I stayed here for 6 nights purely by chance, fantastic place to stay even though it's a little off the beaten track, the rooms are very clean and tidy, the food in the bar is very very good, breakfast is brilliant, cooked to perfection, overall I thoroughly enjoyed the stay and will definitely recommend Many thanks to Alec and all...

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

We stumbled upon The Black Swan after visiting the seal sanctuary - it was only 2 minutes away and dog friendly. The menu is absolutely vast and far exceeded expectations. My boyfriend had the brie and bacon stuffed chicken and I had the mussels and clams which were absolutely stunning! Very reasonably priced, huge portions and wonderfully home made. Even... More

I have to confess that the menu didn't make me go Mmmm on first reading . BUT WAIT ! We shared a bowl of garlic prawns with crusty bread and salad and were fighting for the last one. I ordered sea bass with a fennel and orange salad and my husband had the plaice with local potatoes. I can honestly... More

Bog standard pub grub, staff friendly enough but not a particularly appealing pub inside and not many outside tables and no river views from anywhere in this pub. Quite smart signage and a hungry toddler enticed us in. Had a burger with cheese and bacon, burger didnt taste homemade to me perfectly shaped and too dense, bacon had been in... More

Popped-in for lunch following a visit to the Seal Sanc' with our 3 & 5 year olds. So glad we did, warmly greeted and attended to by a wonderful gentlemen (possibly the landlord?) behind the bar. Excellent food, reasonably priced, in a really lovely atmosphere. Will return (just wish we lived closer!). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We stopped here on our way back to our holiday accommodation having found that we weren't close to any nice eating out places. Luckily came across this lovely place, as soon as we stepped in we were welcomed in. Good choices of drinks and large menu including specials and children's. Food arrived after about half hour and it was great!... More
