Had sunday lunch here, I believe that it one of the first that they had tried. The Swan is small so the atmosphere is good. No one rushes in this part of the country, which suited us. Dogs are allowed and surprisingly they all agree...More

It was a wild evening, admittedly, but our first test, as non smokers, was running the gauntlet of several people huddled in the entrance puffing on their fags. The pub is quite small and one area was dominated by the biggest TV screen I've ever...More

Staying on holiday nearby we thought we would check out this little pub for lunch. We were looking for a taste of the sea which, surprisingly doesn't seem to be the focus of most of the local eateries. It was great to find fresh well...More

Drinkers pub overlooking the Yealm River estuary. Some food, outside tables, buzz atmosphere spoilt by playing radio one unnecessarily.

The Swan is one of three pubs in the immediate vicinity, all of which border the estuary. Out of the three, The Swan is probably what I would term a 'boozer' or proper pub. Very friendly and helpful, young staff, good selection of ales, lagers...More

We have popped into the Swan a few times on our week in Noss Mayo, and the welcome has been unfaltering. Whilst we haven't eaten, the pub itself has a friendly local feel, and we (including our three dogs) were all made to feel very...More

I don't know about online. Perhaps Google could help? However, I walked past it yesterday and can assure you it is still there and still has a big black dog annoying customers...

Yes we do have free wifi for customers. It is difficult to get mobile reception locally and we are the only pub to offer wifi for customers here. We also offer pool and a simple menu of pub style food.

The Swan Inn is a great British pub where you can get a bite to eat throughout the day. With fabulous views over the River Yealm estuary there is no better place to relax and enjoy a glass of your favorite tipple. Our menu is proper pub grub with a varied and seasonal offer. We are not a fine dining outlet with overpriced and undersized portions but offer good English grub at fair prices. We love to cater for family's and welcome man's best friend inside provided he is clean and well behaved. If you want your food and drink dropped into your mouth through a solid gold pipette then look elsewhere.
