BELLY RATING: Five out of five
NAME: Mark Best
WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Leeds
RESTAURANT VISITED: The white swan, Aberford
LOCATION: Aberford, between Leeds and York
DATE OF VISIT: 24/01/05
TYPE OF RESTAURANT: Pub
APPROXIMATE COST OF A MAIN COURSE: £12
WHAT WAS THE FOOD LIKE? I had two racks of lamb which was very nice and the portion was massive. My girlfriend had chicken kiev which she says are the best she has ever eaten. The portions at this place have to be seen to be believed.
WHAT WAS THE BOOZE LIKE? A nice pint of Tetleys . Wine is very reasonable from £5.50 a bottle
WHAT WAS THE SERVICE LIKE? Because the food is so nice the place is always busy so be prepared to wait for a table and orders to be taken. Unusually, you pay the bill when ordering food but I didnt see this as a problem.
WHAT WAS THE ATMOSPHERE LIKE? It was good. the smoking policy was smoking allowed everywhere. As a smoker I would have prefered a no smoking area for the non-smokers as I felt my smoke was annoying non-smokers sat around me, but I suppose if they feel that way they should have gone to one of many non-smoking restaurants.
VALUE FOR MONEY? Very good value, huge portions and wine at £5.50 a bottle cannot be beaten. The food bill for 4 people was £49. Y
OUR COMMENTS: Worth a visit . The menu also does chinese food, curries etc as well as the usual pub food. The pub is easy to find on the main street at Aberford
