Here’s a small challenge for you – see if you can nominate a pub, in fact any business that has the same level of customer service as The Salmon Tail in Stratford upon Avon.

Earlier this month we were visiting Stratford to see the RSC perform A Midsummer’s Night Dream, which we saw on the Friday night and a great show it was too. As England were opening their World Cup campaign the next day against Argentina we set about looking for somewhere to watch the game. On the way back from town we dropped in at one of Stratford’s few remaining “real” pubs, The Salmon Tail on Evesham Road, on the way out to the racecourse just before the cemetery where Maria Corelli is buried.

The staff and locals were very friendly and told us the pub would be open in the morning, serving breakfast cobs for those who wanted them.  Saturday morning saw us sat in the bar area watching a less than satisfactory victory. Although it was a victory though, it did not taste as good as the bacon and black pudding (specially ordered) baguette I had at half time.
