    Hello.
    If you are to visit Frome again, please make sure that you visit The Three Swans, arguably one of the country’s most extraordinary pubs.
    It is a real eye opener, and a great gift to the town. Utterly original, amusing and exquisite.
    King St, top of Cheap St (that’s the pretty one with the little open sewer running down it).
    Not open mon tues wed thurs lunchtimes.
    Try it! Best Chris
