Belly is referring to Marple Cricket Club.

He is - i thought my avatar might give it away.

Anyway I was wrong - the guest bitter is £2.15! I'ver not noticed the pint for a single pint due to all those rounds I have to keep getting in!

Now the clocks have gone forward and the weather has improved, it's been nice to walk the dog on a sunny evening, and as ever one's footsteps seem to wend their way to some of the rural pubs we have on the fringes of Marple.   :P

So here is an update on this all-important matter.  In each case, the price is for a pint of decent bitter:

Fox (Brookbottom)           £2.30
Devonshire (Mellor)          £2.40
Sportsman (Strines)         £2.50
Romper (Marple Ridge)      £2.70

Quite a wide price variance there, with the two Robbies pubs the cheapest.

£2.90! This is surely the most expensive real ale in the area?   ???

Dropped by at the Romper yesterday evening, and had a nice pint of Black Sheep out on the deck.  But it was £3.   :o   

Is this the most expensive real ale in marple?

Blimey!  You'd have to pay me 6 quid to consume a pint of Carlsberg   ;D

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..... :o!

just got home from a very pleasant couple of hours in the garden at the "ringers", nice people around including visiting boaters, nice beer and snacks, pleasant staff, a great atmosphere and a lovely sunset to watch over stockport, coupled with a couple of pints of Veltin lager........very nice!
