    There's some mentioned earlier which beat this but I had a text from a friend, currently in Oslo, regarding bottled Bombardier at ... 9!

    Somebody local was complaining that on a recent visit to Hereford they had to pay £3.50 for a pint of lager ( top price £3 in Bromyard but you can get it cheaper). He must be one of those who knows all about the World but has never been out of the County. You get a lot of them here.

    The price if a pint of London Pride in the Allied Arms in Reading is now £3.45....when it comes to trends we're right by London!

    Still £3 p/p in the Nags though! I think £3 is about right round these parts at the moment.

    Popped into the Bull & Last at Gospel Oak/Kentish Town/Tuffnel Park (not actually sure where the hell it is) where an admittedly very good pint of Redemption Big Chief (5.5%) set me back an walletdropping £4.50!

    I paid £4.40 for a very average pint of Spitfire in The Punch Bowl, Mayfair, the other evening. I reckon your Redemption Big Chief for £4.50 was better value!

    Dartmouth Park, I reckon, but it's not far from Highgate Cemetery and just across the road from Parliament Hill Fields, so it "serves" Highgate too.

    I had a half of Hooky Bitter 3.6% there on 3rd February, for "only" £1.85 (or £3.70 a pint). Presumably the price differential is down to the budget and the strength of the beer? I was last in the Southampton Arms, just down the road from there, in February too, when all the beers were priced at £3.05.

    A pint of St Peter's bitter in the St Pancras Hotel will cost you £6.

    A couple of months ago I had a sneaky last pint in the Basketmakers in Brighton and missed my last train home. Including the cab I had to get that pint cost me £63.
