    We'd love to know what a pint costs in your neck of the woods.

    Are you living within spitting distance of a holy grail, super cheap pub or do you need to sell a liver to buy one in your local?

    Next time you're in your local vote in the poll and post up a pic of your pint and tell us how much it cost.

    Forum regulars will remember we've asked this before, in 2013. Have a look back at our previous How much is a pint in your local? poll to compare.

    £4.50 to £5.50 at most places in Leamington Spa.

    Crazy, though the "extra pound a pint because it has the word Craft in it" doesn't help matters.

    We stick to our Wetherspoons, where it's £2-3

    I can get a pint of water in my kitchen for about 0.2p.

    From the sounds of it..heroin and smack are probably cheaper and just as plentiful supply.

    Having said that the pint of Death or Glory sounds like a nice proper pint..not like the blonde !!!! full of bubbles consumed by people with taste buds removed.

    I don't drink, part due to not feeling need and part as not much in my area!, apart from Wetherspoons a "cheap" pub (nearest one is a mile and half away) is around £3 a pint, most are £3.60 or so for cheap nasty stuff like Carling or £4 or more for a Heineken

    I get the 12 x 330ml bottles for £10 from Morrisons on a regular basis.

    Around £3.30 at Farmhouse Inns.
    A City on the South Coast.

    Wetherspoons around £2-3. Used to be able to get Fosters for £1.95 in a Wetherspoons about a year ago. Not anymore.

    Locally, £1.50 for a pint of Cola.

    Some days it absolutely does not pay to be the designated driver.

    Round here in my part of West Yorkshire:

    Generally slightly above or below the £3 mark (+/- 50p).

    Thing is when you go to a pub you're not really buying a pint(or six).
    Its a tradition, an experience, whether it be competitive games like crib/darts/dommies/poker, or a quiz, to watch sport, or play bingo, a meeting place for old (or new) mates, an offline dating forum, a place to do business and make contacts etc etc.

    If anyone goes to a pub just to drink thats crazy.

    I drink in a pub most nights I wouldnt dream of drinking at home.

    Tonight is cronies night, where two hours of total bowlax will be shared.

    Not a relevant question to ask given the context of the poll. The poll is asking how much a pint is in the local, not whether you drink or not.

    If you don't drink and therefore don't know, presumably there is no need to get involved. If there was a poll on "how much is 1kg of haggis in your local supermarket?" I personally wouldn't get involved as I do not eat haggis and therefore neither know nor care.

    Too much, far too much.

    Don't have a local per se, but the pubs I do go in probably £3.80 for urine like Carlsberg/Carling/Fosters, going up to £4.80 for (what I consider decent lagers) Heineken/Kronenbourg, £5-£5.50 Peroni/Moretti (enjoy these but tend to avoid due to price!). Ales tend to be cheaper, averaging £3.50-£4.

    £5.50...! O_O Central London. Around £4 if you go for the old-school ales but anything lager / crafty ale is averaging around £5.50 now. I saw a pint of craft beer for £10.75 last week... I can't tell you what it tastes like because I did not try it!
