Thread: Broken wheelbarrow

    Broken wheelbarrow

    Absolute rip off price increase on beer. Pint of Tetleys and San miguel £8.60. Robbing b@stards

  2. #2
    Trent Bridge Inn - £4.40 for a pint of Magners and a pint of real ale. I know Notts is obviously going to be a premium £££wise but they're taking the pi55 a bit, also the beer is poor.

    I had a pint of San Miguel after the Wigan game 4.60 same price as his golf club. Never again. Navigation from now on. .

    Is it anymore expensive than surrounding pubs on the same product? If so, I'll make sure we price match for you 🍺🍺Alan Hardy added,

    Absolute garbage in there today. Ten minutes to get served expensive beer served in plastic pots and they've done away with soft drink refills. Deffo finding somewhere else next home match.

    But last season was in Glass I'm not having a go I'm asking the question. I just don't understand how can go up 140% for a pint!

    £3 a pint in the Navi and served in proper glasses. Comparing prices with other stadiums is irrelevant when there are other cheaper places 2 mins away where you are going to lose business to.

    So vote with your feet, unlike many clubs we are fortunate to have plenty of decent pubs within easy walking distance ( I paid £13.50 for 3 pints at the Ricoh last week but had little choice if I wanted a drink) if people keep paying these prices then they will continue to charge them.

    Never mind minutes in legs, it's all about footfall.

    How stupid are people... ? Notts or any club can not be seen to promote drinking with 'offers'. It is a bit like going to an airport. The prices are more expensive so to act as a deterant, so people DON'T drink to much.
    Why is that hard to comprehend?
    For some, it is just another way to have a go at the club!

    Who's going to tell him about the 2 quid a pint offer last season?

    What a load of steaming crap. Airport prices are high because they know you've got no alternatives so they rip you off for every last penny. If you believe what you've posted, you'll be telling us next that food in a Wetherspoons in an airport charges double the price of a Wetherspoons in the towns because they want to deter people from eating too much!!!

    330ml beer in Cancun airport....84 pesos (£4)
    330ml beer in Cancun carpark bar near the ADO buses....70 pesos
    330ml beer in any decent restaurant here on the Altiplano....40 pesos
    330ml beer in Mexico City airport............... 35 pesos in the bars (many to choose from).....20 pesos from the shops
    330ml - in main Mexico North bus station (3 bars).....25 pesos
    330ml in my local bar, music, widescreen tv, beer garden...18 pesos
    330ml beer in my local Oxxo store.....11 pesos
    330 ml from Walmart 8 cans of Carta Blanca for 55 pesos(named brand here) 4.5% ABV......7 pesos

    I'm off on an 18 hour trek cross-country to go Scuba-diving in the Caribbean next Saturday, via Cancun airport, Mexico airport and the bus stations.

    As Elite says above, they know you're trapped in the airports so the rob you by up to 11 times the cost of the beer (Mexico City isn't too bad because it isn't a tourist-type airport)....my plan, cooler bag, ice and a smattering of pigeon-Spanish involving the phrase "can you tell me where the nearest Oxxo or Walmart is located"

    Back on-topic, I've always been impressed at how reasonable the MLSB prices , compared to the Navvi, Plumtree and Magpies (now bulldozed?) was in the past....it seems like those days are gone........cooler bags anyone?

    Hmmm, so what you're saying is that Notts actually don't want people to buy alcohol from them?

    How stupid are people indeed..

    There are similar wild variations in price for exactly the same product over here. Take a pint of Strongbow for example - over £4 in many airports, around £3 in most pubs , some do it for just over £2. When we played Coventry I bought 120 440ml cans of Strongbow* from Tesco for £60 to avoid the parking charge, that's 50p per can which equates to 65p per pint!!!

    * It is quite likely I'll be advised to follow a gluten free diet soon - lager and bitter are banned but cider is acceptable, so my days of Worthington E(lite) could well be numbered. Luckily I have cheap taste buds where alcohol is concerned, I even enjoy Taurus cider (Aldi's finest) which works out at less than 57p per pint.

    I'm going to play Devils Advocate here, but yes....there is a certain Brewery model that we tinkered around with in the 90s, where selling LESS beer makes you more money.

    Assume beer cost at 2012 prices (sold my last bar then) is £1 pint cost, add VAT then double to cover all staff costs, utilities etc gives you £2.50 pint retail with a healthy net profit of 20% in the old sky rocket.........however, if you treble the cost price to £3.60 you lose SOME customers BUT, you use a lot less staff, less glasses, less wear-n-tear on carpets, seats, less security, less hassle plus you keep the riff-raff away.....obviously if you lose HALF your customers you are back to square one in this case.....so as long as he doesn't lose half his trade, AH is making more money by selling less
