We live in the lizard and someone had told us how good the Sunday roast was so we went down one Sunday to take a look!! It was the best roast dinner we have ever had! The meat was perfectly cooked (beef) and the veg was amazing along with the roast potatoes and gravy!! We have been back twice since!!... More

We stopped here before going to the Seal Sanctuary(which is fab). We were very pleased we did, the menu is lovely, the food is freshly cooked and delicious especially the scallops which were on the specials board when we went. The staff were friendly and helpful, the pub itself is a nice setting too. The only issue for us was... More

Excellent village pub, with one of the best B&B rooms I've stayed in - would put many a hotel to shame. Have to say a word about the shower too - normally B&B showers are pokey little plastic affiars, but this one was huge and you didn't have to move around to get wet! Great pub style food, good beer... More

We have been going here 2 or 3 times a year for over 20 years and seen it change hands at least 2 times. It is an improvement on previous owners having changed its name from the Gweek Inn to the Black Swan and reducing clutter around the bar has made the bar area seem much more open. We do... More

Popped in for Sunday lunch, made to feel very welcome. Cheese and nibbles on the bar which I haven't seen in a pub in a very long time, the landlord was even in a shirt and tie (which is normal apparently). 5 roasties, 3 decent sized slices of meat, home made yorkshire, 4 fresh veg and gravy that actually tasted...

We stayed for 4 nights and had an excellent experience across all aspects of the service. This is a village pub with 4 modernised and well appointed B&B en-suite rooms, it is not a 4 star hotel. However, everyone was very friendly, the rooms were good and were serviced well each day. The food and beer was good, with the... More

Hosts Alec, Wenna & team are extremely friendly & welcoming. Rooms are spacious, clean, new carpets & a fantastic en-suite with extra large shower. The fee of £80 per night includes breakfast (very good bacon!) & we felt represented excellent value for money. We stayed for 3 nights & visited Lands End, St Michaels Mount, Falmouth & St Ives -...

Booked through Late Rooms (or some such). When we stay there again we will book direct, as all the rate goes to the hotel. There is a car park at the rear with about a 50m walk down a few steps to the rear door. Made very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. Pleasantly furnished room with good storage... More
