Propel Hospitality reports that the new changes means the cost of a pint of Carlsberg has risen from £2.39 to £2.57, a pint of Stella has gone from £3.35 to £3.60 and a Leffe has risen from £3.85 to £4.14. A pint of Corona is now £3.71 instead of £3.45 and a pint of San Miguel has risen by 26p to £3.71.

At the start of the year Wetherspoons did warn that prices could climb to help battle the rising food and energy costs.

Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon told The Sun: “Wetherspoon has increased prices on food and drink by 7.5%.

We believe that our prices are still very competitive in all the locations that we trade, even after the increase. Most businesses in the hospitality industry have had to deal with big price increases in the past year or two. We have tried to keep our prices competitive, bearing in mind that customers have suffered from inflation too.

He added: “The 7.5% increase is less than the rate of inflation.”
