The Ladies Who Lunch review of the Barge Inn at Honeystreet beside the Kennet & Avon Canal got the following response in an email:
My parents went for a meal at the Barge — but they would never have had anything like 'The Ladies' in your article had!
They just went for something safe like a Ploughman's, which they said was great. But then you shouldn't really get a Ploughman's wrong.
Needless to say their account was very different to that in the article... but not without complaint though: when they commented about feeling cold they were assured it was "in the plan" to improve things (not sure what, short of heating the place).
They said the chap that served them was brilliant.
