My lady friend and I visited Bristol and we went into the Shakespeare pub
which is by the old docks/waterfront area.
I ordered a pint of beer and a pint of lemonade, friend was driving. For
this I was charged £4.35. When leaving I asked how much they had charged me
for the 'pint' of lemonade - it was £2.50.
I pointed out to them that they had put a huge amount of ice in the glass
and then topped it up - it was not a pint of lemonade. They replied that my
friend had asked for ice.
Ice is water. I estimate roughly half the 'pint' was water so in effect they
had charged me £1.25 for water.
I'm not mean and neither am I vindictive. This is deception. To charge £2.50
for a pint of lemonade is outrageous but when half of the contents are water
its down right illegal I would have thought.
Any advances of £2.50 for a 'pint' of lemonade?
