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.

We visited here a few times while staying in Noss Mayo. We were made to feel welcome, both the kids and the dog were happily catered for. The inside is a little battered, but if it is nice weather, best to sit outside overlooking the creek. The staff were friendly and helpful, the drinks were reasonably priced and there were... More

The pub is in a pleasant location with views over the estuary and with its own, popular pontoon which can accommodate two vessels. In addition, the staff are courteous and apparently attentive but that is where the positive qualities end. Nothing happens very quickly - it took 50 minutes for the first course of soup-of-the-day to arrive and then possibly... More

Visited the Swan with my family this week. Location is fantastic, it was relatively quiet when we visited so we went down to the seated area which overlooks the river. It's south facing so we got the sun the whole time we where there. Although it was not busy (15 people max) food took a while to come, at one... More

Utterly hopeless. Visited twice, once for drinks, once for food in the evening. Should have realised that we shouldn't attempt food here when it took 15 minutes to get a round poured in any empty pub. When we returned in the evening for food, we waited over an hour to get it. It turns out that others around us had... More
