The Black Swan refurbished its restaurant area to create the perfect ambience for its clientele. The Banks family selected 52 Artisan Neva oak chairs with leather upholstered seats - giving comfort and style to the seating within the Michelin Star restaurant. The Neva chairs have also been chosen for the family's other restaurant - Roots, in Marygate York.
The Black Swan has won many accolades and was recently awarded Best Restaurant in the UK 2018 by the Food and Travel Magazine as well as a 2017 accolade from TripAdvisor as the "Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the World". The Chef Tommy Banks was Britain's youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 also winning the Great British Menu in 2016 and 2017.
The wood seat version of the Neva chair won a major interantional design prize in the prestigious Red Dot Awards for their appearance and design.

"We have always admired Treske’s furniture, so we turned to them for inspiration in conceiving a new style for our restaurant at The Black Swan. We were delighted to discover the Artisan Neva chair, which fits perfectly with our idea of creating a dining room experience to complement our chef Tommy's unique modern cooking."
