Wetherspoons Stay Out To Help Out Scheme - Reduced Menu Cost Mon-Wed until Nov 11
Posted 31st Aug 2020

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

So it’s not quite the same as the EOTHO scheme however it is still only Mon-Wed

The scheme will see prices on a range of meals and drinks reduced from Monday to Wednesday until Wednesday November 11 at Wetherspoon pubs in the UK.

Wetherspoon says its prices on some of the meals and drinks will be cheaper than those available in McDonalds or Domino’s Pizza.

The meals on offer include an 11 inch Margherita pizza with soft drink for £3.99 and a classic six ounce beef burger (with chips) and soft drink for £3.99.

A traditional breakfast (fried egg, two rashers of bacon, two hash browns, baked beans, sausage, tomato and toast) will cost £2.99 and a small breakfast £2.49.

The pubs will also be offering three small plates for £7.50 as well as desserts at £1.99 and mini desserts at 99p.

There is a choice of 21 small plates in the three for £7.50 deal, including nachos, halloumi fries, chicken wings and nine varieties of pizza (eight inch).

Coffee or tea (with free refills) will be available for 99p, and all soft drinks, including Pepsi, diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max, Pepsi Max Cherry, San Pellegrino, R Whites Lemonade plus 20 other canned and bottled soft drinks will cost 99p.

Wetherspoon founder and 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 McDonalds.

“ The classic burger in Wetherspoon is £3.99 versus McDonalds Big Mac medium meal (comprising Big Mac two 1.6 ounce beef patties, medium fries, medium Coca-Cola Zero Sugar) which costs £4.59.

“In addition cappuccino in our pubs will be 50p cheaper than McDonalds and our customers can have free refills too.

“Our prices are also lower than Domino’s Pizza for an 11 inch pizza.

“ The 11 inch Margherita pizza and soft drink is £3.99 at Wetherspoon versus Domino’s Pizza two topping 11.5 inch pizza deal (no drink) at £5.99.

“A Domino’s Pizza Mighty Meaty 11.5 inch pizza meal deal costs £9.99 (no drink) compared to the Wetherspoon Spicy Meat Feast at £5.99 (including soft drink), a saving of £4.”

Tough crowd here


I think while the deal may be ok, a lot of people (me and my friends included) have decided to spend our eating out money elsewhere, used to love spoons but after seeing where/who my money was going to by eating there we decided against it to spend at other places more worthy instead.
Help Out?
Swell the coffers of Tim Martin and his microwaved food?
It’s not value for money.
No thanks.

Have yiu ever been in wetherspoons? Pop in and look at the food some time. …Have yiu ever been in wetherspoons? Pop in and look at the food some time. You might be surprised. Microwaves are part of the modern world, you will be hard pressed to find a pub that doesn't use them for some of their menu.


Sadly, I have.

I’ve known several people who have lost jobs and had to work there to keep their lives afloat. I am very aware of their obligations such as zero hour contracts and being ‘on call’ at any given moment, leveraging their vulnerability and desperation to earn a crust.

I also know people who worked in many of their kitchens. I wasn’t surprised to hear the majority of food is cooked via a microwave.

I am aware that many establishments use them, but without boring you with the details, Wetherspoons’ reliance goes somewhat much further.
I'll happily stay out of Wetherspoons.

Voted cold.
Food is awful anyway
Thanks but no thanks
Not even free
Their pizzas are surprisingly really nice. Cheaper than a supermarket with a drink. Heat
Curry thursday is excellent. They have made the vindaloo even hotter.

And where the money goes? I’m not familiar with this pub chain and quick google shown that they refuse to pay breweries, work staff etc
Hopefully it’ll force more restaurants to consider what they’re charging customers, chain restaurants in particular!

Yep,here's proof.

The dough is soft and fresh,unlike the frozen bases at Pizza Hut.

Only complaint was they were a bit stingy with the pepperonis.

Nice! I've had a few very nice meat feasts there myself.
Shame about the pepperoni, but when you consider the price paid, its not bad.
And in my eyes, the worst thing you can do is skimp on the cheese - which they usually don't.
The reason I'm quite passionate about their pizzas is because when I heard they'd started doing pizza i immediately thought "oh yeah, they'll be frozen/rubbish". But they're really not

I know for a fact that Wetherspoons use the same food suppliers as many other pub chains - they simply choose to operate a low price-high sales business model. Of course they use microwaves, as do most pubs and restaurants these days. The pizzas are great tasting and most of their food is good value, even at normal prices; the drinks prices are outstanding. Lavazza lattes for £1.35 at our local one, with free refills is unbeatable.
After seeing how the owner reacted to Covid, no thanks. Ever.

Yours is a lot more generously filled than mine.
Not a bad deal, if that's your thing.

For the people mentioning spending their cash at other establishments, I'd suggest downloading the Neverspoons app.
Heat added. The pizza are disgusting but great value

Making drinking and eating in pubs affordable at the expense of real pubs who treat their workers properly.
Superb stuff..couldn't care who my money went to as long as foods in my gut.

You have seen the comments on here and elsewhere from the staff haven’t you, rather than a few seconds seconds of the clip that got into the media. Nothing wrong with offering their staff to hold their jobs if they wanted to work and wanted to go elsewhere instead of getting furloughed if others had done it your taxes wouldn’t be going up soon

A few media and even worse social media sound bites over reality didn’t make him a bad person.

Indeed - you can avoid going and not spend.
I love the " i hate Wethersppons so i'm going to tell you" brigade

Do you guys comment on every other deal on here that you dislike and have no interest in?

Thanks for the heads up OP - Still amazed by a £1.29 Ruddles/IPA - find it hard to buy any other Real Ales for £1.99

Love spoons - was out yesterday and didnt go to any Spoons but paying £5.35 for a lager was a bit painful

All the staff in my local spoons still have their jobs - about 10-15 of them - great staff as well
It isn't for me. I don't like Wetherspoons. I am loathe to put money in Tim Martin's pockets. That said, I'd be hard-pressed to not acknowledge this is a good deal and that it does provide an opportunity for those that may be struggling, to have a cheap night out and a chance they otherwise may not have had to enjoy themselves.
I have always judged a pub by the quality of its ales and ambiance and I have generally found Spoons to fit the bill, particularly when coupled with very good prices.

As far as food goes when I was last in the UK I rated their cod and chips to be excellent.

I had fish and chips in there last week and the fish and batter beat any local chippy that i use.

They furloughed their staff, just like thousands of other companies did.
My local Wetherspoons serves cold chips and onion rings with everything. Seems the chef just makes a massive pile and leaves them sitting there. Happened too many times now I'd sooner go elsewhere for that reason alone.
