    How much is a pint in your local? 7th Sep 17 at 10:17 AM
    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.

    Amazing that they can afford to drink in there...

    Pubs local to me fit the 3-4 range at the moment - but only just, and it's cask bitter, guiness and lagers are more expensive. I do know one fairly local pub that is somewhat cheaper, but it's a free house rather than a tied (Enterprise Inns etc) or managed (Shepard Neame etc) pub. About 6 months ago I was in a Sheps pub near Goudhurst where the sptfire bitter was 4 compared (at the time) to 3.60 nearer home - but even nearer home now is 3.80-90. The odd one out are Marstons Inns, where the bitter is not much over 3/pint (and the food is good value too).

    There is a pub in the town I work in which sells a pint of lager or bitter for 2.50 or Guinness for 2.60.

    the next Wetherspoon beer festival will be 2.09pt for us.


    Their(WS) new menu come out next week, the only thing new is the price rises, 10p+ on most things, and a fancy new cover which makes it look very nice for our pub(s).

    wetherspoons in our town is always cheapest, a pint for just over 2.00. Elsewhere in town can be as much as 4.

    I went out for a pint with friends last weekend (for the first time in 569 days), and a pint in London was 5.80 (a bar next to the gherkin building so central London).

    Our local just had a price increase imposed on them by the brewery, they've gone from being the cheapest pub in the area to being the second most expensive overnight.


    And the punters are talking with their feet.


    Tennents Lager 3.00-3.50 per pint locally, decent lagers are 4+ per pint
