Quinno _ left this review about Black Swan Inn

Lovely Characterful Waddies pub. Dog leg shaped, enter via a porchway to a riot of wartime era ephemera - hanging brass kettles, tommy hats, plates, clocks, stuffed birds, tin signs, upright piano (tuned?). This continues into the room off to the left and the bar (dimly lit) off to the right. A dining room is beyond. Fairly quiet and completive atmosphere aided and abetted by a better class of instrumental music. Make sure to take a trip out into the courtyard, the old coaching and stables area. This has been wonderfully converted to a cobbled side garden with pool, pinball, and air hockey in the old stables. Also note the old gypsy carts at the rear, plus an al fresco bar. Talking of bars, there were four ales – Waddies 6X and IPA, plus Black Sheep and a super St Austell Liquid Sunshine which was easily the best condition beer of a long days crawling. This really is a must-visit pub, I could have stayed for hours.

The Black Swan is a largish pub on the market place and it is a Wadworths tied house i had a drink of Henrys IPA there was also a couple more handpumps on the bar.
I think this pub still operates as an hotel,the pub was really busy at about 2.00 in the afternoon so i was surprised that it was'nt open all day as i passed it a bit later in the day and it was shut.
