All our rugby reporter Bill Lothian wanted when he stepped up to the bar at the Golf Tavern in Bruntsfield was a cheap and cheerful bag of crisps to accompany his pint.

The Evening News swiftly got on the case, and as we tried to track down the Capital’s priciest potato snack we found that customers are willing to dig deep when hunger strikes, even in the credit “crunch”.
