Derby and Inverness have been named the two UK cities that serve the cheapest pints in the country.

Research has revealed that the East Midlands and Highlands hubs are now the last strongholds of the hallowed 3-pint pint, as pub-goers pay an average of £4 for a house pint.

The record-breaking average comes as rising food prices, energy bills and interest rates have been boosted by the cost-of-living crisis and a drop in consumer spending power.

To find the cheapest pint in the UK for under £4, comparison site Finder used crowdsourced consumer price database Numbeo and cost of living calculator Expatistan to derive the average price of a pint in each UK city.

The website compared the twenty cheapest cities to buy half a liter of beer. Here is their full list:

1st Derby – £3.00

2. Inverness – £3.00

3. Kingston upon Hull – £3.32

4. Perth – £3.46

5. Gloster – £3.50

6. Peterborough – £3.50

7. Leicester – £3.63

8. Swansea – £3.65

9. Aberdeen – £3.67

10. Preston – £3.69

11. Aberystwyth – £3.70

12. Northampton – £3.74

13. Coventry – £3.78

14. Leeds – £3.79

15. Plymouth – £3.84

16. Newcastle – £3.88

17. Southend – £3.91

18. Read – £3.99

19. Exeter—£4.00

20. Ipswich – £4.00

The results follow a recent survey of the UK public commissioned by the Campaign for Real Ale, which found a 10 per cent rise in the number of people saying the average price of a pint is prohibitively expensive.

In 2019, 42 percent of respondents to a YouGov poll for CAMRA said the cost of a pint at the bar was prohibitive — but that number rose to 52 percent when the poll was repeated last week.
