Wetherspoon To Open Extra Pubs With Extended Opening Hours From Monday

Wetherspoon will open more of its pubs across the country next week and will close an hour later as the easing of the lockdown continues - now that's what we call a happy hour!

The company is expanding its phased rollout, after opening 394 of its pubs in England on Monday, April 12.

The new openings include those in Guildford, Ilkeston, Lincoln, Morecambe, Camborne, Driffield, Nottingham and Reading, as well as London.

It will result in 533 of the company's 871 pubs being open.


From Monday, April 26, all pubs, including those that opened on April 12, will also be extending their opening hours for an extra hour each day.

The pubs in England will be open from 9am to 10pm Sunday to Thursday, and 9am to 11pm Friday and Saturday, although some have restrictions on closing times and in those cases will close earlier.

They will offer a slightly reduced menu, including breakfast, burgers, pizza, deli deals, fish and chips and British classics.


Food in pubs in England will be available from 9am to 9pm seven days a week.

Customers will be able to order and pay through the Wetherspoon app, however, staff will be able to take orders and payment at the table from those who don't have a smartphone.

The chain's pubs will not be operating a booking system, a statement confirmed.

Customers will be able to enter the pub to gain access to the outside area and also to use the toilet.


Test and trace will be in operation and hand sanitisers will be available.

Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson said: "We are looking forward to opening the extra pubs in England as well as those in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

"We look forward to welcoming our customers and staff back to our pubs."

Under the PM's plans, all legal limits on social contact could be lifted by June 21 if strict conditions are met.


From May 17, two households might be allowed to mix in homes, while the rule of six could apply in places like pubs.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson told MPs the plan aimed to be "cautious but irreversible" and at every stage, decisions would be led by "data not dates".
