JD Wetherspoon has increased the cost of its drinks in yet another price hike. The changes were made on March 1 when the popular pub chain’s drinks rose by an average of 10p nationwide and 20p in London.
A spokesperson for the chain confirmed the price hike, but added that the company “always aims to keep prices as competitive as possible”.
Spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “At times Wetherspoon raises the price of their drinks. We always aim to keep our prices as competitive as possible.
“Drink prices in the majority of our pubs have increased by an average of 10 pence from Tuesday March 1, with a 20 pence increase in pubs in and around London. This represents an average increase of 2% in the majority of Wetherspoon pubs and 4%. cent in pubs in and around London.
“We believe our beverage offering continues to represent excellent value for money.”
A Spoons punter who visited The Power Monkey in Exmouth, Devon, reported seeing the price of Ruddles drop from 99p to £1.49, Devon Live reports.
They said: “Went in on Monday night with £2 cash hoping to buy a few cheeky Ruddles before meeting my wife when she finished her exercise class, but when I arrived I found that the prices all seemed to have gone up. It’s still cheaper than anywhere else, but that meant I had to pull out my card for the second pint.
“It didn’t ruin my evening, but it was something I didn’t expect.”
