Yep, that's about the going rate in my part of the world too.
I will, however, admit to being slightly taken aback recently when I was charged £8.90 for a pint of Hoegaarden and a glass of Pimms and lemonade. The best part of a fiver a drink in a regular pub! Hey ho, after a few more I quickly forgot my concerns. :)

In t' club tis £1.35p for a pint of Thwaites and £1.60p for Carling.Stella slightly more expensive at £1.74.
You can still get a pint of Sam Smiths bitter for £1.26 and Aylingerbrau lager for £1.50 in a pub.:ok:

It's good to live ooooop north.:ok:

1.44 for a pint of Carling & 1.26 for a pint of Tetley’s, about 2.40 for Stella.
Very reasonable me thinks?

Stella Artois, AKA "Milk of Amnesia" £2.65 here.

What is it with Stella bloddy Artois? Here in Belgium there are three bog standard lagers which dominate the market - Maes, Jupiler (from the same brewers as Stella) and Stella itself. If you watch what people take home from the supermarket, it's about 50% Maes, 40% Jupiler and 10% Stella.

Anyway, over the bar I pay €1.20 for 25cl of Maes which works out at £1.54 a pint.

€3.70 for a pint, €3.00 for a very nice bottle of red.

Vive La France!! :ok:

25 Czech Koruna for a Staropramen or a Pilsner Urquell (thats about 58p).

It's a lot more for any imported stuff but why anybody would choose Stella over the local beer is beyond me!!

And EZY flights to PRG are CHEAP too.
We found good accommodation at a very reasonable price, and were welcomed by all the locals that we met. Lovely place, lovely people (provided you keep a very sharp look-out for pick-pockets. We suspected that these were not native Praguers.)

PS the beer is the best we have tasted, even better than Danish Tuborg. It IS available in the UK (but costs much more!).

£5.50 for a glass of Dry White House Wine, £4.00 for a pint of Stella :(

Nada, zip, zilch, not a sausage, free, gratis and for nothing.... :ok:

My local is a good mate's brewery and I find it embaressingly difficult to pay for a pint....:O


27th Sep 2005, 06:29
Awww Minty i'm flattered :O

Be thankful I wasn't on the Rioja, that's £6,50 a glass!

I ould buy the same botte in Sainburys for less than the price of a glass!

My local is in the corner of the living room. Beer is free. So is Scotch - the landlord pays for everything. The catch is, you have to invite the landlord round to your own local in return...

...and he can drink much more beer than you can ;)

Beer varies depending where you ship it in from - say 3 quid a litre and Glenlivet around 23 quid a litre. (Ardbeg and Talisker are kept in special 'reserve' storage for honoured guests only.) There seems to be definite advantage to living in a 'dry' country. :suspect:

£5.50 for a glass of Dry White House Wine, £4.00 for a pint of Stella

Yer could purchase two bottles of wine for that and still have change.
Therefore save money for the rotary flying, you know it makes sense: why put yer hard earned cash in anothers pocket?

27th Sep 2005, 08:54
Beer varies from Youngs Ordinaire at £2.35 a pint, Tongham TEA at £2.40 through to guest beers like Stairway to Heaven at £2.50 and Wassail at £2.90. Guinness is £2.95 and all the nancy-boy Lagers, Stella/Carling/Grolsch are >£3.05.

Needless to say, the Youngs turns over alarmingly quickly and is always kept beautifully.

All this and excellent food from the inestimable "Bat & Ball". Wish I had shares in it, although I seem to have invested an awful lot of my spare cash there already.....

Still remember the time I bought three pints in a normal pub and handed over a fiver and they said it wasn't enough. De Hems in Macclesfield Street, 1989. Hate to think what a pint costs in there now. It was ponce boy strong lager, but a bit risky ordering a pint of real cask conditioned bitter in the West End in those days. Three pints of Boddies comes to less than a fiver round here in 2005.
