    I remember when I holidayed in Malta ten years ago, Price of pint was 75p..

    However in some African countries, they are selling pint for just 20p!

    Sadly the 4 pint has arrived in parts of London, notably in some Mayfair/Knightsbridge pubs. Generally though I'd expect to pay anything between 2.80 to 3.40 in town. Sam Smiths pubs and Spoons are cheaper of course.

    London prices can vary, depending on the particular pub amd the area in general. I work in SW1 and whereas there are pubs that charge around 3.50 a pint, there are others which are a little more reasonable: The Plumbers Arms and Victoria were both serving ales at around the 2.50 mark, on a recent visit. Maldenman is spot-on regarding the 'Spoons prices of course - though I have noticed the cost of Guinness creeping up!

    Guinness is really going up. Using the best price I can buy it in at, and going off the GP (%) calculator from last year (updated with this years VAT rate) it tells me I should be selling it at 3.85. Needless to say I'm not! Glad to say, all being well in the budget (we can dream) Real Ale should be staying at the 2.80 - 3 mark. Worthy of note, at 3 a pint 45p is VAT.

    Sorry for the boring maths, but I'm sure you can understand I've been spending far too much time looking at a spreadsheet and swearing quietly to myself. I typed in a VAT of 20% (my personal prediction for it by the end of the year) and started crying...

    4.00 for a pint of Spitfire in ex-Mr Madge's Punch Bowl last summer. 4.00 for a pint of Rudgate Blonde in the snootier of the Marylebone Beehives last autumn. 3.85 for a pint of Shepherd Neame Late Red in the unexceptional Heeltap (a Davys, near London Bridge) last week.
