Blimey! You'd have to pay me
6 quid to consume a pint of Carlsberg
Meanwhile, here's an update on my survey of rural beer prices at pubs around Marple (my dog knows the way to them all...) In each case, the price is for a pint of bitter, with the percentage increase since April last year, rounded to the nearest whole % (see post of 6 April 2009).
Fox (Brookbottom) £2.45 7%
Devonshire (Mellor) £2.50 4%
Sportsman (Strines) £2.60 4%
Romper (Marple Ridge) £3.00 11%
In the case of the smaller increases, much (if not all) of these percentages will have been because of the restoration of VAT to 17.5%, coupled with increases in duty. But the Romper's 11% looks a bit greedy.....
