UPON visiting the Old White Swan in Goodramgate on Friday (November 22) I ordered a pint of Guinness and was charged the grand sum of £4.70.

Upon questioning the steep price I was told that the pub puts the prices up on a weekend and also leading up to Christmas. The normal midweek price is definitely cheaper because the staff told me it was.

I would like to know why this is happening? Is it law that the pub is allowed to do this? Also there was no signage to say how much everything is.
