    How much is a pint in your local? 7th Sep 17 at 9:17 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.

    Have a look at these prices from Maidstone Kent. I couldn't believe it. I know that it is being touted as a "Bierkeller", but you must have more money than sense to drink there.

    I had a nice pint of Adnams in a pub in Biddenden back in August and it was just over 3.

    I live and drink town centre but don`t use Wetherspoons as it`s little more than a foodhall. I pay 2.59 for Carling and from 2.80 to 3.00 for tennants lager. I tend to drink in the cheaper pubs as they are nearest to home. 35ml Smirnoff for around 1.70 and 1.00 for a can of diet coke, drinking at home not such a great deal now since the nanny state mentality kicked in , in Scotland, it didn`t just hit the cheap cider drinkers, no cheap spirit offers for us 4 to 5 more per bottle than across the border.

    I'm in North London and expect to pay 4.50 for a Heineken. In my local Wetherspoons it is 3.10 and cheaper on a Monday

    I haven't paid 6...yet.

    Peroni in well-to-do Primrose Hill was 5.70

    Stopped going to the pub when the demands of parenthood made it unenjoyable and now the kids are all grown up I would choke at paying the price of a decent pint.

    Between 4.10 and 5.10 in Bridge of Allan, Scotland.

    I often drink in Brewdog which is generally almost a fiver and not always a pint for that.
    Not an expert, but like pensions, tax questions and giving guidance. There is no substitute for tailored financial advice.
