Home and away fans are welcome at the Elephant and Castle.
Anyone with a match ticket or season ticket can get a burger and pint for £10 and kids get a soft drink and kids burger for £5.
This offer is on for all Brighton home matches.

Mr Forks, I don't think any pub can offer Weatherspoons prices in Lewes. I don't have their buying power (they can sell drink cheaper than I have to buy it) and also we don't sell frozen, 4oz burgers, ours are home made 8oz burgers made with local steak mince.

And Mr Forks, would you describe the beloved Weatherspoons food as nectar of the gods?
In some pubs in Lewes the price of a burger can set you back the best part of £12, throw in a pint at near enough £4 (or more in quite a few places) and you're looking at almost £16. So, looked at that way I'd say £10 looks like a fairly good deal. As for the kids deal, if you buy a J20 that'll set you back £2.10 here (more elsewhere) making the kids meal less than £3.
You end up saving over ten percent with this deal (on the whole) and I doubt there are many pubs in town that will give you a homemade meal and a pint for that amount, feel free top correct me if I'm wrong.

Who in their right mind would spend £12 on a burger?! And to be fair to Whethersoons food it's not gourmet but it's ok, especially for the price. Their is after all a recession on.

I agree with Huw. The Ellyburgers are substantial, freshly-made, served with many additions, and are something to look forward to before Sceptics In the Pub (e.g. tonight). They are not cheap food made from low-class ingredients, so are something of a treat, to be honest: but there's a broad market out there including prices both lower and higher (from the take-away shops to the Pelham House), so one can choose this type of burger or go elsewhere without feeling dishonest.

And further ER hypocrisy in the Pells this week, with a two-car household demanding that ESCC stop funding climate change.
