The Inn looked lovely from the outside, and so we decided to have lunch there after visiting the Seal Sanctuary- we were very glad we did! The staff were extremely accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. The inside was warm and comfortable, a classic pub feel with a well-appointed restaurant area, everything was clean and pleasant. The lunch itself was delicious, we... More

We came to this pub for the first time in January and were keen to come back. As before the atmosphere was welcoming and cosy. A proper country pub. Great beers and menu. Everybody chose something different for lunch and we all enjoyed the delicious home cooked food. Staff were extremely friendly. Can't wait for the opportunity to go again.... More

Friends live nearby, so we pass the The Black Swan a lot, this time we booked a table for 5. The food, atmosphere and staff were excellent, pricing was very good too, it was good to find an old style pub, instead of chain ones. The food was very good, a large selection on a chalkboard along with daily specials,... More

I traveled alone this fall to photograph and write about the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek. Before the trip I had to change my dates a few times and Alex was accommodating and very polite. When I arrived, the bartendress offered to help me upstairs to my room with my heavy bags even though she had a full roster of... More

I have visited the Black Swan on a number of occasions and each time received a warm welcome from the landlord. Unusually for this day and age he is invariably in a white shirt, tie and smart trousers, his personal care is reflected in his staff and the cleanliness of the pub. The real ales are of top quality showing... More

Went for a Sunday roast...and it didn't disappoint! Visited many times to the pub/restaurant. Each time is lovely as always! Great staff, service and food! We didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive and everyone at the table were satisfied with the quality of the food.

My wife and I were coast walking in winter and as there is no ferry across the Helford we were forced to walk up to Gweek. The reward was the Black Swan. Comfortable, clean and modern in its level of service and facilities, we had a very pleasant stay. Good food and very welcoming staff. An excellent pre ptepared breakfast... More

The Black Swan is a magic place! It's a small hotel but the rooms are high standard, very nice, clean and equipped. As the only pub in the small village of Gweek, you can feel the atmosphere is familiar, the staff is welcoming, kind and friendly, Alec will always be helpful and will always make you feel home. Oh, and... More
