    I'm more surprised that you played a round of golf there and though it was going to be cheap!

    It's a very nice place from what I remember when I was there a couple years ago. I wouldn't expect it to be "good value for money".

    I paid a whisker over £7 for a cafitiere of Jamaican Blue Mountain in Fortnum and Mason. Given the quality of the coffee, the ambience and the astonishingly attractive waitress, I think it was worth it.

    I also paid nearly £6 for a cup of ming in Bergen airport some years ago. That was rather poorer value but that's Norway for you.

    Probably Geneva, while over there with work. I can't remember how much for coffee but do remember wincing every time I came to pay for something. One thing I do remember is paying £16 for two pints one night in the pub...

    Between £3-4 is the most I've paid. I usually look out for the deals at such outlets, was in St. Pancras last month individually buying a coffee or pasty was pretty expensive, but buy both and it totals £4.50 at a well known pasty outlet.

    I only drink tea as coffee is for ponces - last cup of tea with milk i had out cost 90 pence.

    I would rather drink my own steaming pish than pay some of the prices posted above.

    If you knew the price before you ordered it, I don't think you can complain.

    I spend my life avoiding things that I think are excessively priced.

    Starbucks Caramel Latté for the missus: £3.80 ?

    "Go and get us a coffee"
    "What kind ?"
    "Anything. Surprise me"

    She hated it and I glugged it :) You try and do something nice for 'em...

    Wetherspoons last one I bought when out: £1.39 and proper nice. Wouldn't zap most coffeelover's zingers but I did get a free half-hour sit down out of it too :)

    Wetherspoons use Lavazza coffee and reasonable machines. If the staff have spent five minutes learning what the machine does, it should be a perfectly satisfactory cup of coffee.

    not sure about coffee..but I paid 5 quid for a pint of milk once..!!

    was one a works training (in prep for a project) up in abderdeen for a week and about 1/2 of us took bad with a stomach bug, I was laid up in the hotel bed for 2-3 days and was unable to eat, so I rang room service and asked them for a pint of milk - that was 2.50, plus 2.50 surcharge... couldn't even drink it either :(

    I know someone who inadvertantly spent £40 on breakfast - we were staying at a rather nice hotel on business (Arsene Wenger and co. were in the bar), sponsored by our hosts. Breakfast was included. One of our number decided that meant they could have it delivered to their room. It didn't.

    In that case he's lucky he didn't drink the contents of the mini bar while watching Pay per View porn, before going home with a new bathrobe and slippers in his luggage. :D

    Other than at the end of a meal at a restaurant I don't think I've ever bought a coffee, so zero, nothing.

    :)
