It is not an effort to earn supernormal profits but rather to recuperate some of their losses. Pub owners in the area have said that prices for a pint of lager have increased by 10 pence or 20 pence. Pints of more premium beer have gone up to as high as 6.50 pounds with an average of about 4.42 pounds.
These are a result of brewery price hikes as well as a price hike from the supply side (referring to raw materials and labour costs). Bars in the area cannot operate at maximum, or even breakeven capacity and are relegated to 60% of their total table covers and therefore to achieve break even or profit have to raise prices of drinks sold. While there are probably a lot of stag dos even within the 60% occupancy, recouping costs is not surprising at all.
