    Who says you can't get a pint in London for under a fiver?

    Yes. I had three halves in the Southampton the other night, varying strengths up to a point and they were all £2.21.

    Railway Tavern the other night too and Adnam's Mosaic is £4.20 a pint and all Five Points beers are £4.30 a pint, though the selection is down on what we experienced in 2017.

    The Wenlock is expensive though. Three halves the other night and they were all £2.50, which is a lot for an alehouse.

    You can find cheaper beer around in certain areas.

    This is because their pricing policy involves a calculation based on abv - see my recent review: Southampton Arms

    or to save you clicking, and for future reference (as if ) "...the new (or new to me) pricing scheme. Whereas they used to charge a standard price for everything, that now only applies up to 4.4% abv and is £4.42 for cask (£4.97 for keg). Above that the price is determined by a formula: abv % x 96p (or £1.13 for keg). So my half of Howling Hops 5.5% was 48p x 5.5 = £2.64. Added to my half of the Elusive Microball Mild 3.7% for £2.21, my total was £4.85. (One anomaly is that a 4.5% beer comes to £4.32 for a pint, so is cheaper than one at 4.4%!) "

    Yes. £1.70 a half for Redemption's Trinity a couple of nights ago in The Queens Head, though quite a weak beer. A month ago I paid a reasonable £2.25 for a half of Fyne Ales Yarl at The White Horse shortly after paying £2.30 for a half of Fosters at The Queen Elizabeth.

    Yes. I had a hunch this might be the case; I'd had something a couple of weeks earlier which was quite strong and the price had really shot up from my previous drinks.

    Did see that formula listed but too complicated .Was a bit surprised with £4.42 for 2 half's.

    Also I meant that the beers were cheap compared with other areas.

    The Antelope - not a strong beer, but Volden Session the other night at £3.30 a pint and only 10p more than Moby's visit over four years earlier.

    UK beer costs soar as average price of pint tops £8 in one London pub

    "In one pub in London, which CGA did not name, the average price of a pint was £8.06 – the most expensive it has ever recorded, in its survey of more than 5,550 random bars and pubs.

    The cheapest was in Lancashire and cost £1.79."

    I had a couple of halves in Pudsey for £1 and £1.20 respectively. In the Sam Smiths pub I paid a whopping £1.50 for a half. These were all keg beers.

    I haven't seen any £1.79 pints in Yorkshire.
