I suspect the corporate overheads and shareholders dividends combined with pure greed have a lot to do with it. I have done some research and have found that the Rose and Crown (another Fullers pub) a little further down the South Ealing Road is charging 3.50 compared with the Red Lion (which has no music and the customers are really rather unpleasant) which seems to be a more normal Fullers price. The Rose and Crown also does free live jazz on Wednesday nights. If you proceed further down the road you hit Roddy's pub at the Popes Lane Junction which sells Stella at 3.10. Fullers have been hiking up their prices massively in the past year to ridiculous levels.
I think the reasons that pubs are closing is a) they are too expensive (it costs 20p a pint to make beer), b) they are poorly run, and c) the staff in general are terrible having succumbed to the general "everyone is a manager with the job title of assistant manager". Basically, there is little to attract the consumer, the "service" element that one used to pay for in restaurants is totally lacking and the pub companies are run by accountants.
