Popped in for Sunday Lunch with my in-laws & husband. Luckily we had booked because it got very busy! A good range of ales available. We had to order at the bar because we weren't eating in the main restaurant. The food was really good!! Portions were huge!! Highly recommend!!

A great place to visit, manages to be a cleaver balance of good food and drinks for visitors and also locals, with friendly helpful staff and a good vibe it's also dog friendly. Prices for food and drink are very reasonably, all in all I wish it was my 'local'

A friendly welcome and great food will help you enjoy your stay at the Black Swan. This is a great Hotel in a very small hamlet in the middle of Cornwall. There is a large car park at the rear with a small garden area as well. We were greeted by the owner Alec who had taken the time to... More

The Black Swan serves food all day and of a very high standard. So you can easily come here at 3pm and have again meal. Do think about it if you are going to the seal sanctuary or even after a drive to the lizard. Ring them up if you want Sunday lunch to avoid disappointment as it was packed... More

Lovely pub in tiny village run by a chap who really knows his business. Drank and ate here 3 times during our visit to this delightful part of the world and could not have been made more welcome. Make sure you reserve a table at weekends because the word seems to be out!! Congrats to a great establishment.

Visited here yet again for lunch after a visit (yet again!) to the Seal Sanctuary. I love this pub and it reminds me of my home village pub - not where I currently live, though. You can always guarantee a warm welcome and lovely food. The fish is the best and freshest I've ever tasted, which is a great compliment... More

We stopped here for a drink on the way back to our holiday home. We were made welcome by the staff, and were dealt with promptly and efficiently. All the staff were well turned out, and we noticed the manager was making sure all the guests were being looked after. There is a disappointing lack of seating outside, and if... More
