    Most of the pubs I've been to since 12 April have maintained previous prices (Raven Inn £2.70, Fat Cat £2.80, Sheffield Tap £3.60), but the Kelham Island Tavern seems slightly more expensive (£3.30); Cutlers Arms in Rotherham (Chantry Brewery) has gone up from £2.50 to £3, and Stancill Brewery's Closed Shop has gone up from around £2.80 to £3, £3.10 or £3.20. Most of the beer I bought during lockdown was not from supermarkets, so I don't see these prices as a problem. I do agree with Nick Davies that charging more to take away from a hatch in a plastic glass is a bit cheeky.

Or are made to faff around on your phone.
    Oh for the return to the £4.00 pint! One of my last pre-lockdown pubs charged me £5.40 for a pint of Guinness.

    If things like hatch service, phone-faffing (especially if you have to order each pint from the pub's website and plastic cups are on the cards, I think I'd rather stay at home.

    What annoys is that those who reserve a table on their heated terrace get full table service and glass glasses, the passing trade queue at a hatch to sit on picnic benches with plastic beakers. Anywhere else in the world those enjoying full service would also enjoy a 20% service charge or a different set of prices.

    Wise choice.

    Some of these prices would be outrageous for London even under the current circumstances. I paid £4.80 for a pint of Ilkley Lotus (5.9%) at The Lord Tredegar last October - indoors, in a glass made of glass.

    £5.70 for Purity Session IPA here this afternoon. The alternative was Doom Bar at £4.15, some of us have standards, but why writing "craft" on the badge gets another thirty bob on the ticket price is beyond me. Cask Mad Goose would have been £4.55 if they had any.

    Oh and you have to prod the heater every five minutes to get respite from the bitter east wind; I'd have thought the prices M&B are after would pay for the heaters to be running full tilt 24x7.

    The Three Guineas whacked prices up to London levels after the refurb a couple of years back - the Fullers beers are still just about tolerable but anything that isn't has a 20%+ premium. Prior to that, the Allied was, for many years, the most expensive cask pub in town. 'Reassuringly expensive' (was the Vanilla Stout poor quality in the sub-Good Beer Guide quality sense?)

    The Nags prices have gone up by 10-20p - which was likely to have happened pandemic or no pandemic, I imagine.

    If Humph wasn't such a moron he'd get the Lower Ship open in town and make a killing; Spoons have a monopoly on the cheap end of the market in RG1.

    After second lockdown, Guinness cost £5.40 in this below average place, now made up to look like an airport departure lounge bar. I hate to think what prices will be like in Zone 1-2 when I get back in pubs next month.
