Probably more like £3-4 for a decent place. I don't really go anywhere better than 'decent'. :lol:

I actually don't either, it depends on the occasion though.

Yeap, though the amount of places that charge it and the quality of the product is awful.

For example went to Osbournes weeks ago, could only have 1/2 of a pint as the drinks were awful.

:lol: I refuse to go to expensive boozers like. I can't understand why people go to expensive bars to buy exactly the same product (sometimes a worse product!), at double the price.

Another reason is mobile phones, people back then would pop in to see their mates instead of texting.
Pubs were the centre of the community.

The Garter still do a loyalty card? One time if you bought a pint they put a sticker on and when you collected nine you got a free pint.

Why do we think the pub trade has died?

Supermarket off-licences is my guess?

Think that is part of the reason, but people have so many alternatives to do things now.  Internet, Games Console, Netflix etc, than to go to the pub.

Think it was more common place back in the day to drink for the sake of doing something and it was only way of getting together with friends etc.  Also the consumption of alcohol per person has been falling for a long while, look at how a 1/4 of 18-25 are now teetotallers.

Surely not?.  :lol:

If garter and beehive can serve decent beer at a good price how cant other pubs do the same?
