Was the lemonade from the pump Debra? It used to be taking the piss when asking for a coke and spirit and they charged almost as much as the alcohol for water and syrup... Mind you Christmas Day means higher staff costs.
I didn't see anyone use the "mixer gun" Jan, so I assume that it was from a bottle, which I'd guess would be more than a gun splash.
There were no additional staff on, just the guv'nor and his wife working the bar.
Danny knows a barman who works in this particular pub, and says that he'll have a discrete word with him on prices.
If £3.50 is the going rate in that pub, then we'll swerve buying lemonade in there in future, or do the same as I did some 9 or more years back when I was charged £11.60 for a double vodka and tonic in The Mayflower, when the norm in other Rotherhithe pubs was around £8.40, I voted with my feet.
