Rising prices will hit the traditional British Friday evening dinner

Chips and beer are set to price increases as the long hot summer combines with rising operating costs to hit the traditional British dinner on Friday night.

The price of fruit and vegetables, especially potatoes, is likely to rise this fall, Coöperatie said, due to limited stocks caused by the hot dry summer in Europe.

Tim Martin, the chairman of the Wetherspoons pub chain, said his costs would rise due to the imposition of the sugar tax, an increased national minimum wage and rent increases.

Steve Murrells, the chief executive of the Co-operative Group, who owns thousands of convenience stores, as well as funeral homes and an insurance company, said: "That great summer we had put a lot of pressure on the availability of crops."
