The Swan Inn is a great British pub where you can get a bite to eat throughout the day. With fabulous views over the River Yealm estuary there is no better place to relax and enjoy a glass of your favorite tipple. Our menu is proper pub grub with a varied and seasonal offer. We are not a fine dining outlet with overpriced and undersized portions but offer good English grub at fair prices. We love to cater for family's and welcome man's best friend inside provided he is clean and well behaved. If you want your food and drink dropped into your mouth through a solid gold pipette then look elsewhere.

Very basic pub - limited lunchtime food & so slow!

Visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The pub appears to be slightly run-down & offers a very limited (but cheap) lunch menu (basic burgers & sausage/bacon baps) - Us & another table of 3 were the only ones eating but it took 45 minutes to deliver any food (though they did say they were short... read more

I've been coming down to Devon for many years but have never been to Noss Mayo. What a beautiful little village. We parked up in the car park and meandered our way along the side of the river. Absolutely stunning, the sun was shining so we decided to call in at the Ship initially but to be honest it looks... More

We spent a wonderful 3 nights in Newton Ferrers and visited The Swan Inn 2 out of the 3 days. On the Fri, my husband, myself and our black labrador enjoyed a meal inside. Dog treats were on the menu for our 4 legged friend and we enjoyed the fish and chips and lasagne, both were hot and tasty. The... More

Noss Mayo is so quaint it can command high prices, the Landlord at the The Swan has opted for good value bar meals, this isn't gastro pub, but the fish and chips and veggie lasagne and drinks for 8 came to 120 quid, significantly less than the prices at his neighbours. Good service and bar games! A proper pub.

Stopped here during a long walk in the area with wife and our dog. Took advantage of their offer of BOGOF sausage baguette, also had a couple of cokes. Excellent value and lovely view on outside table.

After a long coast walk, it was a great location for lunch, care needed regarding the tide !. Fish and Chips can be recommended, non fatty crips and sensible portions, coffee is good too.

I often visited the Swan before they had a fire some years ago. I recently did a coastal walk and as the Ship was crowded walked around to the Swan. It was deserted, I thought I'd walked into the wrong place for a while. The rebuild has been done terribly. The rooms have been knocked through to make one large... More

JUST WHAT HAS BEEN RUINED EXACTLY? This "reviewer" clearly does not know how to use Trip Advisor. If they had taken the time to read the description of the pub on this very website complete with pictures of the interior then their memories of some previous format and décor in the pub would not have been disappointed. That is the... More

Living fairly locally (25 minutes away) I decided to try the Swan today after a long walk. The location of the pub is really nice and overlooks the creek. We ordered a couple of drinks and 2 pizza's with a side dish, which came to 30 pound. The bar man was very friendly. We waiting about an hour for the... More

I am disappointed to hear that this reviewer did not enjoy our pizza's during their visit. As we do not know what variety was ordered it is difficult to assess what may have gone wrong as we receive high praise for our pizza's almost always. It is likely that they ordered the stone baked pizza which was a line we... More

We come down to Noss every autumn for a week or two, and the Swan's been through a few changesover the years. Reviews seem a bit mixed, but we had a nice unpretentious lunch last week after a really nice welcome from the young bar staffer at opening time ...accompanied by her boyfriend's handsome blue-grey staffordshire terrier, who provided some...
