Cumbria one of cheapest places in United Kingdom to buy pint of beer”

According to the Good Pub Guide, Herefordshire and Yorkshire have the cheapest pints at £3.31.

This year's cheapest places to but a pint are Yorkshire and Herefordshire, which offer bargain boozing with an average cost is £3.31 a pint, up 10p on last year's price. "London has historically had the most expensive pints, and there are now a lot of craft beers sold there that are upwards of £5 a pint, but interestingly this year the most expensive average pint is in Surrey".

However, the new growing wave of pubs brewing their own beer is saving customers money, paying just £3.09 a pint, 51p less than the national average.

The most expensive places to drink include Sussex (£3.82), Hertfordshire (£3.81) and the Scottish Islands (£3.80).

The average pint now costs £3.60, up by 13p on previous year.

The Guide showed that increasing numbers of pubs are offering accommodation, food and outside catering services, taking business away from restaurants.

Good Pub Guide editor Fiona Stapley said that brewers and pubs have been dealt a huge blow by the Chancellor's move to increase duty on beer for the first time in five years, meaning prices have been passed on to customers.

"It's this entrepreneurial spirit that will keep pubs alive and kicking for years to come, despite all the doom and gloom around".
