I payed £13 for a 1kg (2lb) ham and £22 for a 4kg capon (8lb) so that sounds bang on.

that sounds like a pretty good deal.

As there were just 5 of us for Christmas dinner, I ordered a Capon from our local butcher, requesting a 7lb bird. I also ordered a small ham - around 2 lbs. I paid a £20 deposit. When I went to collect the order, I then had to pay £15.80. So the total came to £35.80. I felt that this seemed rather a lot for a bird that weighed 7lbs 5oz and a small ham that weighed 2lbs 11oz? I queried it (saying that it seemed rather a lot) but the butcher thought I meant that I had a lot of meat and said - "that's fine - Happy Christmas!" There was a big queue of people and he rushed off to serve the next customer. I was too embarrassed to pursue it and so left the shop!! I will eventually forget about it but just have to know whether or not I overpaid!! confused.
