I live in London and I have never really taken much notice of the price of items here and just gone with the flow. I had 2 mates from the North visit for the weekend and one is a chef so rather than go out for dinner he cooked( his idea) and I bought the ingredients but during the day we eat out well I mean a cup of tea sandwich slice of cake etc etc but both were astounded at the prices they charged.
A typical example We went to Regents park and visited a café where we paid the following.
Cup of tea in a cardboard cup(small) £2:10p each. Ham and cheese sandwich on thin bread £4:10p each. Slice of cake £3:40p per slice that was the cheapest other cakes were more expensive ie Chocolate. That is the norm around here and I guess I just pay it but would be interested to see if you think it is a rip off and also if there is a BIG difference in what you pay around where you reside ???
Have a great day !
