    This should be qualified by London average price is £5.19

    It spills over, my locals are Fuller's, and from talking to landlords Head Office assumes us mangle wurzels are daft enough to pay the same London centric prices, HO realised error and now conforms to local prices, including matching JDW prices around £2.50 mark

    I would hope that is Central London as the £5.00 pint hasn't reached me yet. The Rose & Crown is still under £4.00 (unless it's Dark Star IS) and the Bell is still under £4.00 but only with CAMRA discount. As far as I know the cheapest Guest Ale price in Greater London is the Romford World's Inn which sadly is a Lloyds. It's still £1.99 there but I wouldn't be surprised if it all changes today or next week as the January Sale ended yesterday and I won't be surprised at all to see them raising their beer prices. They normally introduce new prices on a Wednesday.

    I don't care how cheap the beer mentioned in the article is, personally I wouldn't want any of it. You can still get decent beer (IMO) sub £4.00 in good pubs in London if you pick the right pubs.

    That average price of £5.19 is for cask and keg rather than just cask.Cant agree with you Moby I think £4.50 a pint now seems to be the average price in Central London and about £4.30 locally for cask beer .

    I don't think the average is anything like £5.19 a pint in London so don't know where they got their figures. But under £2.00 at https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/25637/ might go some way towards explaining the recent review. I stuck my head round the door once a couple of years back but it seemed a bit Silence of the Lambs so didn't pluck up the courage to actually have a drink.

    Agree that £4.50 is the average but Iv'e recently had pints in The Harp and Tapping The Admiral under £4.00 (albeit with CAMRA discount, £3.50 in the latter),Oakham Citra at £3.80 in the King Charles 1 , Kings Cross ,without discount, The Southampton Arms and Euston Tap may have just recently broached the £4.00 mark. That said it no longer shocks me to be charged nearer £5.00 in other places.

    In Central or even Inner London (excluding Spoons and Sam Smiths)?

    I have noticed the Nicolson pubs increase prices monthly.Its hard to find a cask less than £4.50 now.

    Thanks, I saw that. I'm happy to swerve London completely (apart from suburban JDWs), usually for the West Midlands but the two Margate micropubs I went to this year were charging £3.00 a pint for cask.
