Chief executive John Hutson said: “Our coffee is extremely popular with customers.

“We sell around a million cups a week in our pubs across the UK, and believe customers will welcome the opportunity to enjoy a takeaway cup too, at 99p.”

The move will see the pub giant go head-to-head in a high street battle taking on the likes of Starbucks and Costa.
