Yes indeed the Black Swan welcomes dogs especially with well behaved owners. !!! In fact both times we have visited the premises we met a regular dog called Meep who patiently sits on his own bar stool besides his owner.

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.
