Every member of staff at the Swan in Ash Vale, on the Surrey/Hants border has been presented with a new television set - as a reward for selling salads.

The pub is part of the Chef & Brewer chain, which ran a competition over the summer to reward the outlet that sold the most salads.

The promotion was supported by fruit and veg suppliers Fresh Direct of Bicester, and was intended to encourage customers to try something different. The salads created by all the pubs taking part reinforced the brand's commitment to producing fresh, innovative food.

With 118 pubs taking part in the competition, judging was tough and pubs had to include sales information and a presentation on how their salads were marketed, along with their entry.

Salads available at the Swan included a smoked chicken, mango and avocado salad with tarragon and grain mustard vinaigrette; a hot potato, crispy bacon and watercress salad with cherry tomatoes and a blue cheese dressing and a poached salmon salad served with strawberries, cucumber, mint and new potatoes.
