    Starting to think I have spent so long away from a pub that I have increased all the prices in my head…

    Probably should ignore me.

    A pub near Bank Station (London) charged me £8 for a pint last week, highest I've seen so far

    I can't wait to be upset about Death Stranding Directors Cut being £70 and arguing with everyone on here again.

    I just hope there's an upgrade option given I recently bought the base game and won't get round to playing it for ages.

    There's a pretty easy explanation for this. Every "drink" you get for yourself is actually a pint and a half. A pint for you. And a half for "Bad Paz" who you only let out a few times a year, when a situation demands it. Obvious really, when you think about it.

    I think Paz only drinks in gentlemen's establishments. How much are the bartenders wearing in these 'pubs', Paz? Any windows?

    Never intentionally been to a place like that. (And never in the UK).

    Just looked at menus of the places I went to and most pints I drink are about £6. So clearly my memory is completely fucked.

    @PazJohnMitch You were ordering 2 pints at a time weren't you...

    Does this £4 per pint savings revelation mean that you're more or less likely to drop £70 on a PS5 game, Paz? :)

    Maybe you're on the pub's sucker list and were being overcharged.

    Yeah I've been all over the country and haven't seen it cost £10 a pint anywhere, even in 5 star hotel bars.

    Or if you're in a round and ordering large glasses of wine/cocktails/spirits, the rounding up might make you think it's a tenner a drink. I could well imagine 2 large glasses of wine, a large G&T and a pint of Weiss beer costing over £30.

    See even 6 quid a pint is alien to me in normal circumstances. Most I've ever seen one up here is when they put Desperados on tap as a special for £4 something.

    Desperados is considered posh craft ale up here.

    We are not in Norway, those prices are daft.

    I am pleased to see the forum return to the days of old, with proper thread derailing. This is now the booze price thread and the woke thread is about comics and football Italia.

    If you've got a choice in a pub outside of Fosters, Carlsberg or Carling up here I'd advise you take some Tupperware and plastic bags with you so you can hoard it like the Americans did with fuel the other month.

    I went to a funeral in Yorkshire a few years ago with my dad. The wake was held in a miners welfare club and when I went up to the bar to get some drinks my dad asked for a desperado.

    The barman replied ‘where does that think tha is? Fucking London or something?’

    Desperados taste like ashtray water.

    Rum is definitely paying between £8-9 a pint.

    I fucking hate it. There’s another one he drinks. Sol, I think. Just buy a bottle/shot of tequila if you’re that keen to make your drink taste awful.

    I like the smell more than anything. It's the closest I'll ever get to smoking weed again unless I get all American Beauty once the last kid has been packed up and fucked off out the house on the day of their 18th.

    Christ knows who thought it was a good idea. I first came across it when abroad watching football (Poland maybe?) and just thought it was a beer. Wondered why it tasted wrong.
