Homemade food.

We read lots of good reviews about the food so we book a table. Lots of good choices are in the menu, it was difficult to decide what to have. We had a starter and a main each, but we share the dessert because the portions are generous and we could not eat more. Lovely homemade food, tasty... read more

Lovely old-style pub. Visited it a few times and the beer was always excellent. Had a meal here which was really good. Thoroughly recommend.

Visited whilst on holiday one evening, pub was very quiet and not much atmosphere but girls serving were very friendly. Had fish cakes which were fairly nice, chips were lovely and a nice bowl of salad. All in all not bad.

We were staying with friends who live locally and they recommended this 'pub' for dinner. We stopped by late in the afternoon and booked a table for dinner. This is a pub which serves food in a separate restaurant area. The staff were extremely friendly, the food was good - I had Blanchebait (whitebait) and I think it was the... More

We were fitted in at short notice, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Would definitely go again as there were a good few items on the menu that we fancied and had a hard time making up our mind.

The Swan is round the back of the main area of Sidmouth and it is not a tourist pub but it is very friendly and welcoming. We ate here and the food is good home cooked pub fare but very well done. Portions are generous and I regretted my starter. Mainly Youngs beer on but well kept. There are gardens... More

decided time for a pub meal and had booked earlier in day. Welcomed by bar staff and shown table. Extensive menu selection but self ordered. Portions generous and we had only one complaint in that we felt too full to sample desserts even sharing. Lovely atmosphere suggests we will return during w future visit

Had been recommended to try the food at the Swan Inn because of their good menu, however upon arriving with my husband and our 4 month old son in his buggy, we were rudely shouted at across the entire bar 'no children'. We were then told we could eat outside in the smoking area! With a 4 month old baby!... More
