A GROUP of London media types are having an absolute nightmare in a rural pub, it has been revealed.
According to patrons of The Black Swan, near Hereford, the out-of-town foursome looked petrified upon entering the establishment and spent the following hour sitting in the corner, whispering to each other.
Local farm worker Johnny Davies said: “They’re a funny little bunch. They keep taking pictures of the place on the sly and talking about how their tweets from ‘the heart of Brexitland’ are going to go viral.
“I smiled at one of the lads and he looked like he was going to cry. I might not have all my teeth but I’ve at least got manners.”
He added: “I’ve got a sizeable Twitter following too – I like to post pictures of the landscape and bits of my poetry.”
The four, who are on a British ‘staycation’ from their converted office block in East London, briefly mooted the idea of a game of darts, but could not muster the courage to ask the barmaid for them.
One of the group, digital marketing manager Martin Bishop, said: “I’ve never been so terrified in all my life. And I’ve bungee jumped on three different continents.”
