[quote]I am not complaining, just commenting, as I thoroughly enjoyed the hike and the contact with the people I meet. I will however review the financial situation more closely before next travelling to UK.
I understand, after a hard days walking convience is all you want, but twenty five pounds for a pub meal is a crime.
Although I understand these companies are out to make a quick buck, walkers still need to make a stand and provide feedback about pricing like you have done and also let the companies know what you think about there prices. By being greedy they will end up with out any buisness, just like europe has become expencive to travel too, hence people have decided to stay at home, the lake district will end up being known as an expencive option and people will turn away in droves and then they will have no buisness, so its in there interest to remain affordable. If people are happpy to pay it then so be it, but I for one will make a stand and will not be ripped off.
if any one knows of cheaper places to eat at, it will be good to know about them.
