What can I say...... this pub is beautiful, its kept clean and has the most wonderful atmosphere. the staff and owner were all very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble, excellent selection of beers, wines and spirits. The menu looked amazing and we will be returning next week to try it out! I honestly wish this was my local... More

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

The whole building was clean and very stylishly decorated. We ordered our food and it arrived very quickly. Beautifully presented and very tasty. We all had a drink each, main meal and... More

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
