Popped in for coffee mid cycle. Couldn't have been more friendly. Even let us sit at a reserved table as we were only going to be there a short time.

Sunday lunch was a spur of the moment thing. So we popped over to Gweek. So delighted and a little guilty for not visiting before. Al Murray would have been beamng with pride! His look alike complete with smart shirt and tie was in residence....More

Our group of five dined in the restaurant on Saturday 28 October. Food was excellent, in particular the Steak, Guinness and Stilton pie: home cut chips are possibly the best in the country and were main reason for our return visit. Pub is always busy;...More

Really good pub dinner with the family. The team at the Black Swan were great and the food was excellent. Will definitely return just so my son can have the chocolate brownie again!

I was pleased to be offered a smaller roast lunch than a standard one. We have been before, and found it well up to standard. However, having had a small main course I was able to treat myself to a dessert. I ordered a sticky...More

Located next to the popular National Seal Sanctuary in the picturesque village of Gweek near Helston. We are in the heart of "Poldark" country and are close to some of the beaches used in the filming of the new and old TV series. Church Cove and Gunwallow on The Lizard are a short distance away and these can be seen in some of the night-time ship wrecking scenes. We offer a wide selection of Cornish real ales including Sharps Doom Bar, Tribute, Bass and Betty Stogs along side another guest ales. The restaurant area has been decorated to give a warm and welcoming atmosphere and we offer a home cooked menu from the blackboards. Every week we serve traditional Sunday lunches which are proving extremely popular - booking is advisable.
