    I think you are being a bit unkind. Although I can sense your disappointment, this is not actually the fault of the Swan, more of Southwold Town Council who changed the Lights switch-on day 4 week ago from Friday to Saturday, which caused huge problems everywhere in the town. Normal dining is impossible under the strains that "Lights" imposes, and it looks as though you were warned as soon as was possible. I am nothing whatsoever to do with the Swan or Adnams, but hate seeing bad reviews when I feel they are not fair.
