The next two pubs offer an interesting perspective on the whole soft drinks in pubs issue. BOTH of these pubs charged £1.50p for a pint of Blackcurrant & Soda.
The Fleur de Lys in Lowsonford has, for quite a number of years, been more of a restaurant and I've reported on it previously (#026).
|Fleur de Lys, Lowsonford - 29th September 2014|
Also coming in at £1.50p a pint is the Swan & Mitre in Aston (Birmingham).

Next up, at £1.40p a pint is The Anchor Inn at Hartshill.

Then, at £1.30p is The Garrick Inn in Stratford-upon-Avon.
|The Garrick Inn, Stratford-upon-Avon - 30th September 2014|
Just down the road is The Windmill Inn which is yet another Greene King pub!
|The Windmill Inn, Stratford-upon-Avon - 30th September 2014|
I do believe that £1.00p per pint for Blackcurrant & Soda to be a reasonable price and that once it goes much above this constitutes a rip-off. So, onwards to the pubs that offered the best value.
First up is the Wharf Tavern in Hockley Heath at £0.80p a pint.
|Wharf Tavern, Hockley Heath - 2nd October 2014|
Then comes the Three Tuns Inn in Fazeley at £0.70p per pint.
|Three Tuns Inn, Fazeley - 5th October 2014|
Next, we have a tie with two pubs offering a pint of Blackcurrant & Soda at £0.60p. First was The Woodman in Birmingham.
|The Woodman, Birmingham - 3rd October 2014|
The second £0.60p pub is The Greyhound at Hawkesbury Junction on the outskirts of Coventry.
|The Greyhound, Hawkesbury Junction - 8th October 2014|
Only two more to go, and just missing out on the 'star prize' is the Navigation Inn at Wootton Wawen with Blackcurrant & Soda at just £0.45p a pint.
|Navigation Inn, Wootton Wawen - 1st October 2014|
Finally (and thanks for staying to the end!) we come to the 'winner', at £0.40p for a pint of Blackcurrant & Soda it is The Windsor in Birmingham.
|The Windsor, Birmingham - 3rd October 2014|
So, we made it to the end and I have to conclude that Long Itchington must indeed be THE most expensive place in the UK for Blackcurrant & Soda prices if the Two Boats is offering the lowest price at £2.10p per pint. Is it a rip off? I'll let you be the judge of that!
