With the UK’s departure from the European Union fast approaching, Wetherspoons is slashing the price of its drinks to mark the historic occasion.

The pub chain is cutting the price of 10 drinks, including a number of beers and vodkas, from Brexit day, on Friday 31 January.

Dubbed the ‘Let’s stay friends’ offer, the chain will reduce the price of select drinks which originate in a range of European countries by approximately 60p. These include drinks from Germany, France, Spain, Poland, Holland and Ireland, as well as from across the UK.

The discounted prices will be available in all of JD Wetherspoons’ 870 pubs across the country, for a limited period only.

Among the cut price drinks will be Estrella Galicia (from Spain), Beck’s (Germany), Peroni (Italy), Tyskie (Poland), Jameson Irish Whiskey (Republic of Ireland) and Grey Goose Vodka (France).

Customers will be able to buy a bottle of Beck’s for £1.49, a bottle of Peroni at £1.99, Grey Goose Vodka (single measure and mixer) for £2.99, and a pint of Ruddles (England) for £1.49 at 700 Wetherspoon pubs.

However, prices will vary based on location, with pubs in London and the south east typically having higher prices.

Wetherspoon chairman, Tim Martin, said, “Many of our customers are keen to celebrate Brexit.

“At the same time we want to remain friends with our European neighbours and offer a range of drinks at an excellent price.

“In my opinion, there has been far too much political posturing in negotiations between the UK and the EU up until now.”
