    Someone will be along soon to help you with this.
    I don't have much experience. My best advice is try and work out how long it will take you to do them. Then decide what you want to earn an hour. Then add a bit on for haggling. If they rip your hand off at the price, you went too low. But it is all part of learning the job.

    It's hard to give a price without seeing the job.. Is it possible you could get up some photos?

    I'd say 75p - £1.00 per pane assuming they're 6' for starters. So that's £30 - £40 before you quote the rest of the pub.

    We do many local pubs. Just work out how long it will take you, to do add 20% as it will always take you longer than you think, then charge 325.00 per hour.
    My local pays me in beer; one clean= 10 pints!!
