The cost of living continues to affect households across the UK - with the price of a cold one being far from an exception to this trend.

The average cost of a pint of draught lager rose to £4.61 by September 2023, according to the Office of National Statistics.

Coventry is the cheapest city in the UK for a pint, according to the new map.

It will cost you £3.45 to enjoy a pint on average in the Central England city.

Although the price of a pint has rocketed in recent years, there are still a few cities where can pop in for one and still pay less than £4.

These cities include Newcastle upon Tyne at £3.67 as well as Preston, Dundee, Sheffield, Leicester, Reading, Bournemouth and Southampton all coming in at £3.94 on average.

The only other city to have the cost of an average pint under £4 was Nottingham at £3.97.

On the other side of the scale, the most expensive city for a pint was (perhaps, unsurprisingly) London at £6.10.

Print prices within the capitals of the UK's three other nations also varied with Belfast coming in at £5.17, Edinburgh at £5 exactly and Cardiff at £4.

Other expensive cities for a pint included Brighton (£5.91), Oxford (£5.20) and Manchester (£5).
