The announcement comes after the City Pub Group warned that the price of a pint could rise by 30p to help pay for increased wages and energy costs.

The City Pub Group's executive chairman told BBC Radio 4:

“'We cannot absorb all these increased costs whether it is the energy costs whether it is food inflation, whether it is labour costs… so the only way forward for us is to put the price of beer and food up in our pubs.'

The move to reduce drinks prices has also been put in place to boost sales, following the chains worst ever loss in its quarterly financial results that were released earlier this month.

The company saw a loss of £154.7m in the year up to July 25.

Besides the financial losses of this year, JD Wetherspoon won pub brand of the year at the national pub and bar awards 2021.Wetherspoon’s 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.”

The drinks prices will be slashed from Monday, November 1 to Tuesday, November 30.
