A Wetherspoons imitation has captured the hearts of Brits abroad wanting a taste of home while holidaying in a tourist hotspot.
The pub chain classic delights punters up and down the country with its cheap pints and atmosphere, and a likeness has been spotted abroad. Whether Weatherspains is up for serving room temperature shots of Striker is yet to be seen.
But what can be seen is the delight on the faces of punters from the UK heading into the establishment. Ditching the dark days of British weather and heading to the Costa Del Sol, Brits are flocking to the pub reminding them of home.

The tourist hotspot is now stocked full of Brit tourists hoping for a taste of home while out on their holiday. Serving up classic British pub meals like gammon, deep filled pies and peas, sausage and mash, punters are elated with the results.
Now a hotspot on the Costa Del Sol for those wanting the sweet smell of their local Wetherspoons while abroad, the establishment serves up quite the variety of alcohol too. It is just like its British namesake, bar the weather, clientele and location.
Boozy Brits can still enjoy a fair range of tipples including beer, cocktails and all the usual bits and pieces served up by the British pub chain. But unlike the pubs of the UK, Weatherspains can offer up some warm weather, The Sun reported.
Even a chip count at the venue from a Facebook group who keep track of how many chips are on offer in a Wetherspoons bowl was impressive. A total of 47 chips in Weatherspains in Benalmadena was tallied by one group member.
Whether the number of chips and warmer climate is enough to win some Brits over completely is yet to be seen, but the fake Wetherspoons is winning over Brits consistently. The faux Wetherspoons currently boasts a 4.8 rating on Facebook.
Entertainment is also offered at the fake Wetherspoons, with the likes of karaoke and bingo always running for those hoping to lap up the sun with a laugh and a pint. Cheap food is also a staple of the eatery.
Pub classics like scampi and chips will set revellers back €8.50 (£7.39) while half a roast chicken with a side of chips, mash, peas or salad is just €9 (£7.83).
