Lunch at The Swan Inn, Rowberrow
As we are a larger party and to keep the time for lunch on Saturday 4th to a shorter time, The Swan Inn have asked us to place our food orders in advance. Please make your choices from their online menu (Link: Swan-Inn-Premium-Lunch-Menu) and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 26 August. This is important or you will be watching others enjoying their lunch!! As we are planning a fairly short lunch break to maximise the time at Wookey Hole, could you please keep lunch food to a main course only.
We will issue maps of suggested routes between the locations nearer to the time but there is no obligation to follow a specific route.
