Wetherspoons has launched its own reduced prices scheme after the end of the Government's Eat Out to Help Out.

The move will see prices on a range of meals and drinks reduced from Monday to Wednesday until November 11.

The cheaper prices will start on Tuesday, following the end of the Government's drive to encourage people to eat out by subsidising meals during August.

Wetherspoons said prices on some of its meals and drinks will be cheaper than those available in takeaways.

Chairman Tim Martin said: "The Government's Eat Out to Help Out scheme was extremely popular with our customers and a great boost to the hospitality industry.

"We are keen to offer our customers a superb choice of food and drink at great value for money prices.

"Our offer means that a classic beef burger in our pubs will be even better value than McDonald's."

Last week, a Wetherspoons pub was caught up in a coronavirus outbreak.

The Arnold Machin Wetherspoons pub has been linked to a Covid-19 outbreak following a bingo night at the venue on Ironmarket, Newcastle.

Authorities have said 16 confirmed cases have stemmed from a bingo night at Silverdale Working Men's Club (WMC) on Sunday, August 16.

Track and trace has warned 12 venues in the area, and Clayton, with the Wetherspoon pub caught up in the process, StokeOnTrent Live reports.

Anyone who was in the boozer on Wednesday, August 26, and Thursday, August 27, is now being urged to get a coronavirus test over the bank holiday weekend.

Punters who have visited The Westbury Tavern, on Westbury Road, Clayton, on August 26 and August 27 have also been urged to get tested.

It comes as more than 1000 people have been tested for Covid-19 since Friday amid the rising R rate across the UK.
