Also Birdman they supply a comfortable place for us to sit and enjoy ourselves. I was talking to someone from the Cricket Club and they were saying that the Swan Uppers costs are on a par with their large glasses of wine. I think we forget how prices have escalated up.

The key question is what size and what type?  Wine is normally sold in different sizes typically 125ml, 175ml and 250 ml and then the house wine or a better quality one and the good wines are normally by the bottle only..  I would expect 5 to 10 for a medium size dependent on the wine depending on the pub/restaurant

The prices in Cookham pubs are no different than Marlow, Windsor, Beaconsfield, Amersham.....Maybe the Swan Uppers can become a trailblazer and start up a loyalty scheme to reward regulars...Huh

6.50 for a 125ml glass is perhaps a bit rich but is perfectly all right for a 175ml glass.

The Crown posts higher charges by the way....

There is no earthly reason to compare the price you pay for a bottle of wine in a store against a glass served you in
a restaurant or a pub for reasons outlined by Birdman - it just does not comprehend.

So don't let the cost of a glass of wine ruin your evening, monty - the purpose for going out to the pub is to enjoy
the experience and have a bit of fun !

Have another glass .. hic !
