Just had a lovely meal at the Black Swan. Hadn't booked but table found straight away without any fuss. Very tasty and well cooked food which was served very quickly. Landlord and staff excellent - very welcoming and friendly. Nothing too much trouble - recommended!

Stopped by for an early lunch it was a wet and windy day however the log burner was lit, the welcome warm and friendly and the choice of homemade sausages outstanding. We ordered cracked pepper pork sausages, mash, peas and gravy, yummy not a bit left, the Doom Bar was well keep also, will return for sure

The staff in this pub/ hotel were so friendly and welcoming. We arrived quite late after traveling from plymouth and the landlord made us feel very much at home from the minute we arrived. We had a really relaxing stay and the hotel room was so light, airy, clean and comfortable. I am so glad we chose this hotel and... More

We decided to stop in here as it was recommended to us as being dog friendly and having read reviews on here thought it was worth a visit and we weren't wrong. We arrived about 6.15pm on a week day and luckily there were plenty of tables, just a few locals at the bar. We were welcomed very warmly and... More

We shared a bottle... More

Nice local pub with a great friendly relaxed feel, good food - some items can be a little pricey but always had a good curry or Sunday roast and kids meals are a good size :) families are welcome and my kids played pool whilst waiting for dinner.

Pleasant meal (although the plates were a bit too hot - minor thing easy to fix) in friendly surroundings, with excellent service and friendly locals. This felt relaxed and welcoming, unlike some of the more touristy spots locally. A very decent pint of Doombar also. Bravo Black Swan.

Nice traditional style pub. Came across this pub passing through Gweek and stopped for lunch. Food was very nice and a good selection on the menu. Would recommend the steak and ale pie. Children were welcome. Friendly, helpful staff. A very pleasant experience.

Came here for a family lunch based on all the positive reviews but wasn't overly impressed - the food was okay but nothing special and pricier than expected for a pub lunch. The pub had a vibe of being very much a locals pub and bar staff took a while to pay us any attention on arrival. On a positive... More
