This afternoon I've had quite a few Pheonix "Wobbly Bob" (6.0abv) for £1.59 a pint, ignoring the Abbot at £1.79. Summat to be said for living in Bowton.

Anyone know the usual prices at the Spoons in Bridgend. I've booked a couple of nights there in June for the Rugby League match.

I got a pint for 50p on Monday in a crap 'Spoons, but it was only option before bus home.
Usual army of staff rushing about and being very busy, except serving customers. About to give up when the one barmaid serving got to me.
Despite pump clip and price crown, £1.89, my choice wasn't on. Nor was my second choice. I was then pointed to a distant hand pump and told that's on, suggesting all those pumps sporting clips along the bar were not. The marketing attitude was any old beer will do, it's all the same.
So with only minutes before my bus, I grabbed a pint of the distant beer, checking it wasn't Greede King (it wasn't). I was asked for a £1, but I had my CAMRA 50p off voucher and 'double' discounts are not within the terms of the voucher. I pointed out I hadn't wanted a £1 beer but was directed to that as only option. So they agreed to my 50p pint.
Wish they hadn't. Quality was shit.

I remember when Spooooon's used to sell an evil little concoction called Scotch Bitter for 79 or 89p a pint, depending on where you were. My friend Finton Ryan and I went down to our local with =A38 to our name, intending to have 5 pints each. But the pub was closing for 2 weeks to have its upstairs refurbished, and the pub had been given a fatwa to run down all perishable stock to zero. So they were knocking out this Scotch Bitter for 49p a pint. We had 8 pints each. That must have been about 12 years ago.

The most expensive Spoons that I've been in was outside the millenium stadium in Cardiff, 2 years ago at the Rugby League weekend, A pint was £2.

One of the Central Manchester 'Spoons sells its normal Real Ales at £1.49 and has done for quite a while. At the same time the others have sold a pint at up to £1.99. Why this difference? I've no idea.

I had a pint of it once. It was a mistake, it was just a nasty weedy bitter taste, I should have just had water.

It's that in most spoons now - the GK RBB (was IPA) is now £1.29; up 30% on the previous price of 99p!

bit of a late reply here, but the spoons in Penarth and Barry are selling their festival beers at £1.39 a pint, whilst the main city ones in Cardiff (PoW, Gatekeeper) and Newport (JWL,TTL) are £1.79.
Any other price variation about?

The Spoons at the Angel in Islington is/was doing them for 1.89 and in Holborn I recall it being about 2.10 or so.
Ruddles Best was 1.39 at the Angel...
