Went here after a visit to the seal sanctuary. Have the beef pie with hand cut skin on chips which were delicious as was the pie. Overall standard of food and service was high. Well worth a visit even just for the chips.

I had a relaxed late afternoon Saturday lunch. The service was excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. My meal was generous and very tasty. Happily plenty of choice for vegetarians i.e. not just mushrooms! Thank you Black Swan - happy days.

Went to the Black Swan after being told how Good it was. Gweek was a bit hard to find but once there we found a cosy pub restaurant. Nothing fancy about the menu but quite a good choice of food.

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.
