I love the idea of Wales Manor, I really do. I love wine and I love outdoor concerts. However, I won’t go back anytime soon until they change their policy toward outside beverages.
You can bring in outside food…great for a picnic but all beverages must be purchased from Wales. No outside WATER is permitted. That’s what really grinds my gears. It’s freakin 105 degrees outside and you’re forcing us to purchase your bottled water? I think it’s a slap in the face to the patrons to charge $10 per person just to get on the property and then nickeling and diming on beverages. I would pay $15 to get in just to be able to bring in water.
I can understand the rule against no outside alcoholic beverages. Even no outside soda or Gatorade makes sense but no WATER? Come on…I realize you’re trying to stay afloat but my wallet is trying to stay afloat. I drink A LOT of water. I would love to purchase a bottle of wine and have my water jug at my side while listening to the sounds under the stars.
It’s definitely worth a trip out to the manor once if you haven’t been there. For me, however, I’ve been there…done that. If you have another opinion, please share!
