Price of a Pint

Post by supervalkoinen » Sun Oct 25, 2015 9:22 am

Friday saw me take a stroll round some of my less frequent city centre haunts. Only yesterday did I realise that for the first time in my life I'd gone from one pub to another, 100 yards away, and the price of a pint doubled.

Boot - Old Brewery Bitter £1.80.
Botanist - Purple Moose Glaslyn £3.60.

Any more extreme differences?

Always think Botanist applies excessive pricing; The Boot (and Falcon) are always best value, if you can live with poor service, low lifes etc !

The last time I was in the Grosvenor Hotel bar they were charging £6 for a pint of handpumped Weetwood Eastgate (I was supping tea). Hopped onto a bus to Wrexham today and had a most enjoyable hour or so watching the antics of the local clientele in the North and South Wales Bank (Lloyds 'spoons) whilst supping a superb pint of Central City Red Racer IPA 6.5% (festival ale price £1.65).

Thanks for the warning - I will go nowhere near it.

The Monday night club from the Cellar will also avoid it on their 'Chester wobble' next Thursday, we are also avoiding the Architect.

Every credit!

I've only ever been to the said establishment once - got stung big time for mediocre tosh.

Lesson learnt.

I was in the Cambrian in Wrexham on Sunday and one local was complaining about the price of the beer. It was £1.50 a pint.
