The results are in and according to the latest statistics from the Good Pub Guide 2016, the average price of a British pint is now £3.46. This means punters are paying 15% more than last year’s figures. And this is despite the fact that over the past 12 months beer duty has significantly dropped.
Overall, the rise has meant that across the UK there is now a huge 82p difference between the cheapest and most expensive pints to be found. Definitely not good news for the hordes of British beer fans out there.

Kent – £3.62
Given its proximity to London and its status as an up and coming city, it’s no surprise that Kentish pints cost in excess of £3.60.

London – £3.92

Of course, you do pay a premium for the location and we don’t hear anyone complaining about the fact that London is brimming with world class attractions, a fantastic food scene, incredible shopping and an amazing vibe.
