Dropped in on chance it was quite busy , Tuesday lunchtime, seated promptly in pleasant dining area.. Prompt service and a varied menu. Enjoyed the meal and the surroundings, it really is old without being tacky. Will be back for more.

Excellent home cooked food in a cosy, warm and friendly old fashioned pub. Good selection of real ales and wine. Reasonably priced. Really pleased to see it open again, nicely refurbished and doing well. Brilliant asset to the town just what's needed.

Ye Olde Whyte Swanne is a good old fashioned traditional English pub and the oldest in Louth! Our comfortable bar is the ideal place to enjoy a selection of cask ales, draught beers/lagers and ciders as well as a range of wines available by the bottle or glass, tea, coffee and soft drinks. We also have a relaxing lounge to the rear of the pub where you can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat. All our meals are homemade and locally sourced where possible. We have a wide range of dishes from traditional pub food, Sunday roasts and a Specials Board. You can also enjoy al-fresco drinking and dining in our beer garden The Ye Olde Whyte Swanne is known as being the oldest pub in Louth, established in 1612 and there are rumours that the pub may well be haunted!
