    Any recommendations from you Southern types?

    Hoping to not get stabbed and get a pint with a head on it for under £10.

    I wandered trough last night. It was quite edgy which I've never noticed before there. Well i have but never been bothered by it. Mind I was sober and on me own.
    Big black lads staring me down.

    Hawley Arms is good. World's End lively. Quite like most of the pubs there really.

    happened to me a few years back but when they saw my twisted fingers due to arthritis they mistook it for the gang sign of the rolling eight trey crips and let me pass by

    If you like cheese go to the Cheese Bar. It has lots of cheese as well as booze.

    Regularly pay more than a fiver a pint up here anyway. 5.75 for neck oil is reasonable imo

    The Grafton Arms is the best pub in that area by a mile.

    The Oxford Tavern is decent but it’s half pub half gastro.

    Absolutely shocking boozer.
    Full of kids and suits these days.

    That's because you probably drink on the diamond strip.

    To be fair, I would rather pay a bit more for a nice pint like neck oil, but 4 beers for over £20 is a bit harsh.

    Boxes ticked.

    Is this price of a pint grumble we always get on here just a London thing? Are people like this on holiday as well?

    If you’re down here for 3-4 days or whatever and every pint you buy is 40p or even a quid more each time you’d surely have to be drinking a hundred pints or something for it to even matter.

    If money’s that tight surely you shouldn’t be going away ffs.

    The prices of goods and services in a place reflect the cost of the purchase price of the product, the wages they pay to staff and cost of ground rent on the pub, bar or restaurant.

    It’s not fucking difficult. If you don’t like it and constantly feel ripped off, or come here and restrict yourself to drinking in shit holes or Wetherspoons because you can’t bare the expense, stop at home.
