We had a pub lunch, and the barman kept butting on our conversation. I'm sure he thought it was being friendly, but we wanted a quiet meal, not a lesson in local history. What would you do in this situation?

Oh dear! Sounds like a nightmare. Thanks for your answer.
Very sensible. We felt a bit trapped as this guy was the owner, his daughter was cooking our meal. Luckily the food was excellent, but we won't be going back.
For some reason owners tend to be the worst offenders, probably since they can't be reprimanded for wasting time. He was probably just bored but that is no excuse.
