Jack: Hello, Mary! You look great and you have a wonderful tan! What did you do at the weekend?
Mary: Hello, Jack. Well, my parents and I had a long drive to the countryside to Sherwood Forest. My father is very much interested in Robin Hood, you know. Then we had lunch in a vintage inn in the summer garden. It was fantastic!
Jack: A vintage inn? What is that? Is it a kind of a countryside pub?
Mary: Not really. Actually, there are a lot of them, close to many major sights in Great Britain. They may look village-like, but the standards of service are very high and the food is very tasty.
Jack: I don’t find such places amusing. Besides, the prices there are usually huge.
Mary: It is not cheap, I agree. At the same time, a lunch in London can be even more expensive indeed. Where else can you try a traditional pudding or delicious Cheddar Mash after all?
Jack: Still, I do not see any point in driving miles from London just to have a light lunch. What will you do there except gazing out of the window across a village green or a natural pond if you are lucky?
Mary: I cannot agree with you here, I am afraid. Vintage inns are generally located in places worth visiting like stately homes or historic villages or any other tourist attractions and many are close to enchanting walks. It is not only about a meal! As for staying indoors, as I said, most vintage inns have their own gardens and they are ideal to have lunch in in fine weather. That is where I got my tan anyway.
Jack: Well, you seem to have managed to persuade me. Next weekend I am going to Cardiff. Is there a vintage inn close?
Mary: There must be one. If you take a look at the map, you will certainly discover the closest vintage inn.
Jack: It may turn out not as good as the one you visited last weekend, though.
Mary: According to the travel brochure, every vintage inn is different, but they are all the same. They may have different designs and menus, but all landlords and landladies share the same passion for good food and excellent service, believe me!
Jack: Ok, can you lend me the map? I am sure you took one in the inn you visited.
Mary: You know me well enough! I will bring it tomorrow, I promise.
Jack: Thanks.
