Ever wanted to make the pub your office? Well now you can and it’s cheaper than you think

It's actually cheaper to work from a pub than in a co-working space, a new report has claimed.
It's actually cheaper to work from a pub than in a co-working space, a new report has claimed.

A new report claims that it may actually be cheaper to work from a pub than in a co-working space such as Wework.

Shocking research from Alliance Online analysed the co-working deals offered by six major UK pub chains before comparing prices with five nationwide co-working spaces.

They identified that the average daily cost to work from a pub is just £13 – 40 per cent cheaper than the average cost of a desk in a coworking space, at £22.

The growing trend of remote working has led a number of popular pubs across London to start offering up tables for workers to rent for the day.

All Bar One offers unlimited tea and coffee alongside a desk for just £13.

Other popular boozers such as Brewdog, Young’s and Brewhouse and Kitchen also offer similar deals.

The company argues logging on from your local boozer is a smart option financially, compared to pricey co-working hubs.

Many of the capital’s trendy hybrid working buildings charge a monthly fee of upwards of £200 per month.

Embattled Wework charges £25 per day to enjoy their spaces.

However, the research also revealed that working from a pub is only cheaper if you’re doing it as a one-off.

If you were to ‘work from pub’ everyday over a month, it would cost £390 – 54 per cent more expensive than the average monthly coworking membership, at £253.

Rachael Kiss from Alliance Online said: ““Make sure to get to your chosen pub as soon as possible – aim to arrive during off-peak hours as this is when it will be less crowded.

Kiss added: “Getting there during off-peak hours will not only prevent it from being too crowded, but it will ensure that you get the most out of your money to use the unlimited wifi and refreshments. Pubs usually open mid-morning, making it the prime time to begin your working day.”
