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.   Tongue

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.

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

Is this the most expensive real ale in marple?

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

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..... Shocked!
