No pretensions here, no food either! Just good beer, great bands on a Friday night and a bunch of very colourful locals! The beer garden is a nice place to soak up the sun in the early evening! If you want food there are a number of places nearby, but it's nice to hind a pub that hasn't been turned...

This is our second visit to this restaurant. Food is wonderful comma and it's amazing to see how well oiled this staff operates. They anticipate they work together and the benefit is given to the client because of this working together. Come see for yourself.

Good local in working fishing village with live music on Friday nights. Popular with the local fishing community. No food served but good Cornish ale, and lively atmosphere. If wanting to eat go to nearby fish and chip shop or Mackerel Sky seafood bar.

I stayed in the swordfish for a few days, rooms are clean and a nice size, staff are great as was the cooked breakfast, the only downside is the noise, it really is a lively pub great if you are on holiday and don't want to sleep before midnight, but for the price which includes the very tasty breakfast it's...

Our first port of call when visiting Newlyn, always a great welcome, fab staff and an atmosphere to match. Our visits to Newlyn are never complete without the Swordfish playing a major part in them. Can't wait to be back there in a few weeks for a 'couple' of pints.

I was surprised when I was told that the Swordfish Inn had been chosen as our b & b on our stop in Newlyn before we took our boat around landsend heading North. I have stoped in Newlyn many times in the past, but not in the last ten years and it used to be like the wild west !...

We stopped here for a night on our way to St. Just with our three children. The room was above the bar, overlooking the seafront. It was clean and warm. The pub was spit n' sawdust, but very friendly. It became more interesting later that night when all the fishermen arrived, still in their yellow oilskins, and clearly very thirsty....

Stayed at this Inn with my wife whilst walking the SWCP. We agree with all that has been said before - Choosing your breakfast the night before & marking a card/the 9.00am breakfast/Restaurant position next to the toilets etc - not idea. The position, staff, room, breakfast etc all make up for this. As we needed to leave early to...

What could be better than finding a room in a small ancient pub overlooking what would have been the old quays of Cornwall's busiest fishing port? Apart from the view being blocked by the modern fish market and the rumble of large and small refrigerated vehicles passing to and from it, this old inn was a delight! I had the...
