How do you deal with overly chatty bar staff?


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?

    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.

    A good answer, I didn't understand how the guy couldn't read the signals. He was an ex policeman, you'd think he had a bit of sense.
