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.

How to ruin a pub

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... read 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

Visited last time I was in Devon, and found a very poor service level. I was slated by the management about criticising their "kids" on Trip Advisor, so decided to give it another go. Wish I hadn't. Fish and Chips were nearly warm, and my Pizza was flavourless. The service level was no better and the staff were more interested... 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...

Great Little Pub, nice food, reasonably priced, very welcoming of children, we bought a crabbing set for our boys to use off the Quay below the pub whilst waiting for our food and very beautiful views from the Terrace outside the pub.

Found the same welcome from friendly staff, good ales and food well up to good standard. Wonderful views down the estuary with plenty of outdoor seating. Will go again in the autumn.

We went to the Swan Inn as we were looking for a light lunch in Noss Mayo before we went on the 5 mile coastal walk. We ordered two bacon sandwiches and had a pint of larger each. It was a beautiful setting looking over the creek but the service was so so slow. It took about 40 minutes. When... More

Very sorry to hear of the delay in service, we strive to serve all of our customers as fast as possible and always inform customers as soon as a 30 minute or longer wait is called by the kitchen as we are certain in this case. Should any reader of this review have reservations about visiting the Swan Inn then... More

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.
