We stayed outside Wells this weekend and stopped off at The Swan hotel for a light lunch and drink. The sun was shining so we took advantage of the superb garden overlooking the Cathedral. As we had had a cooked breakfast we only wanted a sandwich so went into the bar. The choice of sandwiches was good - ham, cheese, beef but my main concern was that my daughter's was made without any trace of mayonaise as she is seriously allergic to egg - even using the same knife to spread butter that has been used to spread mayonaise will result in her being very ill. I explained this to the barman who was absolutely charming and assured me that he would speak to the chef.
The sandwich was delicious and absolutely egg free - which enabled my daughter to enjoy the rest of her day!
So thank you to the lovely barman on duty on Saturday at about 1.00 pm. Next time we are in Wells we will book into the Swan.
