£7.50 a pint seems excessive to me -can they really not sell it at £5 and make a reasonable profit ?

so 7-50 for john smiths extra smooth ? ( if that's what they still call it ) Funny but been to York hundreds of times and never used a bus.  I could forgive punters at Carlisle Grin

I wouldn’t have thought so, Mano. I’m in the Midlands and it’s a fiver a pint. When you’ve took all the overheads into account there isn’t much profit in a pint. I’m guessing there will be around 100 bar staff to pay at £100 a day each, so there’s a few quid to cover there.
Londoners must be paying more than that already? I was paying £6 for a Magners down there fifteen years ago. Would dread to think what that would be now.

A bar in the city of London sells Guinness for £18 a pint and Carling at £13 i'm told.
Its normally full of Students who need a pint after sitting in the road all day to protest against the Oil.
The they sink a few pints which are delivered by Brewery Trucks that need Oil to get around, thanks to Daddys allowance .

Been to this meeting about 4 or 5 times for all 3 days. Last time about 6 or 7 years ago,

Found it to be reasonably priced and the ticket was only £82 for all three days in the posh bit.

Bus straight back to the centre.

Prob value wise one of the best meets there is for a top class course with good racing.

According to my calculations that means that it would cost the average Englander £30 to get pissed LaughLaugh
Report s.kenbo May 17, 2024 5:51 PM BST
Agreed. 24 cans of Guinness sounds about right!
Report s.kenbo May 17, 2024 5:52 PM BST
There can’t be many products that vary so much in cost. £20+ for four pints in a pub or a fiver for four cans at the supermarket.

Had a country pub in the North East. A pint of real ale was £1.75 when sold it in 2001.
Live in West London now and the nearest spoons sells a pint of Ruddles for £1.79. Unreal.
Normal pubs around the £7/8 mark. See plenty little groups having a drink outside bottle shops tho, unsurprisingly.

Barry Hearn was doing his nut about that on talksport, he said if they don't cut it down to a fiver a pint, they might take the competition elsewhere

I'd like to know what they pay the bar staff.
