​There's Only One Rule For The Wetherspoon Dress Code

​There's Only One Rule For The Wetherspoon Dress Code

Dress codes for bars and nightclubs can be a right ball ache - with bouncers picking on what feels like the smallest element of your carefully-planned outfit and refusing you entry.

"Sorry, mate. No zips."

And it's not just the exclusive superclubs swanky bars that operate a dress code, either, as it turns out that even one of the UK's most popular low-cost pub chains has one.

That's right, we're talking about Spoons.

But before you start to panic about getting turned away from the world of cocktail pitchers,cut-price pints and curry clubs, just remember who we're dealing with here.

According to the Wetherspoon website: "Customers are requested to remain fully clothed throughout their visit, including wearing shoes."

So the dress code is basically just 'be dressed'.

The website adds: "In addition, some pubs do operate a specific dress code at all or certain times.

"For information on these requirements, please speak directly to the team of the pub you wish to visit."

So it's a strictly tops-on affair - meaning that even when the sun's out, you won't be able to get those guns out.


Earlier this year, the pub chain also announced that it has introduced an all-inclusive wedding package for the reasonable price of just £3,000.

At the moment, it's just the one location - The Knight's Templar Wetherspoon on Chancery Lane in London - that offers this service. Presumably they want to see how well it fares before introducing it across the board at the nearly 1,000 Wetherspoon pubs there are in the UK.

Up to 100 guests can then party the night away until 1am on a Saturday or midnight on a Sunday and have a three-course meal to help soak up the booze.

Speaking of booze, the package includes sparkling wine for the toast and Coldwater Creek wine to accompany the meal. And if you're desperately craving a pint of bitter, you can always pop to the bar and order one.

The package also includes table decorations - because you can't have a wedding without table decorations - and a post-meal capacity of up to 300 people.

You don't even have to sort entertainment out if you don't want to - the venue will provide a DJ to play all the cheesy hits you'd ever want to hear.

That's not all - a wedding host is also included in the cost and the chain will provide assistance with hotel bookings for anyone who needs one.

And the best news? All that's required of your guests is to 'remain fully clothed throughout their visit'.
