Re charging for water, I'll admit that £1 is a lot for a glass of water but consider that the licensee has to pay for rent, rates, electricity, gas, the glass, the staff, the washing up, and the bloody water itself (business premises tend to be metered) I suppose a charge has to be levied. That is not even taking into account various other factors in a busy pub like the space the person drinking water is taking up and a profit that a pub has to make to pay the licensee a wage.
