A Traditional English Pub meal in short supply

If you travelling to try out the variety of food in English Pubs

JD Wetherspoon has upset customers by serving pigs in blankets without their blankets at pubs across the UK. The pub chain said it had problems with its meat supplier. In October, the British Meat Association (BMA) warned that pigs in blankets may be in short supply this year due to a lack of seasonal EU workers across UK meat plants. BMA chief executive Nick Allen told the BBC then that wrapping cocktail sausages in bacon is done by hand. "Pigs and blankets are a very labour intensive thing to make and we're short of labour," he said. "If it is something to do with that then it comes as no surprise." He added that meat supplying companies are "chasing their tails" to try and keep up with orders from shops and restaurants.

Hello Philip Another spectacular walk. We really enjoyed Wales. All accomodations were great especially the Druidstone--lovely place and I think we had the best room in the house--top floor--balcony sea view. We may come back and stay a few days. First day of walking not hard but WINDY and wet. Rest of walk was in beautiful sunny weather. We did find some distances a bit off on hike descriptions ie from Marloes to Druidstone is 15 not 11 but we made it and it made the hotel even more special!! We hope to find another walk perhaps again a coastal one in Devon / Dorset area You do a great job and I have certainly reccommended you to many friends.
