Astonishingly Cheap Drink

Had a drink at the Southwark Tavern last night with Welsh Journo. Two lime and sodas I said. That'll be forty pence, said the girl behind the bar. What? I said. Forty pence, she said. It's twenty pence each for the lime cordial. It's the cheapest drink you can get, said Welsh Journo. I was gobsmacked. I'm sure I've been charged two pounds in other pubs for lime and soda. Is this a price unique to the Southwark Tavern? Had I gone back in time to the 1950s (or possibly Tudor times? Borough does have that kind of vibe)? I'm definitely going back to the Southwark Tavern again.

With a flask. Of vodka. Would go nicely with the lime and soda.

Lime and Soda on a Friday night? Tut you should have gone to the Market Porter instead for a quaff of one of their real ales....

we'd already had a bottle of wine. I was actually looking for the Market Porter but couldn't find it - possibly due to the effects of the bottle of wine.

Scrumpy is the thing to drink in the Market Porter - light, refreshing and it very quickly takes your legs.

Cider was the first thing I ever got drunk on, at the age of fifteen, I think.
