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.

    It would be interesting to have an option (or a separate poll) to find out how many people no longer go to the pub for a pint but simply buy in their beer from a supermarket and drink at home these days

    £3.70 now. This is a small market town 400 year old pub.


    A few years ago it was £2.50.


    I go to the pub every 2 months or so to meet friends. I did also drink at home where the same pint from a supermarket in bulk worked out at about 60p. I'm stopped drinking at home now for the last few months.

    There also needs to be an option for 'don't go to the pub as all my locals have closed down or have been turned into chain restaurants'.

    My local, (inside the M25), has specials on whenever live football is on. Can get 4 pints and change out of £10.

    Round here in my part of West Yorkshire:

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

    The town/city nightspots hitting £4+.
    Hi there! We’ve had to remove your signature. It was so good we removed it because we cannot think of one so good as you had and need to protect others from seeing such a great signature.

    No idea. I stopped drinking in pubs years ago because it was too expensive.

    It was inevitable that over priced beer would see the end of the 'local' and that fodder would take it's place.
    Now people just pop in for some cheap, !!!!! food then leave.

    Such a shame.
