IF you're finances are drained after the Christmas and New Year festivities, don't worry - you can pop down the pub for a free drink.

A number of pubs in the Taunton area are giving away free drinks between January 2 and 19.

You can choose from beer, cider or a gin and tonic - or if you're doing dry January, low and no alcoho drinks are included.

All you have to do is download a voucher by clicking here and show it at one of the following pubs:

The King's Arms, Victoria Gate, The Flying Horse, The Waggon, all in Taunton; The Old Inn, Bishop's Hull; The White Hart, Corfe; The Maypole, Thurloxton; The Lethbridge Arms, Bishops Lydeard; and York Inn, Churchinford.


The offer is available at around 1,000 pubs across the UK, thanks to Ei Publican Partnerships, the UK’s largest leased and tenanted pub business.




Managing Director at Ei Publican Partnerships, Nick Light, said: “January is often seen as one of the least enjoyable months of the year, but we want to change that.

"We’re giving away up to 100,000 free drinks to say Happy New Year to our customers and encouraging people to visit their local pub to socialise with other members of the community.”
