Taking inspiration from that fun Greek budget air travel guy and shops where everything feels sticky like Poundland and 99p Stores, one entrepreneur is now launching a stripped down pub chain, which he's called PoundPub, ludicrously.
“The idea is to offer a no-frills, value for money pub. We will be offering a half-pint of Fosters for £1 with a pint £1.50. But we will also have your non-alcoholic drinks like Becks Blue for £1 a bottle. We are aiming to have three cask ales on with prices upwards of £1.50 a pint,” Mike Wardell, a boss at Here for Your Hospitality who own the chain, told Yahoo News.
“What was clear to us was that there was a demand for this. And we’re ready to supply that.”
The first pub is opening on Dovecot Street in Stockton-on-Tees next month, with another venue planned in Greater Manchester and more in the pipeline if they prove a success.
