Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

How Much?

How Much?

We have all felt, at one time or another, that we have paid too much for a pint and that the breweries were "having a laugh" at the drinker's expense.

However, the prices that we pay in pubs for even the most "designer and trendy" of beers pale into insignificance when compared to the beer that costs you £32 per pint.

Yes, you did read that correctly, £32 a pint!

Deus, brewed in the Belgian village of Buggenhout, will set you back £32 a bottle in certai restaurants.

Aubergine, a Michelin starred restaurant in Chelsea London, has a beer list which includes pint bottles of Deus for £32.

The Bosteels brewery that brews Deus, which comes in at 11.5%, claims that they treat it like champagne.

Whilst they may treat it like champagne there is no way that it tastes like champagne, nor is there any justification for charging a champagne mark up.

The fact that restaurants are able to get away with charging ridiculous prices like this show that, regrettably, some customers have more money than sense.
