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.

It is possible, yes, but with web links being such a valuable commodity in terms of Google ranking nowadays a reciprocal link is necessary as explained in the pub guide: "Finally, if you have your own pub web site and would like us to provide a link to it, then all you need to do is add a link to www.marple-uk.com on your own site and then let us know."

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?!

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
