Pricey pubs

One of the great campaigning movements of our time, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), has submitted a supercomplaint to the Office of Fair Trading, arguing that the pub market is not working. Pubs are closing up and down the country, but in those that remain and are tied to big companies, CAMRA says that consumers pay over the odds.

There is a consumer theory that the one thing men can always talk about is the price of beer. But at £2.67 a pint in a tied pub, surely there is a case to answer?
