we attended the black swan today for a meal, after friends recommended the food. After being greeted by who I presume was the owner, we took seats in the back dining room near the kitchen. I loved the atmosphere of the place and the oldy worldy touches. After placing out order at the bar, we were informed that the burger was off the menu, so my partner chose fish and chips instead. As we sat down for a chat, the barman delivered what we knew was our order to the kitchen (as only we were eating in that area) and the reply to the order being read in the kitchen was "I'm not f****** doing that!". After hearing this I was rather shocked, as I don't believe that it is appropriate language or conduct when customers are in ear shot. The food however was lovely, and the portion sizes were huge and clearly great value for money. Just a shame the experience was slightly soured!
