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.

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

This is a small pub with a friendly atmosphere. The food is pretty good and is reasonably priced and the menu is quite varied.
