Rise of 10p in average cost of a pint

Each year the editors of the Good Pub Guide carry out a national survey of beer prices. This year their findings are that there has been a considerable increase in the cost of the average pint of beer in Britain – it’s now £3.79, a substantial 10p increase from last year.  

And there’s a whopping £1.11-a-pint difference between Shropshire the cheapest county at £3.46, and the most expensive at £4.57 in London.  Also, there are now four counties where the average price is over the £4 mark – Sussex (£4.02), Scotland (£4.03), Surrey £4.06) and London £4.57). Previously it’s only been London that was over £4. And there’s a massive 51p difference between London and the next most pricey county, Surrey.
