Letter: Food prices at Chatsworth Christmas Fair were eye-watering

I too was a victim of a dreaded food "hike", like your letter writer last week.

The wife and I went to the opening of the Chatsworth House Christmas fair with relatives.

Not wanting to be left out, I paid TWENTY quid for the privilege of parking my motor 50 feet nearer the house. Looking round the stalls, most of the prices were eye-watering, to say the least.

Even so, not having had any breakfast, we decided on a cob apiece. She had a hot roast pork with stuffing and apple sauce and I had a plain bacon cob.

One reader is unhappy at the price of food at the recent Chatsworth House Christmas fair.

The roast pork cob was £8 and my bacon cob was £5. The roast pork one in particular had a filling that looked like the contents of a child’s nappy, even though the wife said it was ‘not bad’.

So if you're planning to go to Chatsworth for the fair, eat before you go and take PLENTY of cash.
