How much???

28 Replies 281 Views Created 30-07-2012

So I'm near the Olympic venue the other day and I pop into the pub for a quick pint.

I walk up to the bar and ask for my pint, the barman serves me and then proceeds to ask for £5.80.

How much I say? I tell him he's having a laugh its not usually that dear,  he then says "sorry didn't know you were a local/regular yadda yadda" and then charges me the correct price.

 

That's just plain wrong. If I was a tourist in there buying a pint and then saw the next man get the same thing for half what I'd paid I'd be mightily annoyed.

 

Talk about profiteering!

I am glad my city grew out of this school like dress code thing for nightclubs. I remember blokes were turned away unless they wore black trousers, a shirt and a pair of shoes. Now you can wear mankini.... in certain nightclubs, not that I would know. I wear trainers, jeans and a T-shirt like most people do, the whole dress code thing is silliest idea in the night club and bar industry.



It gives bouncers free rein to deny entry to blokes and control the female to male ratio more easily.

£5.80? Sounds about right for London xD

 

That's pretty shameful though - I'd've thought if they were the one reasonably priced pub in the area then word'd spread and they'd make up the difference through increased custom.



Central London maybe but not the outer areas, There is one pub in amongst them all that hasn't put up their prices so I hope they catch all the trade the others lose.

Mind you I found an even dearer one £7.20 a pint! (and an £10 entrance fee although that does get you your first pint free lol)
