Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent beer served by the long time landlord. Warm atmosphere, dogs welcome, delicious bar snacks. A must if you like comfy sofas, roaring fires, beach views. At high tide it’s about 10 steps from the sea to the bar!

Must visit if you are in this area. Perfect blend of cosy and stylish, romantic and family friendly. Warm fires, with lovely views, nestled right on the edge of this little bay. Could have stayed all day. Lovely landlords and their family are perfect hosts.

We ate here while we were staying in the pub..excellent menu but the choice on specials board was even more appealing. Staff were friendly and efficient and our food was delicious!

We were looking forward to glass of cider on a sunny day. None available on tap, bottles only. The guys behind the bar didn’t offer a decent alternative or appear interested in serving us. Went to the St.Bride’s instead.

A lovely traditional style pub, in a prime position overlooking the bay. Welcome was good and it’s dog friendly. We sat in some very comfy chairs and just had drinks. My coffee was wonderful and I could have stayed for much longer, although I was...so relaxed that I’d probably have nodded off! I noticed that there were a number of board games too, presumably for customers’ use. Couldn’t fault our visit.More

Loved this pub but only giving it 3 stars because it closed at 10 pm and turned away customers. Very surprised by this.

The location is amazing but the current owners have done a fantastic job - incredibly welcoming the service cannot be faulted. The cask beers were really specialand they have bottles of black dragon. Cant wait to come back next year the sharing plates go really...well as a snack with a few beers - very special place!More

I don’t really know where to start. I love Little Haven & have been visiting for over 30 years. When ever we’re in Little Haven we’ve always spent time at The Swan and it’s what made our holiday but sadly not anymore 😞. The place...just has no soul, the windows are dirty and if you want food it’s a tin of sardines (still in the tin!) and a couple of slices of bread. This pub has definitely lost not only its soul but its way. Last night we popped in for the first time on this visit to be told at 9pm that the barman had already called last orders. Whilst he did serve us he proceeded to turn away several other customers- just madness. We’ll be frequenting The Castle & St Brides on this trip and hope that before we come back later in the year that the Landlord sees some sense!More

Minimalist decor, but tasteful. Very few people in there, when many, many more in the other two pubs. Perhaps is the extortionate price of drinks? A friend on our campsite was told, "Everything in hers is expensive mate!?"

I visited this pub during a storm , it looks steeped in history and the building has many stories to tell !! I entered through the narrow double doors into a bar area with multiple lit fires and a welcoming environment. Families sheltering from the...storm with drinks and playing games that are on hand . Great views of the harbour . Not the first time I have been in here , that was 40 years ago and no doubt was very different then . Recommend for a cosy pint , coffee or even a mealMore

Stunning pub with an amazing view of the sea. We sat by a roaring fire for 5 beautiful hours. Delicious tapas menu which was delicious. Very friendly staff and spotlessly clean. Absolutely perfect

It’s so hard these days to find a place for grown ups, tasteful organic decor, cool vibe, good wine list and artisan nibbles/ sharing boards. We sat in front of a log burner in comfy chairs , great cool play list low in the background..., and ate, high quality charcuterie supported by attentive staff. Please keep doing what you are doing. There are enough places catering for the masses . This was a cold March evening so this fab experience is before we even mention it is right on the waters edge in a gorgeous hidden cove , a fisherman’s haven of years gone by. If this was in Cornwall the holiday brochures would be waxing lyrical, but the Welsh would rather keep such finds hidden.More

Hi - due to a number of reasons especially not being able to safely socially distance we have taken the difficult decision at this time not to open.
