    If this comes to Waterford with cheap prices would you not have all the scumbags getting locked and causing trouble?

    That would be a concern id have, I'd rather pay a bit more in some other pub knowing that it's safe

    Do they have cider ??

    I read that Heineken wanted different terms than they have asked for before for the Dublin pub, weatherspoons said no and then dropped them From every every pub in uk and Ireland (a contract that was worth €30m a year to Heineken)so it was weatherspoons that actually refused Heineken.

    Apparently in the uk the big pub chains hold a lot of power over the suppliers but they have found in Ireland it is the other way around. I can see this changing soon. Weatherspoons already fell out out with Diagio and now Heineken.

    Wetherspoons have a nice selection of beer and IPAs and bottled options. I don't know if they have bulmers / magners in Ireland I know they have other ciders I mentioned previously. Without Heineken and Bulmers they may have a problem suiting the fussy/casual drinker

    No Bulmers/magners.
    They have Thatchers over here instead. Much nicer and doesnt completely tear the stomach out of you

    They do cheap food/Pub lunches also in the UK at least .Sometimes including a pint for free with a meal .

    Yeah I like thatchers too, to be honest mate I don't drink the Bulmers or Heineken because there are nice drinks out there but some people wouldnt look past it because it is what they are used too. They are in a drinking 'rut'

    The lunch and evening dinners with a pint are some value in the English Weatherspoons

    Yes ,people get very attached to a particular brand of drink .When back in Ireland i ofter drink at the Porter house ,Dublin City and Bray .There you dont get regular brands as they brew their own beer.Their stout called a pint of Plain is my favorite.

    In Dublin they opened with relatively normal prices for the area in Blackrock which kept those who only wanted to get drunk on cheap drink away. After they built up a clientèle of the types of customers they wanted, they lowered the prices to what they are now. Now part of this is because they weren't generating enough footfall, but one of the consequences of this was that people wanting to go in and get hammered at noon weren't seeing likeminded people there but were instead faced with people in suits having lunch or mothers with their children, essentially a very undesirable environment for them.

    I can not understand why they opened in ever so posh Blackrock ,Dublin .People living in that area are hardly price concious .They have another i believe in Blanchardstown ,Dublin ,which seems more suited ,as its a very working class area.

    Blackrock has a population of around 20,000. Other areas within walking distance would multiply that figure. Plenty of less well off people within that number.

    I think its more a matter of them walking into the Irish market rather than marching in. Establishing a presence slowly rather than just snapping up every huge pub that's out there.

    In time they'll be taking over more the obvious places. I heard the Church at the end of Henry St. is a done deal.

    Blackrock is a nice area but isn't as posh as you''re making out by any stretch.

    They wanted a "Behind closed doors" price fixing agreement to not sell the drinks cheap. Witherspoons turned them down and stopped a 60 million contract.

    If the agreement was on paper they would have been done for price fixing.

    I thought C&C bought the Church?
