    At the Alex in WImbledon on Friday, a Youngs pub, the cheapest was the Ordinary (sorry, Original) at £5.05, Special I think £5.20 and Proper Job £5.40, going up to Wimbledon Common, presumably rated as a guest, at £5.50. Quite apart from being at the high end, and charging too much for a local ale , it struck me as rather silly having 10p or so differences between the beers.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    There's been nothing local about it since they shut the brewery 15 years ago.

    In York on Saturday at the Fox & Roman on Tadcaster Road (near the racecourse). A Vintage Inns pub but there's nothing old fashioned about the prices. Black Sheep Bitter was £4.15, and when I switched to Timothy Taylor Landlord it was £4.85, which is pretty close to London prices. (On a recent crawl in York none of the beers breached the £4 mark, so those prices at the F&R are seriously high for this part of the world.)

    £5 for a Brew York Tonkoko (the ordinary 4.3% one) in the York Tap last Friday. It is a place that has suffered a loss of reputation lately.

    Too many beers, not enough customers? With prices like that, it wouldn't be surprising if sales fell off a little.

    Quite, but my point was the Wimbledon Common, which is definitely local and brewed in Merton, was the most expensive and can be had in other pubs nearby much cheaper.
