We did not stay at the Swan Hotel as we were staying in Grasmere, thank goodness for that! We booked a meal for the evening and were happy to see that there were two vegetarian dishes on offer, limited but at least they were there. The meal when it arrived! was appalling, our red onion tart, was just a pile of red onions, with cold side dishes of mash and the 'vegetable special' was carrots in orange juice, terrible. The bill was large considering and we were only given ten pounds discount. We will never eat there again and if your a vegetarian, don't go there! We travel a lot, but in the future will avoid the Macdonald sign.
