Thread: £6.50 a pint WTF

  1. #1

    £6.50 a pint WTF

    Iím in London for an interview with Polish Embassy for Visa & residents permits for family.

    We went in the nearest pub to the hotel, ordered a beer & double G&T, £20.25 WTF. These London types earn far too much!

    Which part of Poland are you going to live in?
    Iíve been to Hel,Wrocław & Warsaw - we love it there - no family purely for leisure
    My German neighbour who travels there for work put us onto Poland as a travel destination about six years ago
    No wonder youíre moaning about London prices lol 😂

    When the average rent around here is 1600 a month for a basic 2 bed flat, we donít really care about the extra quid on the price of a beer !

    I work in central london. Over the course of last year, the prices have risen rapidly. I bought a pint and a glass of wine from a pub near my office when pubs could only serve people sat outside -came to £18. That round would previously have been £12, tops. It is hardly a fancy place, just a bog standard boozer. I asked what was going on and they basically said they had to hike prices to stay alive, and that does seem fair to be honest. Things don't seem to have dropped back down tho.

    There are cheap places tho. Sam Smiths pubs (Chandos, Cheshire Cheese etc) are still very cheap, and of course there is always Wetherspoons whose prices bear no relation to anywhere else.

    Are the pubs quieter? Surely at a certain point people will stop going if they're paying £18 for two drinks

    Sounds like a conspiracy to me.

    You know Christmas is coming when you pay £6.00 for a German sausage roll and £6.50 for a pint of suspect German beer

    Do you mean a German sausage roll or a sausage/wurst in a breadroll or bun? I can't remember ever seeing sausage rolls in Germany. No doubt they exist but are perhaps not ubiquitous.

    It’s the same in restaurants too. Most main courses have risen 2 or 3 quid at every place. Almost impossible to find a main course under 10 quid now when just a year or two ago you got things for 7/8 quid

    If it is any quieter I've not noticed it. Soho in the summer was absolutely rammed when they closed off the streets to traffic and put additional outdoor seating outside in the road. In the ones around my office in the West End it is still pretty busy. Actually went for a drink on Friday last week and we ended up giving up as we were queuing for a good 10 mins. I'm off to a German restaurant/cafe tomorrow to meet some friends and a litre of beer there is £13-£14.50.

    On the money thing: as the OP says, we are all minted anyway so it doesn't really matter; or living costs are so high it's immaterial. One or both is applicable to everyone. But seriously it has reached a point now where I deliberately go to the cheaper pubs to meet certain mates who really do feel it, and I am grateful when I do because it turns a £50 midweek drink into a £30 one!

    Drink in Spoons pubs is best for one pocket but not for ones political allegiances old Tim the owner has some very forthright views , but wonderful price modelling
