Yups, since Youngs took over the Manor Arms a couple of weeks ago, a pint of Estrella has gone up 20p already.Could easily see Young's snapping it up, and building fancy hotel rooms above.
By the time this happens, you'll be lucky with Youngs if you can even get a pint out of them for £5, the amount of times they enjoy hiking prices in their pubs.
Would be a nice gesture if they both turned up\just thought you might like to know that the majority of the shares of LT Pub Management Ltd, the new owners of Crown & Sceptre, are owned by Burac Trade & Investment Corp - a company associated with Lord Ashcroft, and registered in the British Virgin Islands

I wonder whether either the Labour or Lib Dem electioneers will be choking into their pints tomorrow?
I don't think any independent can come close to matching Wetherspoons bulk buying discounts. 50p on top of their usual prices seems pretty reasonable to me.I have yet to visit since it stopped being a spoons, but the fact pints have gone up by 50p two months after opening doesnt give much incentive.
Has this price hike been because of, or the reason why it is now so empty?
Wetherspoons buying power is massive so I always thought prices would increase.I don't think any independent can come close to matching Wetherspoons bulk buying discounts. 50p on top of their usual prices seems pretty reasonable to me.
The bottom line is: use it or lose it.
More than one veggie choice per day. And a Linda Mccartney sausage is hardly an enticing gourmet prospect. You can buy 6 for a quid!Better than most places. Two of the burgers are veg along with pie, curry and sausage. Sad not to see fish on there.
Personally I’d love to see more chickpea (yum yum) What would you want to see on the menu?
