I’ve seen and heard a lot of differences here.
I’m not the type to go into a pub and just say “2 pints of Beer X please” in English.
In English I’d tend to say something like “Could I have 2 pints of X” or “Can I have…”
Every website/book/blog has pretty much a different phrase listed, which makes things slightly more confusing.
What is your preferred way of asking for a drink in a tavern of your choice?
And if someone replies with OK, then that is actually perfect Welsh as well - (Oh) Cei - (Oh) yes you can.
What you really need in your bar toolkit for New Years Eve is the welsh for:
“Oy Butt, I’ve been waiting here for hours, is anyone serving here or what.”
Followed by "please don’t hit me again"
We could maybe have some stock banter phrases, listed somehwhere:
“No, I was before you”: or the more polite - “go on, you were before me”: Also: “he/she was before me”
and the chatting to the person behind you - “the service here is cr.p isn’t it”; “they need more staff, don’t they”.
Also “top that one up will you” or “I can’t drink that, it’s off”
Excellent. Or, “no mate, it was definitely the dog”
And if you’re a bit strapped for cash, you could always try the “I gave you a twenty”
Don’t forget “cyri, hanner a hanner”
“Doner mawr efo saws chili”
Dw i’n mynnu peint o gwrw a llawer o hopys - rwan hyn, cyn i mi farw!
So, a pint of beer and plenty of hops?
If it was ‘â llawer o hopys’ I would read it as ‘with lots of hops’.
Ah, of course. I forgot that most people have trouble adding a to bach to letters
I’d definitely go for ‘ga i’ here.
