Oop north for the weekend and used other reviews to find somewhere decent. Can't fault The Swan for food, service, good coffee and welcoming ambience. Try it, you'll like it!!

“Pub Grub !”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Called for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by choice on the menu. Opted for cheese pie / steak& ale pie which were well presented , good size and extremely hot!! Both were served with a hearty portion of veg chips/new potatoes. The price was very reasonable for the portion and quality of food. Would certainly recommend and will be going again. However the dining room is quite modern but the pub bit really is a bit tired and in need of a lick of paint. Great open firplace.

Friendly staff, good choice of meals and local beers. We had the cheese and onion pie with hand cut chips, which was huge but very tasty!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Me, my partner and son go to the swan at least twice a week and the food, service and atmosphere have never let us down. Since the take over of the new landlord the swan has been the best its ever been. The new chef has brought new favours and tastes to Carleton and the take away fish and chips and pizza is a fantastic idea and we have taken advantage of this service and it has never let us down either.
The food prices are not too expensive and for the portion sizes I don't know how anyone can complain!
Our overall rating of the swan is that it is a very welcoming family pub and well worth a visit or two!
