    Got to Kew Bridge station and realised I had forgot to bring a card so was a bit disappointed I would have to forgo the Crown and Anchor but the main event was a tap takeover at London Beer Lab.Burnt Mill are a great new brewer and brewing the best beer that money can buy.Unfortunately for me they only take cards..Wasted night and pretty dull beer in general.

I seem to recall the "all drinks £3" is in fairly small writing at the top of the menu and is easy to miss.

    Obviously if you deviate away from the recommended serve the price will adjust accordingly (and presumably proportionally).

    Sign at the brewery last night. "From Monday 19th November all serves will be £3.50"

    I thought £3 for 2/3rds of a 2.9% beer was a rip off, never mind £3.50.

    As far as I'm concerned £3.00 for 2/3rds is a rip off for anything under 6.5% and why do they insist on these stupid measures? I'm glad I've never wasted money on any of their overpriced beers.

    The Dodo micropub had a 5.5 Cloudwater beer on cask on Thursday for £6.40 a pint.

    Which explains why I've still not been there.
    I suspect all the SE London ones would swerve from stocking it.

    What an upper rip-off. Perhaps extinction isn't that bad after all...

    That's quite a jump. Shiny new premises to pay for I guess (which I haven't been to yet).

    Here's a new one to me in the recent cash vs card developments.

    I'm currently in The Merchant - a Fuller's pub in London's Docklands. I ordered a pint of Mallinson's Amarillo and one of my eyebrows did its best Roger Moore impersonation when I was asked for £6 for the privilege. Whilst rooting around for the money, the barmaid, who was oblivious to my fumblings (story of my life...) held out the card machine only to be taken aback when I proferred cash (a five-pound note and a £2 coin). An awkward 15-20 seconds of her tapping on the EPOS machine ensued after which she said "five pounds" and gave me back the coin. When I asked why I got the "refund" she told me it was cheaper as I'd paid by cash! I couldn't see any 'minimum card' transaction signs anywhere.

    The Amarillo was in fine form, but then again, I'd expect that for £5...

    I wonder then just how many other pubs are profiteering from cardless transactions and by a 20% markup too? I wonder if this is Fuller's policy or just the pub's?
