At Corr Chilled, we know that many of our customers will be used to serving their clientele with refreshing drinks from their bars, pubs and restaurants. Indeed, we’re known for supplying high-quality commercial refrigeration to our thousands of customers across the hospitality industry, and so today have rounded up the ten most expensive pubs in Britain.
1.Singer Tavern, London
Charging an eye-watering £7.50 a pint, this hip Shoreditch bar is one of the most expensive in the country. Of course, this isn't the average pub – Mike Harrington, the manager of the bar, said that they specialise in craft beers and that people who come to his establishment could enjoy a different experience to what they'd get at chain pubs such as Wetherspoon.
2.Coach & Horses, London
This pub claims to be Soho's "most famous", and its pints have a price tag to match. If you're in the mood for a Leffe, you can expect to pay about £5.80 – or, at least you would have done in 2010. Inflation and rising rates mean this drink could be even pricier today.
3.The Butchers Arms, Reading
According to reviews on TripAdvisor, the cost of a lager from this establishment is more than eight pounds – one of the priciest places to enjoy a relaxing tipple in the country.
4.The White Horse of Hermitage, Berkshire
Berkshire follows just behind London as one of the most expensive places in the country to buy a pint. The White Horse of Hermitage may look pretty, but it’ll be costly if you’re planning on staying for more than a couple of drinks.
5.Hawksmoor Spitalfields, London
Hawksmoor not only offers an extensive selection of drinks to choose from, but it's known for its delicious steaks and freshly prepared food. Its cocktail menu is popular amongst tourists and those looking for a good night out. Oh, and it's not cheap!
6.NY-LON Lounge Bar, The O2, London
Whether you're going to see a gig or just sightseeing, there's nothing better than sitting back with a glass of your favourite tipple and preparing for an adventure. NY-LON was inspired by New York and London and is perfect for a sophisticated start to the evening.
7.Beaufort Bar, London
If you’re staying in London’s Savoy, then the chances are that you’ll be able to afford a cocktail or two in this exclusive bar, which is also home to a programme of burlesque shows.
This award-winning bar at The Langham Hotel offers one of the capital's biggest selections of gin and has an impressive cocktail menu to boot. Sipping away here will set you back, though – the majority of the bar's drinks start at £15.
9.The Bar, Chorlton, Manchester
Step away from the capital for a minute and sample the delights of Chorlton in Manchester. You can enjoy The Unhuman Cannonball, a limited-edition ale that will set you back £15.
10.Gigi’s, Mayfair, London
It’s not every night that you get to serve a James Bond star in your bar, so when you do, it’s an excuse to splash out. When staff at Gigi’s in Mayfair welcomed Grace Jones, they made her ‘the most expensive cocktail in the world’, estimated to cost £9,000 per glass.
