As we know there have always been regional variations in the price of a pint of beer.
An interesting survey click here now tells us that you can pay as much as £5 for a pint in a London-style bar (whatever one of those is. Presumably somewhere that people with more money than sense go drinking).
Alternatively you can go to Wetherspoons where you can still buy a pint of real ale for less than £2 even in London.
So, the message is to stick to real ale (as opposed to the fizzy, frozen, tasteless gnat’s urine referred to as lager).
Wetherspoons has always been my preferred drinking venue. What do others think?
