Londoners continue to be charged more for a pint

An annual survey by the Good Pub Guide has revealed there is an 87p difference between the cheapest and most expensive pints in the UK.

A beer in Herefordshire costs an average price of £3.21, whereas in London punters are charged around £4.08 for a pint, a difference of 27%.

This is an increase of 6% compared with last year, when the price gap was estimated at 82p.

The average price of a pint of beer in the UK is £3.47, only 1p more than last year. This is a small increase in comparison to the survey carried out in 2014/2015 which showed a 15p rise.

Findings also show pubs that brew their own beer charge 48p less than the national average, with typical prices of £2.99.

The Good Pub Guide, now in its 35th edition, is an annual publication that recognises the best pubs in the country.

The Horse Guards Inn pub in Tillington, West Sussex was crowned Pub of the Year 2017 by the Good Pub Guide.
