    4 hours and decamped to the crown & anchor £7 for 2 pints rather than £5 + plastic glass deposit.

    Got an annual lads afternoon out next week & a day with my lads & girlfriend rather than buying presents & that'll be it.

    I will go when it’s nearer to Christmas than bonfire night

    Normally go on a midweek night for a few drinks and a bit of food

    The food is (hot dogs and beer) nice. Nothing much else from that though

    Neither here nor there!
    I kinda like it but as others note sat outside in the cold takes the shine off that nice cold pint you just got.

    It is a very couple type thing to do Imo so if your missus is whining you never do owt, take her to the markets.

    Retreat to The Waterhouse Spoons when the wallet starts crying for mercy.

    This intrigues me. What do you guys think is a reasonable price for piss in plastic glasses?

    If it's less than in the ground it's all positive, but sadly it's not.
