Excellent choice of food and when I said I preferred my fish just plainly grilled this was not a problem. 8 of us ate together and the service was excellent.

Visited August Bank Holiday and was surprised it wasn't busier. Really looked forward to trying the swan, but really disappointed with the service. The staff were lacking the basic skills, that are so evident across at the Ship on the other side of the estuary. It was painful trying to get served and everything was a chore for the staff....

Waited over 1 hour from payment for a simple meal of lasagne. No-one seemed to care very much when we had to chase up the order at the hour mark. Quite pricey too. Avoid.

We went there a week ago with our two children, attracted by the ideal location of the establishment close to the water. We chose to eat inside due to changing weather. The staff was very friendly and careful and I would recommend the pub for a drink for that. As for food, we were quite disappointed after a rather long... More

Although it was not at all busy (only 1 family ordered before us) we had to wait best part of an hour. They said it was freshly prepared but when it arrived it was not 'Quality Food' (as on the sign outside) but obviously all bought in and out of a packet. Why would that take so long, why was... More

We visited The Swan with plans to have lunch before travelling home from our Devon holiday. We looked at all 3 pubs in Noss & Newton - the Dolphin, Ship and Swan. We opted for the Swan as it seemed genuine - big error on our part. Yes, a quaint old pub but there it stops. The food sounded great... More

We stayed next door for week in May. Most welcoming, 3 very well kept draught beers on handpump and good honest tasty food. They provided takeaway pizzas and chips. Lovely views across River Yealm from tiered outside seating areas. New people deserve to succeed. Well worth finding through narrow lanes.

I visited here for an evening meal whilst walking the coast path. It is definitely the best place to see the sun set. We sat by the estuary and enjoyed the sunny weather. The food was traditional pub stuff. I enjoyed the courteous staff and location mainly.

A short stay in Noss Mayo but been back to the Swan a few times . Great waterfront location, excellent pub grub and most importantly very friendly and prompt service . A little gem ....definitely worth a visit when your in the area.
