They key is to spend a reasonable amount of money. Of course if you are taking up space in a coffee shop, it is reasonable to buy some coffee and a muffin. If you're there for four hours, maybe more than once. If you can afford 20 quid rulebooks and baskets full of minis, you can afford that.
nice to hear that within your lodge, everybody seems to be well stocked with rulebooks and minis.
But not every Lodge has a lot of members with some Hundereds of Dollar/Pound/Euro in rulebooks and minis, some lodge members may be schoolkids, students, people with not that well paying jobs, or whatever, who are struggeling to buy the books they like to have.
Maybe you can afford playing in your pub (i missed to find prices, so im quite curious to know what you spend during a game slot in yout pub), but who are you to tell anyone else that they CAN afford playing there?
just my 2 cent
