A pub in the heart of a picturesque North Yorkshire village has unveiled its new-look beer garden after a strong first half of the year.
The Wild Swan at Minskip, near Boroughbridge, can now cater for up to 36 drinkers and diners in its garden, on top of the 60 covers in the main premises.
Co-owner of the Wild Swan Alex Bond said: “The renovation of our beer garden is another significant chapter in the recent story of the Wild Swan.
“We have always had tables outside, but our new look beer garden provides a much richer and more attractive eating and drinking experience.
“It is the picture-perfect suntrap, set between the rear of the historic inn and a characterful disused mill.”
Wood-fired pizzas are now served at the pub on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays each week.
A summer menu, together with a new range of summer cocktails, has just been introduced, overseen by new head chef, Jason Bishop.
Alex said the changes come after “an excellent start to the year”.
“Despite the on-going cost-of-living crisis, which has impacted heavily on the hospitality sector, we have been consistently busy.
“We are especially pleased by the number of people who are returning and who are making the Wild Swan their favourite inn and restaurant in the area.”
The pub recently won the small leisure, retail and hospitality business category in the Harrogate Advertiser Excellence in Business Awards.
