A popular London pub is selling pints for just £1.49, with some customers reckoning it could be Britain’s cheapest boozer.
The prices are so low, it’s thought that The Walnut Tree could be the cheapest pub in Britain.
Back in 2019, The Turls Green in Bradford, West Yorkshire, was hailed as the cheapest pub in the UK after it was found to be flogging pints of Greene King IPA for £1.89, but now The Walnut Tree has managed to undercut it.
As you can imagine, the Wetherspoons-owned pub is a hit with customers – one happy punter said: “It’s a family-orientated pub with pink flowers outside.
“The drinks are cheap and the food tastes good – what more can you want really?
“I come by when I fancy a drink but don’t want to pay crazy London prices – £1.50 is fair enough and means you can get three pints with a fiver.”
A spokesperson for Wetherspoons said: “Like all Wetherspoons pubs, The Walnut Tree is known for its competitive prices.
“People in the area are aware that the pub food and drinks are fairly priced and that is an attraction as it – good service, a wide range of real ales and no music.
“The cheapest pint is a Ruddles or Greene King at £1.49 and The Walnut Tree is a very popular pub. Staff work hard to ensure that they offer customers a great pub in which to socialise.
“The pub serves a wide range of drink and food in a music-free environment – it is well known in the area and attracts a cross-section of customers which creates a good friendly atmosphere.”
Online reviews from the pub are equally as favourable, with pub-goers praising the ‘very good prices for food and drink, even more so considering the location’ and ‘brilliant prices, staff, cleanliness’, while others claim it is ‘the best place to go out if you don’t want to overspend’.
The pub was named after the Walnut Tree House – the area’s oldest building at more than 350 years old – and the site of the pub was part of the same estate until 1870.
Believe it or not, last October, Wetherspoons slashed prices even lower, with Greene King IPA and Ruddles Best being sold for just 99p.
