Gary Watson explained:

"I recently bought a half pint of lemonade from
a fullers pub, apart from the fact that the glass
was full of ice, it cost 2.20
That's dearer than beer, with no duty, on a
product that costs 40p a pint,"

and then explained further:

"as per usual in pubs that rip off customers,
apart from my family and I, it was empty!"

And there's your answer I'm afraid. Years ago the
pubs used to be full every night - people went for
the company and even more years ago for the warmth
in winter. Something that nowadays only happens
in TV soaps. So that in the old days the pubs profits
came from the regulars.
Similarly to buy beer or spirits otherwise
you'd need to go to an off-licence paying set prices.
No buying it in shops.
Nowadays everyone has central heating, TV, and
can buy all the beer wine and spirtis they want
from the supermarkets or the shops at competive
prices.
However the costs of running pubs, in terms of
heating lighting, cleaning, rent, rates
and wages hasn't gone down at all.
Basically the fewer customers there are - as
a result of the above, the higher the prices
pubs will have to charge in order to cover those
costs.
Basically you're not just paying for a glass of
lemonade, you're also paying your share of half
an hours worth of lighting, central heating, rates,
bar staff wages.
It's simply a vicious circle - fewer customers mean
higher prices - higher prices mean even fewer customers.
The potential value of many pub sites if put to
alternative uses won't exactly be a help either.
