Where can you find Britain’s cheapest average high street burger meal? If you answered McDonalds, you’re absolutely wrong.

Bargain-basement burgers

In fact since 2008 the price of McDonald’s Big Mac, the fast food chain’s most popular burger, has jumped by more than 30%, according to research from stockbroker Shore Capital.

Having remained at £2 for almost a decade, the price of a Big Mac has now hit £2.79, with the total cost of a medium meal reaching £4.49

That pegs McDonalds as more expensive than Wetherspoons (£4.39) and in line with Flaming Grill pubs average offering (£4.49).

And the cheapest burger meal... that award goes to Greene King’s Hungry Horse chain of pubs which offer a bargain-basement £4.29 burger meal.
