Frederic Robinson Ltd have decided to make no increase in the price of their beers,normally they review their prices this time of year.They are also encouraging their tenants and their customers to log onto the "Axe the beer Tax- Save the Pub" Website;www.axethe beertax.com to make clear to Goverment that pubs need a break from the endless tax increases(including the2% above inflation duty escalator).

.......does that rings a bell?

It does indeed!  £1.98 a pint is tempting - but not that tempting!
I believe the price of a pint for Members at Marple CC is under £2 as well. A regular real ale is always available on the handpull, currently its Black Sheep Bitter.

Its only about £10 to join as a social member and you will get the benefits of watching some local sport too.

The Club in question is a private members club , and do not opperate as a public House.They do not pay Business Rates etc.If they make a profit they are required to return it back to the members in the way of cheaper prices.

I also enjoy a pint of Theaxton's mild in Marple at £1.98, but it is not as posh as the "Ringers"

Where?   :P

This sounds like a loaded question, why do you want to know why I want to know

Because I am thrifty.

I drink in the "Ringers" and am satisfied, but I also enjoy a pint of Theaxton's mild in Marple at £1.98

but it is not as posh as the "Ringers"

I was asking why Alan wants to know the price of beer in the local Pubs.

We also have a lot of Robbi's pubs in the area - where is the competition??
Actually the competition - such as it is - tends to charge more for its beer than Robbies pubs.

Something to do with the price per barrel they are being charged from Robinsons.  These are the minimun prices they can charge to cover their overheads. 

Tennants could buy cheaper from Bargin Booze/Coop if they weren't tied to the brewery.  How can this give them a chance of running a profitable business. 

I know as I have been a licensee in a Robbi's pub - very difficult to explain to customers who complain about the price of a pint.  What most customers don't appreciate is that staff need paying and glasses need washing and lights need to be on and they expect the pub to be warm and welcoming, and clean.  The list is endless and they all cost money.  I'm not trying to make excuses about the price of a pint but it really isn't so simple.  We also have a lot of Robbi's pubs in the area - where is the competition??

How much is a pint of bitter/mild/lager in your watering hole?
