Wetherspoon Is Axing A Load Of Favourites From Its Food Menu
Wetherspoon is a Great British institution - it offers a great selection of cheap beer and food served in reclaimed cinemas around the country.
Back in January, however, they were forced to cancel Steak night because their steak supplier was found to be unhygienic. Some people were really, really mad. They're about to get a whole lot angrier. The 'Spoons menu is about to change again.
Favourites like their 8oz rump steak, New York deli burger, and tandoori chicken are all set to be scraped.
This is going to cause some people to lose it. Other items from the menu that are off are hotdogs (yes, all of them), ice cream sundaes (again, all of them), and their half roast chicken.
In fact, one in five out of every dish on the menu is to be axed.
The Sun reports it's largely down to the company's desire to 'streamline' the menu and reduce food stocks.
A 'Spoons insider told the paper: "It's bound to upset some regular diners who swear by the 'Spoons menu."
That's an understatement mate. Back when the steak went off the menu people kicked off in a very real way.
Back then, customer Michael Rousell told The Sun: "I can't believe a multi-million pound organisation like Wetherspoon can't sort this out - it beggars belief."
I mean, they did take the steak off the menu because of a health scare at the premises of Russell Hume, the company that supplies all of their meat, but whatever.
Back to the present day, and a spokesperson from Wetherspoons said: "Wetherspoons serves a wide range of meals and we are always keen to evolve."
On the one hand, it will drastically reduce waste and mean that the cost of food is also dramatically reduced.
However, on the other hand, we can only speculate as to whether they've factored in the loss of income that will result from Barry in Margate's refusal to come into the pub for his £1.29 lunchtime pint of Ruddles if he can't have a steak.
