Tube Map Shows The Cheapest Pint Near Every Tube Station

Adam conducted this gruelling research for StoreKit, a company that specialises in card-payment systems. He's spliced and diced his data in many imaginative ways, summarised in three blog posts. Find out which line offers the best-value pub crawl. Discover which tube station is farthest from any pub. What's the cheapest zone to drink in, and the most consistently affordable brand of beer? Or, if you're so inclined, you can drill down into his data, criticise his methodology and challenge his definition of a pub.

It's a good effort but some of these are questionable.

The William Morris in Hammersmith does a cheaper pint than £4.10 you'd pay in the Swan and is within a stones throw. E.g. you could get a Doom Bar for £1.99. In Shepherds Bush, a pint of Greene King at the Central Bar is £1.89 so less than the £1.99 quoted for Bud Light.

like skyscraper101 i don't think it is the cheapest pint near any tube station, for example by highgate station the woodman's £4.30 pint can probably be bettered by a two minute walk down the way to the highgate tavern.

Yep. I've drunk at the WM and can attest that it is mega cheap. £2.10 a pint of ale.

tbh a map of Wetherspoons locations is going to get pretty close to this. ;)

£1.89 for a pint of Greene King is £1.89 too much, mind.

It is well worth a read. It's as if Adam was doing his very best to ward off nitpickers in advance. Good work, sir!

Here's a snippet:

A bar is not a pub. A building which describes itself as both a bar and a pub at different moments is generally judged a pub – but what’s written on the side of the establishment holds more weight than how it’s described online. Therefore, Springfield Bar & Grill in Bounds Green is a pub, because it has the word “Tavern” written on one side of it; whereas the Railway Bar & Grill near Buckhurst Hill is not a pub, despite some pub-like elements. Daly’s in Harrow & Wealdstone is a pub – they appear to have listed themselves variously as a bar and a pub; the front of the building does not say “bar” (it merely says Daly’s); plus, Daly’s participates in some key “pub” criteria (see below). The Ashbourne near Hanger Lane is not a pub, despite its pubby name – because it appears to describe itself as a bar and restaurant from the front, and is available on Just Eat.
