Any Greene King Licensees on this site?
After a free pint?
Brewery have just put their prices up. With the VAT increase it's gone up 15p a pint in my local as of tonight.
ES, they were never the cheapest, but one of the hardest brewery chains to get a job with, I tried for 6 months back in 2005.
My local which I would say is WAY out of their area has actually always been very reasonable.
Pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord has just gone up from Â£2.55 to Â£2.70
Almost London prices!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got charged Â£3.30 for a pint of Pedigree in a very ordinary market town pub in Derbyshire recently...
I,ve got a tenancy with them! At present they are trying to recruit ex forces to take over their tenancies. Well all I can say is be very wary. This trade is a bugger as it is but GK sell it as all roses and nice profit. Yes for them. If any Arrser is thinking of taking over a GK pub please PM me for a few pointers.
Timothy Taylor in a Greene King pub? Not one of their ales, might be a freehouse!
Average price round my manor in the City is Â£3.40!!
Â£2.50 for black sheep cask
Â£2.40 for John Smiths Smooth
Â£2.60 for Fosters
Â£2.70 for Kronenberg
Â£2.60 for Strongbow
Shorts are about Â£1.60 with a double up for a pound and fifty 'p' a mixer
I think they are reasonable for what it costs me, added on my overheads and profit margin and then a tadge more for contingencies...we may not be the cheapest but we are competitive and not greedy.
I am a freehouse though which helps considerably in how much I buy the things for.
I only run the pub as a hobby at the weekend, Engineering is still my stock in trade.
