  1. Wow this is a respectable list? Did you make it?

    I am actually a little in awe of your drink spot knowledge.

    All i can say is Wow.

  2. Ok Ok if i read the whole post i could answer my own questions... well in the interest of fact checking I may have to visit some of these establishments and report back!

    ReplyDelete
  3. oh wow!! this is a very extensive list!! you are just asking for trouble by posting this...

  4. Excellent work.

    However, is it possible to add what flavours of beer are on offer at these prices as I suspect they will be of the Carlton Draught variety thereby excluding anyone with a palate?

  5. Last time I looked Club UK is now at Karaoke bar for some time.

    @kate why would this cause trouble there are already sites out advising of parma deals and cheap drinks.

  6. Some of the pubs have closed down so I think the list may be a bit outdated.

    Try http://www.thehappiesthour.com for up to date drink and meal deals.

  7. Folks, I'm happy to update this list with any of your recommendations/removals.
    I agree, its a pretty old list, some are my own observations, plenty came from friends too - and no doubt there are now things on it that are now out of date.
    Thanks @greg for the helpful comment about Club UK - you're absolutely right, have now updated.
    @neilmelbourne if you want to let me know which ones have closed down, I'll take them off the list.

  8. Oops hit post, missed replying to all of you! @bruceandfran - as you know, cheap drinks often mean booze of a lower quality. I have endeavoured to mention it where a particularly good deal is to be found (see my entry about Rathdowne Tavern here: http://10dollarmealsinmelb.blogspot.com/2009/05/rathdowne-tavern-update-not-10-steak.html and Pugg Mahones here: http://10dollarmealsinmelb.blogspot.com/2009/09/10-sunday-roast-at-pugg-mahones.html)
    @amanda - its some of my research, and some of my friends'. I'd be proud to say I did it all on my own, but that's just not true!
    @kate - Trouble is my middle name ;)
