What could be Britain's cheapest pint is being flogged by a London-based pub for just £1.49.

The Walnut Tree in Leytonstone is offering the cut price on both Greene King IPA and Ruddles Best.

In 2019, the UK's cheapest pint was revealed to also be Greene King IPA, available at The Turls Green in Bradford for just £1.89.

Now it looks as if the Wetherspoons in North East London has gone 40p better.

One drinker said yesterday (July 7): "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."

The news comes just after the UK's most expensive pint was revealed to be a £80.15 imported American craft ale at The Craft Beer Co chain in Brixton, South London.

Reviews for The Walnut Tree, a boozer situated in a building that is over 350-years-old, have lauded the cut prices and service.

"Very good prices for food and drink, even more so considering the location," reads one.

A third said: "OUTSTANDING STAFF!! Everything was just perfect!!! Very nice and polite staff, food delivered on time, omg how good is this place I'm so happy."

"The best place to go out if you don't want to overspend," added a fourth.
