Unfair pricing of half pints: 
25 February, 2016
Category: Default
A recent survey by CAMRA of pubs which were charging more for a half pint than half the cost of a pint discovered almost 50 per cent of licensees who overcharge for half pint measures are adding between six and 20p to the cost of a half. Of the pubs surveyed, almost one in 10 were charging between 41p and 50p more for a half pint compared to half the cost of a pint. In some cases this saw pubs charge £2 for a half pint, where a pint of the same beer would cost £3. To add to the confusion, 60 per cent of pubs in the survey did not display a price list. CAMRA recognises that there may be a need for pubs to round up to the nearest five pence. However, the wide difference in premium added suggests that some pubs are unfairly penalizing customers trying to drink responsibly by choosing half-pint measures and in some cases obscuring this mark up by not clearly displaying prices.
