A bit difficult to find but worth the trouble. Good Beer, friendly staff and nice atmosphere whether you are inside or out in the patio garden. You can learn a lot by just listening in to the locals - e.g. where the best fishing is etc. We had a very nice meal there (fish pie is recommended).

We had evening meals in the Swan three times when on a weeks holiday in Sidmouth and really enjoyed them. The service was haphazard on the first night but once we'd sussed out to go to the bar to order things all was well. The menu was traditional pub grub - fish, lasagne, ploughmans, gammon etc. Nothing pretentious which we... More

The Swan is tucked away about a 100-yards or so from the promenade at the east end of Sidmouth. The menu is varied and the food cooked to perfection. The service is quick and professional. Recommended. Tip: Booking is advisable.

The menu's pretty simple, but the food's well cooked and the service is friendly too. The courtyard out the back is a real sun trap too.

4 hungry adults, 2 hungry kids and a dog. Dogs welcome in the bar but kids not (as it should be) so had to eat outside on a dodgy day weatherwise. Made the serving cut off time with seconds to spare. There are plenty of places that can't knock up a sandwich or charge the earth if they can but... More
