Popped in without booking and had one of the best Sunday lunches ever. Quaint pub with roaring fire. Portion too large for me but my partner ate his and quite a lot of mine! The young lady serving us was excellent - charming AND efficient And the view of the cove and the bay beyond was fantastic.

Right on the beach. Imagine it would be sooooo perfect in the spring/summer. Olde world charm with a modern twist. Must book. Car park a few blocks back. Clean and welcoming. Service attentive. Small menu but delicious and home prepared/cooked. Nice organic vegetables served. Only criticism, my main course could have been warmer. Lovely atmosphere. Special evening xx

Lovely little pub Visit one - lunch on a Friday, very cosy inside and posh fish and chips plus hot pot well received, portion size was a little small for the cost but then again perhaps pudding orders were being encouraged. Visit two was breakfast on a Saturday - slightly disappointed that it was a little chilly inside, Welsh breakfast... More

Ate here last year just after the new owners took it over and it was very nice. A year on the place is exceptional. Good friendly attentive service, great wine list and amazing food. Dogs welcome in the bar and that is no understatement - the owner gave our four legged friend a bowl of beef brisket that I would... More

It has been my best experience about Welsh restaurants in a week in Pembrokeshire . Fish , meat and also starters were deliciously prepared. Tasty and high quality products.

Visited LIttle Haven for the first time in a few years. What a wonderful surprise to find the Swan Inn so beautifully renovated and offering an interesting menu, with locally sourced fish and other items. Welsh cawl with Welsh cheddar and fennel bread, and smoked haddock chowder both delicious and homemade. We visited at 2.00 pm on a Wednesday in... More

This pub offers a more quality dining experience which is mirrored in the prices. However, I'm happy to pay for good quality food and I thought the food here was excellent. An interesting range of food as well, lovely warm dining experience - however, book ahead.

I had not read an reviews about the Swan Inn before our trip to Little Haven, and just expected pub food when we ate there. I was pleasantly surpised by the quality of the food, it really is restaurant standard and not overpriced at all. The atmosphere at the Swan Inn is really friendly, and the staff are so helpful...

Very poor service. Food measly for the price we paid. Attitudes of owners very dismissive and seemed to only care for locals very elitist. Avoid at all costs not worth the trouble.
