    Well done, for not raising their prices......Just wish they'd raise the temperature of their beer.

    My local is trying to shift Green King IPA draught at £1.20p a pint. John Smiths , Pedigree IPA and Doombar at £ 1.90. Lagers £2.00 to £2.30.
    House spirits at £2.00 a double. Not bad for a small town out in the boonies.

    In Dartford most pubs are still under £3 a pint. The most expensive are the Sheps and Youngs pubs which are heading towards £3.50. One pub sells Bombardier (and a surprisingly decent quality given that it's a rubbish pub) for £1.95 and my regular the Ivy leaf knocks out 6 of its ales at £2.95. The Paper Moon ('Spoons) has a Sunday Ale Club (cost £2 for 6 months) which knocks 50p a pint off normal prices bringing some ales down to £1.89. Even the music orientated Bull N Vic did Adnams Ghost Ship at £2.75 last night so overall I'm quite happy with prices round my way at the moment.

    I was asked £3.70 for Adnam's Ghost Ship in the Thrree Chimneys here in the Weald the other week. I know he is expensive, even for round here. Otherwise most "reasonable " pubs seem to ask around the £3.30 mark. Ouch.

    I was charged £3.85 for a pint of Lees Diamond Jubilee in Sams Chop House in Manchester on Saturday.

    They've always been expensive, but that is a rip off, even for city centre Manchester.

    I found the same offer today in The Wibbas Down in Wimbledon, not bad for an Arundel Footslogger at 4.6%, oddly the Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale (3.8%) was £2.30. Still good value nonetheless.

    And last night the Rudgate Ruby Mild in the Edward Rayne, Raynes Park, was £1.99 a pint, although other guest ales were more. A really good pint it was too - I'm in danger of becoming a "mild" convert!

    The eagle in Eastbourne is £2 a pint as they clear out for jubilee beer festival. dark star and Rother valley on offer along with a jubilee beer and black stallion from Arundel. It's like finding a twenty pound note you didn't know you had.

    I think you'll find that itis just the GUEST ales that are £1.99, although wait a while before I shoot that statement down in flames!

    I was in the King's Ford on Tuesday and all the "guest" beers were £1.99. HOWEVER the East London Brewery's Pale was also £1.99 and it isn't on the current guest list.

    When I went to the Tally Ho a few weeks ago I was charged £1.99 for Adnams Mayday (I thought it was a mistake). I went to the Drum last Saturday and was charged the standard guest price of £2.09 (I think). Mayday is not on the current guest list!

    It seems to me the whole Summer Special Offer is a bit of a shambles!

    Beers in the three pubs i use most are between £2 20 and £2 90 a pint depending on volume% , there are still a few places you can get a pint for £2 like the Raven and Station Hotels in Wellington if you dont mind Marstons or pyschopaths

    Strangely the new JDW in Wellington is around 30-40p a pint dearer than the ones up the road in the usually more expensive Shrewsbury
