I was with a party of Welsh Rugby supporters in Hereford for the weekend that Wales played England in the 6-nations finale 2013. We had been told that we could reserve a booth to watch the match on TV. I asked the man who was opening up about it - and he was taken aback by my question. "How can we possibly organise that?" he asked me. "It would be chaos." It was my turn to be taken aback later - twice. Once when we saw a booth had a RESERVED sign on it, and on leaving, a blackboard advertised the reservation service. Other than that, there was a good atmosphere and the food was fine. Limited to just one real ale being on offer, though. I'm glad Wales won!
