Someone said :
Ah yes Witherspoons with all their buying power versus the stand alone pub. You are right.
The price of the keg, the rates, huge energy costs, rising staff costs, rates, water rates, insurance ... â‚¬5 for stout is HUGE
But if the pint was cheaper, then people would drink alot more and the place would get worse, vomiting on streets, rude behavior, and maybe more fights would occur.
If these things are happening today and the pint is reguarded as been expensive, wat kind of place would it end up been if the pint was cheaper????
So be very careful what you wish for, you might end up getting it!
