It’s everyone’s least favourite month of the year, with all the festive fun winding down to make way for the start of a new year, and for many, a ‘dry January.’
However this time of year always sees some of the best deals across UK bars and restaurants as they try to combat the quiet period after Christmas by lowering food and drink prices a significant amount.
And that includes punters’ favourite JD Wetherspoon pubs, which started a huge sale today with pints on offer for less than £2. The sale ends on Thursday 16 January.
Along with pints of Magners for £1.89 and Shipyard beer for £2.35, prices on spirits and wine will also be cut, including the likes of a single Gordon’s gin and mixer for £2.45 and a 175ml glass of red, white or rose wine for £2.30.
Keep in mind that prices can sometimes vary from one Wetherspoon bar to another.
And if you are taking part in Dry January, selected soft drinks and coffees are included in the sale too.
These include R White’s raspberry lemonade, Dalston’s Fizzy Rhubarb, Gunna Muscovite Lemonade and Mint, San Pellegrino, Remedy Kombucha, Lavazza Iced Cappucino and some draught soft drinks.
Low and alcohol-free drinks are also in the deal, including Beck’s Blue, Heineken 0.0, Brewdog Nanny State and Adnams Ghost Ship.
Wetherspoon pub manager Bobby Platt said: “Department stores and shops hold their sales in January, so it is the perfect time to have a sale at the pub too.
“The range of drinks on sale in the pub is aimed at suiting a wide variety of tastes. This year we have included our biggest selection of low and non-alcoholic drinks.
“I believe that the January Sale will prove popular with our customers. As always, staff at the pub will serve customers responsibly.”
January doesn’t seem so blue after all!
