Drinks will include Estrella Galicia from Spain, Peroni from Italy, Jameson Irish Whiskey from the Republic of Ireland, Beck's from Germany and Grey Goose Vodka from France.

A bottle of Beck's or a pint of Ruddles will be just £1.49.

The promotion will run until February 29 across all of the company's 870 pubs in the UK.

Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin said: "Many of our customers are keen to celebrate Brexit.

"At the same time we want to remain friends with our European neighbours and offer a range of drinks at an excellent price.

"In my opinion, there has been far too much political posturing in negotiations between the UK and the EU up until now."

He believes that the public and businesses will be the ultimate decision-makers on how much of a success Brexit is through their purchasing choices.

He added: "Let’s stay friends and enjoy free trade, but take account of the economic reality.

"Consumers hold the whip hand in these negotiations, not governments."
