PUB chain Chef and Brewer is giving away £2,500 worth of gift vouchers.

And all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is pledge to spend as much time with family this Christmas as possible – whether that's in person or virtually.

The British country pubs surveyed their customers and found that 74 per cent of those who participated in the research have put spending quality time with family at the top of this year’s Christmas list, far above material items such as clothes (25 per cent), games (20 per cent) and perfume (18 per cent).

The pub’s research also revealed that after a turbulent year, this festive period 30 per cent of people want to be able to make new memories with loved ones, while a further 31 per cent are longing for a trip to the pub or a meal out.

Unsurprisingly, an overwhelming 88 percent said that spending time with family will be more important to them this year than in previous years, and a further 67 per cent will be making more of an effort than usual to ensure that this Christmas is extra-special.

In response, Chef and Brewer has put aside 50 gift cards worth £50 each for those who make a 'festive promise' on their website.

To be in with a chance of winning you need to make your promise online by December 6.

Warrington's Chef and Brewer pubs are taking part including the Swan in Winwick, the Griffin in Bold Heath and Ring O Bells in nearby Daresbury.

Siobhain Hannon, general manager at the Griffin said: “We know planning the perfect celebration has never been more important, not least because we haven’t been able to spend as much time with our family and friends as we’d like to this year.

“While Christmas 2020 is likely to be a bit different to other years, it’s a time to remember what’s really important to us. That’s why we’re encouraging people in Warrington to reconnect with loved ones and to look out for one another this Christmas, while enjoying a relaxing, cosy meal or a few quiet drinks in the pub, free of charge when the time is right.

"It’s just one of our promises to you to help you lose yourself in the moment this Christmas.

“We look forward to welcoming friends and families alike back into the pub to enjoy each other’s company and make new memories together – after this year, they more than deserve it."

Chef and Brewer will also be adding an extra £10 value to any £40 gift voucher bought between November 23 and 30 as part of its Black Friday deal.
