Charming pub dating back from the 16th Century just minutes from the seafront, opposite a ford across the River Sid, the Swan is a relaxed and friendly pub offering a warm welcome to all visitors and locals alike. Traditional quality pub food, with an ever changing menu and seasonal specials, vegetarian and vegan food served every lunchtime and evening either in the bar or in the beautiful beer garden with its award winning floral displays.
