A PUB in Daresbury is offering thousands of pounds worth of free meals and drinks to residents this Christmas season.

Ring O' Bells on Chester Road, which is part of Chef and Brewer, has announced the initiative after discovering that 74 per cent of British people have put spending quality time with family at the top of this year’s Christmas list.

Following the findings, Ring O' Bells is encouraging its locals to reconnect with loved ones and inspire them to do acts of kindness in the community, by giving away free meals and drinks to be enjoyed when restrictions ease.

All people have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of 50 £50 gift cards, is promise to make the most of this Christmas by creating special moments and long-lasting memories with loved ones

A spokesperson for Ring O' Bells 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 Daresbury to reconnect with loved ones and to look out for one another this Christmas, whilst 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!"
