Lets face it, the New Inn is the same as all the other pubs with moorings,  Total rip off merchants and out for a quick buck and exhorbitant profit.  ¬!!

Jason - you clearly have no idea how expensive it is to replace quay heading! Not much profiteering going on!!!

Yet there are waterside pubs that charge much less, and even some waterside pubs that don't charge at all (provided you use the pub).

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Precisely! So why do others need to ? We can only assume it's as TT suggests - greed.

The New Inn has never needed to do this before and was always popular with holidaymakers, private owners and locals. We have in the past been part of a group of 8 at Halloween & New Years Eve parties, spending plenty of money, and when moorings were not completely full. Some of us have discussed this new policy already and said we feel we now won't be going there at all, even if the mooring fee may not be applicable at those particular times. We all usually visit at other times too but can't support these charges and thus the establishment.

We have never been back in The Swan since its implementation of charges, and we often pass by on a summers evening and it's not full.

With the cost of living rising so much I suspect that many holidaymakers will be carefully watching their pennies this year, and may well choose to cook and drink on board when faced with an extra £15 for a mooring when they can mudweight, wild moor or get in early at a 24 hour public mooring. They may also be looking carefully at what they are getting for their buck in terms of holiday accommodation costs, and be glad to turn their back on the UK and head for sunnier cheaper places ! The staycation honeymoon may be over...

Marshy, you are right, quay heading is expensive to replace but taken over the life of the quay heading it is peanuts. Lets be very very generous and say it would cost £20k to replace the current quay, it would have an expected life of 20 years, that is £1000 per year, lets say 18 weeks peak season, thats £55 per week, thats 5.5 boats at £10 as I said profiteering (greed).

if it is to be it is up to me.

The £15 charge is unconfirmed. I really don't believe that the moorings will be empty because some choose not to go if there if they have to pay. I could see the issue if it was maybe a solo cruiser or even two folk on a boat who only wanted a snack or small meal, then yes , the cost could then be prohibitive. A boat with potentially four or more holiday makers on board , wanting to eat and drink for a period , - then the cost would only be a fraction of their spend. My average round in there is £10 for two people. If I really was so bothered then I could have one round less and moor up overnight.

At the end of the day it is a matter of personal choice and we are not 100% sure about the fee situation yet.
If a fee is imposed that is not refundable then those who do not want to pay can go elsewhere and those that are happy to pay can pay and stay!

Well, its is nice to know that Womack will be quieter next year.  People do not seem to mind paying for mooring there, albeit less than the New Inn, but without the the samwe facilities.  The quay heading is being replaced there next month, the last time it was done was less than 20 years ago.   My quay heading only lasted 12 years.

Will they be employing somebody to control the moorings?
Maybe yes and the fee is to cover their wages?
They won’t have anybody to control the car park so they will be able to have free parking?
This could be the answer that you can park free with a car but have to pay to moor a boat?

Bella, reasonable point, but they have always had someone controlling the moorings, It's a cost thart's built into the general wages bill, as are the glass collectors waitresses, waiters, bar staff etc.

The person who used to control the moorings doesn't work there now. He moved to the Ferry. Maybe he has negotiated a new contract Smile . There were only three boats moored at the New Inn  over Christmas and the manager told me that it was like "parking wars".
