Never went in but spoke to guys stood behind me and they said thatchers gold was £3.20 a pint but £4.20 2 hours before and after the game 

 

That’s me never buying a pint in there.

I think they need to tone down the security. Fair play on the doors but wondering around the pub constantly have having guards on watch in the outside area was not appreciated. 

Making people wear their hats backwards “because of CCTV” also tragic and hilarious in equal measure. Thought it was a great gag initially

I saw this happening and one lad was just in completely bemusement

agree with others, security was way ott and also no checking of home fans only, needs to be one or the other really

That's right. They made my mate who is 81 turn his hat backwards if you can believe that!

Surely you’re asking for trouble by doing this?

This isn’t Dublin.

They would have a fit if someone wanted to wear a mask then.

We went from the Albert early on £3 for Red Stripe, to end up paying nearly £10 for a Moretti and a Haze. 

I think we will be sticking to the Albert and the Masonic from now on.

Yeah, not a great first impression. Nice place, but as has been mentioned, some arsehole security and ripping off football fans. A full pound more expensive is not on really. 

Isn't that a good thing? I once had the begining of noro-virus on the afternoon of a game. On the throne (at home) until 5 minutes before kick-off. Thought whatever I had had passed and made the kick off (I'm 2 minutes away). Never had a more uncomfortable afternoon at football in my life. I nearly lost my sh1t on many multiple occassions, and had to wait until the ground had practically evacuated before risking leaving myself.

 Sounds like you had practically evacuated as well!  :shocking:

Unfortunate, but from what I read on here, it seems likely the cubicles that might have enabled you to relieve yourself were occupied by some with other needs.

If it keeps it affordable for those who will keep it ticking over on a non match day...

My thoughts exactly.  Went in Saturday after the game during the ‘price hike’ and it was still reasonable considering a lot of Bristol prices these days - £20 odd for 5 pints. If I hadn’t read this I wouldn’t have known any different. Better to look at it that it’s just a lot cheaper sometimes - like the old 50p a pint night at uni! Still a lot cheaper than the ground and better quality as well.

Yep agree with this, new opening so cheaper prices when the pub isn't busy to attract customers on those days

I can't see a £1 increase being a big problem. The pub clearly need alot more staff (bar & security) on matchdays so understand the logic.

If that is the case why doesn't every other pub do the same?

All the others manage to operate on same prices, I have never known an establishment alter prices dependent on how busy they are

While I agree I think it's a poor argument, surely they will sell more pints between 1100 and 1500 on a Saturday lunchtime when we're playing offsetting the need for additional staff?

I am assuming they make a markup on each pint, I can't see another way they operate.

The argument that they want to is enough for me, they're not a social service and no one is forced to go there. Easy - if you don't like the policy enough don't drink there. If enough people don't like it then the place goes under for someone else to run it that might implement a different policy.

Maybe these are the normal prices and they are lowering prices when they are not busy

Sadly not, these increased prices only occur either side of kick off and are lower the rest of the week

But they are not extortionate and with pubs closing seemingly on a daily basis including several around Ashton Gate I don't have any problem with this if it keeps their doors open
