Wetherspoons to cut beer price for next month with 99p pints
The pub chain will be offering a number of drink bargains throughout November
As we all start to converge in pubs as winter draws in and the nights get shorter, Wetherspoons is offering a range of drinks for the bargain price of 99p.
At 671 of the chain's pubs across the UK, customers will be able to purchase a pint of Ruddles Best (or Greene King IPA), a bottle of Beck’s or Bell’s whiskey with a mixer for just 99p each.
Meanwhile, pints of real ale will be priced at £1.10 in Scotland and Wales due to minimum unit price restrictions.
Don't worry if none of these take your fancy. In 770 of the pubs you can get a 175mL glass of Coldwater Creek wine for £1.69, a 25mL measure of Gordon’s gin with a mixer for £1.99 and a bottle of Hardy’s wine - including rose, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Shiraz - for £6.99.
And if you're off the booze, then fear not, as all hot drinks will be on offer for 99p as well - with refills.
Wetherspoons' chairman Tim Martin said: "Our pubs are known for their excellent choice of drinks at value-for-money-prices at all times.
"Throughout November our customers will be able to choose from a great choice of drinks and save themselves some money too."
On Wednesday, Clive Watson, executive chairman of City Pub Group, said the price of a pint could rise by as much as 30p.
Speaking to the BBC, he said: "We cannot absorb all these increased costs, whether it is the energy costs, whether it is food inflation, whether it is labour costs.
"The only way forward for us is to put the price of food and beer up in our pubs."
