A pub in Kent has decided to continue an offer they had on for £1 roast dinners after an amazing response from customers.

The Britannia in Margate, Kent, launched the deal a month ago, and have seen sales of their roasts go from 120 normally to a massive 432.

They previously cost £7.50 each (which is still a pretty massive bargain), but landlord Paul Rollins decided to cut the price.

Paul said they sold 100 roasts on the first Sunday. They then did 140 in the second week and 192 in the third week.

Chuffed Paul – who runs The Britannia in Margate, Kent, said: It went really well. It has really put The Britannia and Margate on the map.
