The Swan Inn

The Swan is a modest, cosy cottage inn that might best be described as a country pub in the heart of Sidmouth. We always serve at least three real ales, including Charles Wells Bombadier and Branoc, a very popular bitter from local brewers, Branscombe Vale. They also brew 'King of Chit', a weaker but tasty ale, exclusively for the Swan.

They have an excellent reputation for food, with a particular emphasis upon fresh fish, supplied daily to the pub. It is often advisable to book.
