Could someone nicely point out to The George that they can't spell Romiley either - I'm not a spelling Tzar, but if you are based on the edge of a town, its always handy to be able to spell it

Other than that, and a few other minor grammatical niggles, it's a nice simple clear website and a good start, but I agree sample menus are always handy

Update on my last post - to be fair to The George, having just spent a few minutes on Robbies website I suspect they built it on behalf of The George, and the fault is with them. I appreciate Robbies is dragging itself into the 21st century finally, but they could really do with a proof reader / focus group for their website - I'll happily volunteer for free beer!

Worryingly all of Marple's pubs are now in Stockport, anyone aware there had been an invasion?!

The new landladies of the George have provided an update for the pub guide (on St. George's Day):

The new landlord and landlady of the Hare and Hounds on Dooley Lane have provided an update for the Pub Guide:

http://www.marple-uk.com/pubguide/hounds.htm

I wonder if it's possible to include a link to each pub's website?  Pics and extra details there.  George one doesn't include a menu just yet though.

I can't beat £2.40, but I was pleased to discover yesterday that the Robbie's bitter at the Fox at Brookbottom is still only £2.60.  And what a great and unchanging old pub it is.   :)

And what a lovely walk it is to and from The Fox.

As a member of Marple Cricket Club you will get a very nice pint of cask ale (currently Adnams) for £2.40.

It's important to distinguish between real cask ales and lagers or Guinness etc, both of which are usually quite a lot more expensive than cask ales (locally anyway).

I was charged £5.45 for a pint of Boddingtons in a London hotel last week. But hotels are always more expensive than pubs.
........and London is a lot more expensive than Marple!

What is the average price for a pint in and around Marple?

It's hovering around the £2.70 - £3.20 range.

Is £3.50 expensive for a pint of beer? I have no idea of the cost as I can't remember the last time I bought a single drink in a pub.

Just completing my expense claims though and I notice that I was charged £5.45 for a pint of Boddingtons in a London hotel last week. But hotels are always more expensive than pubs.

What is the average price for a pint in and around Marple?

...so it should be at £3.50 a pint, and soon to increase, no doubt, after this week's budget.   :o
