Am I right in thinking that the Bothy have been temporarily at the Shelbourne Hotel before when the Blundell Arms was being decorated. What sort of prices are they charging for their beer? Is it reasonable or is it hotel prices?
I only ask because since the Broken Token got chucked out of a decent real ale pub at the Eagle and Child at Bispham Green (The manageress got threatened with jail and a large fine for us being there - PEL, etc) and found refuge at Mawdsleys Hotel down the road in Mawdesley (note different spellings), we have to suffer the unholy price of £2-20 (cheap for you Southerners I'm sure) for a pint of nitrofizz Boddingtons or John Smiths shite and having asked them to get some bottled beers in, they got London Pride and Timothy Taylor's Landlord in and charge £2-50 for the honour of drinking it. I'm quite happy to drink tap water for nothing as I have to drive anyway but I do appreciate the odd reasonably priced pint!

Cheers
Mark
