In January, the British Beer and Pub Association said the average cost of a pint in the UK is £4.07.

It estimated that Londoners pay £4.84 on average – although some pubs in the capital already charge over £6

However, those average prices are on the rise due to inflation.

The cost of a pint of beer could jump from £4.07 to £4.40, reaching an eye-watering £5.22 in London.
