdryer, television, etc. We are pleased to provide all our guests with free wifi, plus a range of tempting breakfast options to help you start the day feeling good. Please do let us know if you have any special requests or requirements - we'll do our best to provide what you need for a great stay!
