We decided to go to The Swan for a meal as it was a lovely evening and we know they have a delightful garden as we have eaten there before. Unfortunately most of the tables and chairs were covered in bird poo and they seemed to be short on staff. Stupidly, we still ate there and the meal was mediocre at best. My husband had tiger prawns to start - these had been incinerated beyond belief and there was hardly anything left to eat. The service was poor and we had to go looking for someone in order to pay the bill. There are plenty of nice places to eat in Hay and we certainly won't be returning to The Swan.
