    But all three Butlins camps aren't in Ireland - they're in England!
    Ireland is really expensive for food & drink! (I have family over there so we regularly travel through Dublin!).

    So, I do understand what you're trying to say - but comparing one expensive bar with another doesn't really make any difference!

    At Butlins I do feel 4.05 for a bottle of VK really is excessive. Surely around 3 would be far more fair? VK is 1.85 at Wetherspoons and, whilst I don't expect Butlins to charge Wetherspoon prices (not many places will!) I would like to see drinks prices a little more in line with normal city centre prices!

    Sammye99 ordered a large coke with double vodka in it at Minehead last summer and it cost 7.50!! What's that all about?? I appreciate Butlins want to make a bit of profit on the drinks etc but come on!! Be fair!!

    On memory, I *think* it was 4.15 for a VK on the adult breaks - so not too big a rise but I know what you mean!

    Went to my best mate wedding yesterday and for a double Southern Comforts and lemonade 7:20
    Double Pimms and lemonade 8:20

    So Butlins is cheaper then this

    Yeah I do agree that the VK are not good value for money and I had never paid 7.50 for a drink at Butlins.
    I don't mind paying 5/ 6 for a double southern comforts with lemonade as I go to the clubs in different cities and sometime need to pay that much in the clubs.
