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

Eddie Gershon, the Wetherspoon spokesman, said in response to the increased prices that they still believe their prices are competitive.

He explained how most hospitality businesses have struggled with increased prices in recent years.  

He also said the rate of increase in food and drink is still less than the rate of inflation. 

Last year the Watford-based firm, who have close to 850 pubs in Britain and Ireland, were forced to increase the cost of pints by 10p on average at most pubs due to a hike in energy bills.
