how much? You must be kidding ...
45p for a cup of tea! That's outrageous! How do you make any money?
Simple, as a charity we don't pay tax, we don't pay our staff and all our overheads (although tracked of course) are subsumed in the general costs of running the site.
For just 45p - 9/- in old money - you get the cheapest tea, the nicest location and the friendliest staff in town.
And no, despite the average cup of tea costing 83.756p in Britain, we're not planning to raise the price any time soon. We want visitors to remember the catering coach at Midsomer Norton as being somewhere that has atmosphere, character and charm in equal quantities, as well as being a cheap day out for all the family.
