Having refused the set menu of "toad in the hole" and wishing to have something from the menu which was categorically impossible. I settled down to a couple of pints of Ludlow gold whilst the more hungry members of the party tucked into something a budding five year old could rustle up with his eyes closed.
You would think that this would be the end of it, but no there's more, as we discused where a party of six may possibly get a steak ' all at the same time' a tall ask I know!
We were then confronted by the land lady who then accused me of tampering with the till and making her barmaid emotional!
How do these people make it in the service industry I will never know. Is this just another pub on the edge of a slippery slope or in this case hurtling towards the doors closing for the last time!!!
Very disappointed

A traditional lunch served by friendly staff,means we will return again to experience a good, well cooked beef, 'Sunday lunch'.The gravy was especially tasty and the whole meal was reasonably priced.

We were recommended to eat at The Swan by our B&B hosts and it was a very good choice. The menu isn't huge but what there is is good and tasty and very generous on the portion size - we were glad we'd skipped a starter and there was certainly no room for a pud. The girl who served us was very friendly and helpful and Lady Penelope the Persian pusscat was a delight to meet.
