Bus riders’ pub offer

DRINKERS at an Ilkeston pub can get cash off food when they show their bus discount card.

Trent Barton bus riders with Mango cards just need to flash their card at the Observatory in Market Place to get 20 per cent off their meals.

Area manager at the Wetherspoons pub Gavin Gill said: “As well as bringing even more people into our pubs, it has encouraged more of them to travel there by bus.”

The Observatory is one of 35 Wetherspoon’s pubs across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to offer the discount to the 18,000 Mango cardholders.
