    I guess if you are doomed to support Tottenham you'll dig deep to blot out the pain.

    At least they named their ground after a pub.

    Default Mapped: The areas of the UK with the least reasonably priced pints

    According to London's free City AM morning newspaper, the average price for a pint in the UK is £3.60.


    This also reports that, on average, the UK beer drinker thinks that their pint is 60p too expensive, allowing for the expected regional variations.

    The cost of a reliably fine pint of real ale in our village club is £3.00.

    I think this might make me reasonably happy?

    My average cost locally is now £4.00, the average is sure to go up today whilst I am in Bermondsey.

    "It turns out that, on average, British people think that a reasonable price for a pint of beer is around 60p lower than the actual cost."

    It was always so. I'm sure that when a pint was 1/11d everyone grumbled that 1/6d was pushing it.
