How your local pub could help slash your energy bills | The Sun

WORK from home Brits attempting to escape their rocketing energy bills will have a new option as pub chains are offering 'work from the pub' deals.

Brits using the deals said the offer is ideal for bonding with other workers "over a beer at the end of the day".

With the cost of living crisis stretching into the winter, pubs are attempting to attract workers away from the water cooler and towards the bar.

Hospitality businesses are introducing the deals to combat skyrocketing energy bills and rising food and drink prices, as well as hard-up Brits tightening their purse strings.

September's energy support package offered to businesses by the government came after months of pleading by establishments for help to survive.

The support will be equivalent to the energy price guarantee that Liz Truss announced earlier the same month, which will see household bills capped at £2,500 for two years.

But with soaring bills threatening pubs across the country, there are fears this won't be enough.

Many chains are instead offering Work from Pub (WFP) deals in an appeal to customers trying to alleviate their own cost-of-living squeeze.

Pub franchise Young's introduced a £15 a day WFP package in 2020, which covers over 180 of the chain's establishments.

The deal can include a sandwich lunch as well as bottomless tea and coffee.

Fullers is offering a similar deal, providing lunch and a drink from just £10 across its 380 pubs.

Microbrewery pub chain Brewhouse and Kitchen is also providing a 'workspace' option, giving customers WiFi, printing, quiet spots, power sockets and unlimited hot and cold drinks.

Some chains are even rolling out memberships, with co-working site Othership teaming up with pubs to host laptop workers for as little as £25 a month.

Luke McMillan, the owner of flip-flop company Sea Sense, runs his businessess from Flintgate pub in Weybridge, Surrey.

The pub is providing an appealing £15 'work and play deal' which offers workers power points, quiet stations, bottomless hot drinks and lunch – as well as a pint or G&T at the end of the day.

Luke told the Guardian: "I find working from the kitchen table soul-destroying.

"The pub is great for its laidback atmosphere, and the best bit is that you get to bond with other pub workers over a beer at the end of the day."
