Full list of Wetherspoon pubs closing down as more are shut across UK

Full list of Wetherspoon pubs closing down as more are shut across UK

Brits are saying a tearful goodbye to more Wetherspoons branches across the country.

Brits are saying a tearful goodbye to four more Wetherspoon branches across the country.

The pub chain, beloved by those who enjoy a cheap pint, has closed the doors of several sites for good as part of a massive estate overhaul.

The firm announced it was selling over 30 pubs in September last year as the business buckled due to the higher food, energy and employment costs across the UK.

A string of cherished watering holes have now shut - and another 28 are still on the chopping block.

The most recent closure to rock Wetherspoons customers was The Miller's Well in East Ham, which has been part of the district's furniture since 1993.

The boozer, named after a nearby famous medicinal spring which is said to have healing qualities, shut down on 28 October.

It was listed for sale earlier this year, but it is now permanently closed according to Wetherspoons website.

The Butler's Bell in Stafford also poured it's last pint on 22 October.

It was put on the market earlier this year before being snapped up by Davenports Brewery, who are keen to reopen as soon as possible.

The new pub will reportedly have food, drink, live entertainment and Sky Sports TV on offer for punters, but an opening date has not been confirmed yet.

Katie McPhilimey, consultant marketing director at Davenports, said they are 'strategically acquiring venues to add to their ever-expanding portfolio'.

She added: "The Butler's Bell is a great new addition to the portfolio, and hopefully not our last in Stafford.

"Whilst we haven't got a firm opening date yet, as there is work to be done to install our products and that of our brand partners, we hope it will be within the next few weeks."

The pub chain have closed four sites over the last month.

The Capitol in Forest Hill, which was dubbed 'London's grandest Wetherspoons', also stopped serving punters on 15 October.

It was located inside a converted 1920s cinema, seeing guests sip on pints while surrounded by stunning art deco interiors.

It was put up for sale last year, but it is now the end of an era as it permanently shut its doors.

Wetherspoons also called time on The General Sir Redvers Buller in Devon on 9 October, leaving locals gutted.

The future of the site remains unclear, but it was classed as under offer earlier this year.

In a July update, Wetherspoons said it was a ‘misinterpretation’ to suggest the move to sell 32 of its pubs was down to difficult trading conditions.

“In fact, the disposals have raised relatively modest amounts (although every little helps) and almost all are related to circumstances … where there is another Wetherspoon pub nearby,” they said.

Another 28 branches are set to shut and remain listed as 'available' on CBRE Group and Savills - meaning they are still up for sale or under offer.

These are the sites that are still 'available':

  • The Pontlottyn, Abertillery
  • Christopher Creeke - Bournemouth

  • The Mockbeggar Hall, Moreton
  • The Rising Sun, Redditch
  • Sennockian, Sevenoaks
  • The Sir Norman Rae, Shipley
  • The Hain Line, St Ives
  • The Sir Daniel Arms, Swindon
  • The White Hart, Todmorden

These are the sites listed as 'under offer':

  • Asparagus - Battersea
  • Wrong ‘Un - Bexleyheath
  • Thomas Leaper - Derby
  • Millers Well - East Ham
  • The Percy Shaw - Halifax
  • Jolly Sailor - Hanham
