Wetherspoons is bringing back fan favourite drinks this week – and customers will love it | The Sun

WETHERSPOONS is bringing back two fan favourite drinks this week and customers will love it.

The pub giant is reviving Strongbow and Strongbow Dark Fruits across all of its pubs.

The fan favourites were axed from menus back in 2021 and replaced by Stowford Press Apple and Stowford Press Mixed Berries.

But as of yesterday punters will be able to get their hands on the Strongbow classics again.

The roll out to each pub will vary from site to site but Spoons hopes to have all pubs stocking the drinks again by the end of the month.

Prices do tend to vary from pub to pub so it's always best to check your local before paying.

Back in November 2021, the company signed a new 20-year deal with Budweiser Brewing Group to become its largest supplier.

In doing so it brought Wetherspoon's partnership with Heineken to an end after 41 years – Strongbow is owned by Heineken.

John Smiths bitter was also replaced by Worthington's bitter, supplied by brewer Molson Coors. 

Wetherspoons confirmed to The Sun that no other Heineken owned brands which were also axed are set to come back currently.

It comes just a day after the pub chain increased the cost of pints to £7 at certain locations.

Cash-strapped Brits will pay a jaw-dropping £7.10 a pint for a trendy Leffe beer at Gatwick, Stansted, Heathrow and Edinburgh airports.

The Belgian brew has been hiked by 25p – or 3.5 per cent – from £6.85 taking it above the £7 mark as the cost-of-living crisis continues to bite.

The increase comes just six months after The Sun revealed prices were being jacked up by 7.5 per cent – or up to 29p a pint.

Other drinks at the so-called budget pub chain – including Stella Artois, San Miguel and Corona – are now creeping towards the £7 landmark at £6.45-a-pint.

The chain is regularly updating and introducing offers to its food and drinks menu, as well as making other changes to its pubs.

In July it introduced the crunchy chicken strip burger to its main meal offering.

Back in January, it extended the time you can order breakfast to 12pm – seven days a week.

Previously, you could get brekkie from 8am to 11.30am Monday through to Sunday so punters now have 30 extra minutes to order grub.

In October, last year the chain brought in eight new menu items including Katsu Curry and several pub classics.

And this change to the Wetherspoons drinks menu left punters divided.
