Buffet Prices- How much is too much?!
A few months ago, I gave my fella the job of securing the date for our reception venue as I couldn't get to their open evening due to work commitments. I only found out about a fortnight ago that he signed for something but has promptly lost the paperwork they gave him...
We are happy to pay full price for everything apart from the buffet option - their cheapest option is £5.95pp for a bacon or sausage butty! Am I alone in thinking that it is unreasonable to expect someone to pay nearly 6 quid for this?? In total, it would cost us £357 pounds for them. We couldn't even under cater as everyone would expect to get one butty. I wouldn't mind paying 5.95 if you got more for it, but it seems particularly steep as the venue is a cafe by day and they certainly don't charge these prices for their sandwiches usually.
Has anyone had experience of negotiating over this area? A compromise we see would be to order some bacon/sausage butties but to have the option to bolster up the buffet with things we have brought ourselves. Does this seem fair?
