Stonegate Pubs Are Selling Pints For Just 95p To Get Rid Of Stock
As England lurches ever closer to the start of the second lockdown on Thursday morning (5 November), pubs and restaurants up and down the country are trying to come up with novel ways to get rid of stock at short notice.
Wetherspoon pubs have already announced their 99p pints sale, and now Stonegate has followed suit, only four pence cheaper.
Pubs will still be allowed to offer takeaway and delivery food services during the lockdown - which is set to finish on 2 December - but no alcohol will be allowed to be sold.
That means there's suddenly a massive amount of beer that will go off by that time that needs to be either thrown away or consumed.
With that in mind, Stonegate Pub Company, which owns brands such as Slug & Lettuce, Be At One and Walkabout, is flogging pints for less than a quid up and down England.
We have checked with Stonegate whether this offer is just in England, but it has not responded just yet, so we'll have to wait and see.
There is a good chance that you live pretty near to at least one pub that is offering this discount, as the company has got 700 pubs and bars in the UK, according to its official website.

Helen Charlesworth, Stonegate's Managing Director, said: "Once again, the hospitality industry is being told to bear the financial brunt of further regulations in the Government's response to Covid-19.
"Given the short notice, this 95p pint sale is to ensure minimal wastage of product across our estate.
"Cask ale only has a shelf life of a few days once its tapped and spiled, and in March the British Beer and Pub Association estimated that over 70 million pints of beer were poured down the drain."
Charlesworth continued: "We also would prefer our customers to enjoy the beer - responsibly, of course - rather than pouring it away."
So, if you're gagging for a Tuesday or Wednesday night pint before the isolation bites once again, you can head on down to your nearest pub after viewing this locator here.
Remember, you'll need to purchase a 'substantial meal' if you live in a Tier 3 area, as well as covering your face when not seated inside in all Tiers.
Oh, and please drink responsibly. It's going to be a marathon, not a sprint.
