Wetherspoon bucks price rise trends & offers £1.49 pint!

JD Wetherspoon has today announced that a total of 763 Wetherspoon pubs across the UK are now selling a pint of beer for £1.49.

The pubs are serving Ruddles Best (in some pubs Greene King IPA is being served) for the value-for-money price.

Founder and chairman Tim Martin said, “Our pubs have always offered a great choice of real ale at excellent prices.

“At a time when prices are increasing on almost everything, we are delighted to be able to buck the trend.

“The last time a pint of beer averaged less than £1.50 was in 1992, which makes our beer unbeatable value.”

Editor Becky says, 'The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) research has put the average cost at £4.07 in the UK, and those in London are paying £4.84. However, finder.com put the average London pint price at £5.50!

'No idea how Tim's group is absorbing the cost of this but bravo my good man! For so many, a pint down the pub has been increasingly a big treat rather than a regular occurance, and this fantastic pirce will mean more folks can enjoy this most British of traditions.'
