Me too. I have worked in pubs and hotels and so know how they work.

In the hotel we had 4 bars. I was the Cellarman at the time. In the bar we would charge for a pint of lager £1.80. In the Lounge we would charge £2.00 and in the function rooms we would charge £2.20. If people paid for a function room they would pay over the odds. Well over £100. Those rooms were not being used, we could have given it away, but we charged over the odds as people paid it. Most of the time they wanted a buffet so again over £80 pound was charged for that privelage and a small portion of that was spent on cheap food, Tescos at a push, market or nettos otherwise. The biggest trick to sell the buffet was to place a fresh dead fish on a mirror like tray and frame it with lemon and orange wedges, it worked a treat, it was the focal point for anyone approaching the buffet table. If they discounted that and looked at the buffet itself, they would question where the £80 odd went, but they didnt.

A drink of coke in a pub is the biggest rip off. Its a box of syrup, fed through a cooler and then dispensed with water. All pubs charge the earth for this. A box of coke syrup costs the pubs next to nothing, and yet a small fortune is charged. And yet again, people pay it, not only that, they request ice. Ice does water it down. You dont need it. The cooler does the job, the coke is cold enough, you dont need ice.

And the grand finale, the ones who are drunk who ask for a vodka and coke. A single house vodka and coke rather than the smirnoff, and charge full whack (a double smirnoff and half a coke) the drunks pay it every time.

Which is why I will buy beer to drink at home and take out £20 or less. So many people think "that beer was watered down". It wasnt, it was a barrel bought at the cheapest place available, lager that isnt known to anyone but ran through a "carling" pump so you know its lager at least.

People who spend more than this have probably been robbed so many times, they have been too drunk to notice.

Cheers Lad that's just about every scam the pub trade can throw blown out the water ( especially the Coke syrup ) when the kids were young I must have blown a small fortune on cokes in pub restaurants .....

It depends. Alot of the spending I do now is with the missess which usually includes a slap up meal plus a few drinks and if she's feeling lucky we'll head to the casino. That would usually cost 100 to 150 quid. If we do well at the casino a night out can be as little as 30 quid.

When I used to go out with me mates (back in the day) that would cost me waaaay more. If we went on a bender and got charged up I'd easily spend a couple of hundred quid and usually those sessions would run into the next day where another ton would be spent.

Back then money was spent for fun whereas today it's spent a little more practically.
Football is a relatively simple game and Roy knows it ;)

Just going out for beers yesterday, not a real heavy one but a good long days/nights drinking, got through £100 easy.

Usually when out i'll take a ton and have the card just in case, just wondering what the norm is

(and this wasn't money getting into a club or anything)

How much is "a ton"? - is it 100? no idea how you spend that much.

I spend about 40 euro if I am on a real booze up. lots of bars are a mix of bar and nightclub here so no need to pay to get into some place.

Last bus home is a fiver, never really into fast food after drinking a skinfull and don't smoke so not too expensive.

100 is easy. 10 on travel, 5 on cigs, then 4 a drink, 10 a cocktail, add food and hookers...

40€ that would only buy you about 6 pints in Ireland, or most parts of Europe, not saying anything but I'm thinking light.  :D

On a proper :censored: up I'll easily rip through £80, an average night out will be £50-60
