    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.

    Fucking hell, if I ever moved back to London, I think I'd have a terrible shock. I get grumpy when a pint's more than £3.70.

    Back in the day I was awed by tales of the price of a pint in places like Norway being equivalent to £5. How we laughed.

    Its all very well stating the price of what is possibly the cheapest pint but is it drinkable? I mean, Bud Light, Fosters, Carling Etc.
    Come on, you just wouldn't.

    Hi – some people here are saying it shows the cheapest pint near any pub. That's not the case. It shows the cheapest pint in the closest pub – only one pub was called per station, so if "there's a cheaper pint further from the station" that's not relevant to what's being explored here. Here's the full methodology:

    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!
