A proper pub serving proper pub grub. Visited here today and had haddock and a steak dish. The steak was huge and the haddock (with homemade tartar sauce) was cooked to perfection. Combine this with a welcoming barman and you cant ask for more. Will definitely be returning for more.

For the twenty odd years that we have kept caravans in East Devon, our biggest regret has been the lack of real pubs - This is one. Not spit and sawdust but a warm, homely place where you can stand at the bar, sit in the window, lounge in the garden or find a more formal food table in the... More

LOCATION This pub is off the beaten track, but well worth looking for. Parking is close by which is essential in Sidmouth. The weather was fine and we started in the beer garden, which could benefit from some plants and pots, but was rustic. STAFF We had a birthday celebration for my mother at this venue and the staff were... More

The Swan produces possibly the best salads in Sidmouth. Try the crab and prawn salad. It is superb. My husband recommends the ham and egg too. Service is good, food excellent and prices very reasonable.

This is my favourite Sidmouth pub, especially at lunchtime, when the most perfect local crab sandwiches or, better still, baguettes are to be had, garnished with a generous helping of fresh salad, and washed down with a half pint of the local ale. Bliss!

Found this pub on TripAdvisor before a day trip to Sidmouth and it didn't disappoint. The pub was busy with regulars which is always a good sign. We ate superb, sandwiches which had a really fresh salad on the side and we also had lovely cheesy chips. It's a very friendly pub which also welcomes dogs. Could not fault our... More
