    I think it’s still about £3.80 for cask in the castle

    I don't think Slaters is that expensive. The cost of a pint is similar to most of the other real ale pubs in Stafford. Some real ale pubs in Stafford charge up to £3.80, whilst floodgate is £3.20.

    Maybe my point is being missed, a pint there of their own brew is pricey but I can live with it. I am not used to going over a tenner for two drinks in Stafford. That's fine that everyone else is, I am not so please, I accept that a pint of beer can be above 3.50.

    I’m a regular in the bar and have many friends who drink there. It’s a bit of a hub rather than a clique, the custom is generally kept at a certain level so it’s a welcoming place and Rich does his best to keep the entertainment flowing. If anything, on live music nights it’s that popular it looks like they need bigger premises so furniture gets moved to make it safer and more accommodating.
    On the gins, they do try to make it clear their standard is a 35 rather than 25 measure hence the dearer price and the larger range of more expensive drinks. You also get offered the chance to sip a sample of ales before buying a pint so I think they are fair compared to some places.
    Hope this helps

    Beyond the usual pub/ ale offer I general find the charge is pay more than a tenner or more in most places, stone, leek, stafford, less in buxton but the options are poor in the town centre there. This is particularly the case if one buys spirts in a decent establishment.

    Yesterday Slater's Bar had their “1995 (25 Years)” anniversary beer on handpump. It’s an 8% Double IPA. Might still be on.

    Irrelevant, as I have no intention of visiting a pub this month. We'll see the state of play next month.

    I bought a bottle of 1995 during lock down. It was lovely, however I'm not sure i could drink more than 2.

    I had a couple of proper days out in Buxton last year with a few other pubmen and thought the Swan to be the best pub.
