When I read your post I had a laugh about the £5 per pint, who would pay that? Then I had a think about it. Today I paid £16 for a glass of white wine, a cider and a bottle of chimmey. Pleased to say I then visited 2 Sam Smiths pubs for down to earth prices. Two weeks ago I was somewhere were it was £10 for a beer. And no I didn't buy it.
