It is free, but the pub aren't allowing us to use it out of the goodness of their hearts, they are expecting to make some cash off some of us.

I appriciate that, but a profit on a dozen pints of beer is nearer what would be a standard camping fee, not the profit on 30 measures of single malt which would make the camping fee something like 50, I'd presumed the landlord was betting he'd make his money back from the trade of a "captive" audience, so to speak.

Are you saying we're not allowed to drink our own stuff and have to buy from the pub only then, part of the AR to me is taking a carefully selected bottle with me I can enjoy on the Saturday evening, I hadn't seen anything restricting that, but if that's the case I'd probably abandon the drinking altogether, which means I've no need to camp?

Bring what you like Mark. Nobody will care. There will be enough of us getting ****faced in the pub to get them their profits, plus lots of us will be buying their food too.

That's kind of what I originally thought, but I wouldn't want to be nefariously supping from a bottle hidden in a plain bag.....

Sorry, wasn't saying that at all. We're more than welcome to eat and drink whatever we like In field whether its bought from the pub or otherwise.


And if you plan on having 30 measures of whiskey I'm not surprised you wouldn't want to pay pub prices. That would be almost the cost of a decent hotel.

makes me sound like a right , but then I rarely indulge purely for pleasure, however when I do I don't like to be restricted....
