£1 roast at The Britannia in Margate is back on the menu

A Kent pub's famous £1 roast dinner is making a comeback on the menu.

The Britannia in Margate will offer the cheap dinner once again to customers next month.

Landlord Paul Rollins announced today the pub is now taking bookings with the offer returning on June 16.

But punters hoping to grab what is possibly the cheapest roast in the country will have to get in quick to take advantage.

Mr Rollins says the offer will be back for one day only.

When he first launched the offer back in March, it took the country by storm with national newspapers taking interest.

Diners will get the offer of beef or turkey, sourced from butchers in Broadstairs, and have to spend £3 behind the bar to get their roast for a quid.

But with a pint costing around £4 anyway, customers will be able to get their Sunday roast for under a fiver.

Pub staff were overwhelmed by the response and in the three weeks after launching the offer saw bookings soar with 350 dinners served.
