    Classic swindle add 3% on VAT from 17% to 20% that's a average of 10p a pint and give you a penny off. and we are ment to be pleased bunch of If they want to do something worth while they should make ON-sales VAT free so any ale drank on the premises is VAT free this will encourage more sensible drinking and less street drinking making it more attractive for people to drink in pubs not supermarkets.

    Did anybody else notice that on the bar in The Globe in Leicester there was a pot full of 1p coins on the bar saying please take one courtesy of George Osborne?

    The barman said "We're not changing our prices, so anyone who has a pint can take a 1p coin".

    I thought it was very amusing and very sharp as he only annouced it a couple of days before.

    Cracking idea, take a penny. I now have to eat my words, my pint of HSB in Fuller's pub has gone down a penny, now £3.34 for a pint

    I think we have to be pleased, not about the token 1p reduction (which, as has been mentioned, should be more at the pump), but about the abandonment of the escalator which should, at least for now, put the brakes on spiralling prices? Did you all get your "We did it!" emails from camra for signing the petition?

    The O'Neills near Clapham Common has taken 1p off the price of a pint, but doesn't sell real ale. The O'Neills near St Pancras recently put the price up, maybe to pay for the refurbishment, but does sell real ale.
    Decisions, decisions. Which one shall I visit???

    Yep, sure did

    But still waiting for the condescending diatribe from the Prime ministers office telling me they are a listening government similar to the one I got from No10 when the "No fuel duty increase and road tolling" petition broke the magic barrier as well

    This penny off a pint could encourage binge drinking.
