The inside of The Swan does need some refurbishment with some very tatty sofas. However the food was delicious. We ordered two steaks; a sirloin with blue cheese sauce and a rump steak with peppercorn. Both were charged cooked beautifully and tasted amazing with the sauces. A lovely meal.

Thank you for the feedback and talk about perfect timing....the pub is in the process of losing its deep read colour to a new brighter fresher colour...and...the sofas albeit being comfy, are indeed a bit tatty and are on the list. As are new curtains and an overhaul of the toilets. Please come back soon and experience the same meal... More

Walked in to a lively pub, the young lady behind the bar was really friendly and helpful. The menu is typically British with lots of choice and the quality was excellent as was the quantity, you will not leave this establishment feeling hungry... Well worth a visit you won't be disappointed.😋

I actually live in Carleton and ashamed to say that I rarely eat at my village pub. However, when I do I always enjoy the food. I've had their burgers in the past but this time I had the rump steak. It was cooked to perfection and the peppercorn sauce was out of this world! Best sauce I have ever... More

Visit the Swan late afternoon, live pretty locally but not ventured there before in 18 years 😂 Its a lovely traditional pub, lovely hostess and a menu that had enough Gluten Free options to satisfy any coeliac or gluten intolerant.

A mixed review but thank you nonetheless.
