I've visited the Black Swan last week with a group of colleagues. Everybody ordered a different meal. I chose the braised pork belly. This was very well prepared. So I would like to promote this meal to anyone who is planning to pay a visit to this restaurant.

We enjoyed our Goan seafood curry though we thought it expensive. Our enjoyment was marred by the two babies who screamed/cried throughout, they were accompanying their parents who along with others were at the bar having a drink.

Gweek is a small village in a byway to the south of Helston on the was to The Lizard. The Black Swan is exactly what you expect of a quintessentially English pub. It is comfortably, quaint, friendly, warm with jolly good Cornish ales and excellent Cornish food. No substandard Cornish pasties here indeed there are no Cornish Pasties. Maybe that... More

On holiday in Constantine with my family, attended tea time during the week and we all had 'a pub meal' which was good. We went back a couple of nights later and I ordered the Goan Fish Curry off the specials menu. It was unbelievable, the best meal I have had in ages. The staff on both occasions were very... More

Booked into the Black Swan for two nights. We were attending a birthday luncheon which was being held in the pub so we thought it would be a good idea to stay there. After such a long journey we were very warmly greeted by Emily who showed us to our bright and cosy room. After a bit of a rest... More
