Spent a Covid re-arranged week in Noss Mayo and booked the Swan for our first nights meal. We both ordered the fish and chips and were not disappointed. The fish was pure white and plentiful with hearty chips and pea puree. All in all a...fantastic meal and good value. We were not rushed to leave the pub, as per the only drinking if you are having a substantial meal new rule. However, the same could not be said for some of the locals, which was a shame given how the virus has exploded in Devon recently.More

We arrived early on a Sunday morning, as part of walking the South West Coast Path. We weren't sure if they'd be open but we got hot drinks and the friendliest of welcomes. Blankets brought out to the outdoor seating area overlooking the river, and...a good chat with the landlady. What a lovely place!More

A lovely cosy pub lunch on a windy wet day. The food was to a delicious and high standard and the service exceptionally friendly and attentive.

A very attractive, cosy, pub with well spaced tables. An open fire was a nice feature on a wet day. Both meals we had, ham, egg and chips and cottage pie, were delicious and good value. Service was prompt and friendly.

Stopped off for drinks after a long walk. Sat outside on the terrace next to the chiminea. The food smelled great so ordered the fish stew and fish burger - tasted amazing! Great view over the estuary. Brilliant service. Looking forward to returning :)

We are staying in the area and it's a nice walk around the bay to eat out. Not sure if it was the full menu due to Covid but could not Co. Plain, good food, big portions, was shutting for renovations this week so not...worth commenting on decor 😁More

Lovely varied menu, unlike many other places during Covid. I had a superb Italian fish stew and my husband had bubble & squeak cottage pie which was equally as good. To finish I had hot home made chocolate brownie with summer fruit and ice cream....It was amazing! We ate out 4 times during our holiday and this was by far the best!More

Lovely. Very mediterranean style offering which I didn't expect but enjoyed it (linguine gamberi) and the service was bang on.

We stayed for a week right next door to the Swan, the service was spot on, the beer spot on and the food was great. Well worth a visit to this nice friendly hostelry!

Grest food served here, and they did a brilliant take away fish and chips. Good value for money and well worth a visit., An asset to the village for sure.

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.
