Good luck with everything.
When I left 18 months ago it was £4.60 for a pint of either Guinness or Stella in my local. In Manchester it was over the £5 mark and I understand from friends it has gone up since so that was the basis of my assumption. The above link may be prices of local beers like Sam Smiths etc. Or weatherspoon prices that bring the average prices down? Or it might be the type of pubs where you stick to the carpet which I'd rather stay away from!
I will know for sure in just over a weeks time and will confirm - if you're right ill be a happy man.

I find Transferwise is easy, and competitive, for small-medium sums. The app is easy really to use too - I transferred £1000 in the pub t'other night as I saw the exchange rate was up slightly and it takes 5 mins tops. Yes you pay a fee but it's only £5 per £1,000 and you get almost exactly the mid market rate. You can also set a limit if the rate drops before the exchange goes thru & if you sign up thru Topcashback you get £10 cashback!
Its from the same guys who set up Skype & is quite interesting how it works - effectively matches up a person sending £1000 from UK to Aus with a person sending say $2,000 the other way so it cuts out the middle bank which is where the high fees are. Richard Branson has invested in them so if it's good enough for him it's good enough for me!
You also get £50 for every 3 people you refer so if anyone wants to sign up please let me know & i will send them a referral link! :-)
No way would we pay over £3 for a pint,infact where I am (Sth West UK)my OH pays usually £2.50-£2.75 and we tend to visit a lot of different pubs rather than use the "local".
Be Happy!Its one way of being wise!
The pubs on the outskirts are still lovely, and I usually pay around £4.60, but that's for cider (nice fancy fruity bottles, not strongbow lol) so not sure what a pint would be? Stella or guiness must be close to that though so not much different from when you left!
Whereabouts are you from?
