Full list of Wetherspoons pubs closing for good from this month – is your local affected? | The Sun

WETHERSPOONS has confirmed when some of its boozers will be closing for good.

It comes as the pub chain announced that 19 of its pubs have been sold and a further 35 have been put up for sale.

Now Wetherspoons has confirmed the closing date for three of its sites – with one set to shut for good as early as this weekend.

Pubs have been knocked by rising costs as inflation sends prices soaring and less demand among cash-strapped punters.

The pub chain saw like-for-like sales drop 1.1% in the five weeks to November 6, 2022 when compared with pre-pandemic trading in 2019.

But sellers are struggling to find buyers for some of the locations, according to the FT.

Pub giant Stonegate, which is behind brands such as Slug and Lettuce and Be At One, is also looking to sell off pubs to pay down its debt pile, according to Bloomberg.

Revolution revealed it will be shutting some of its bars on Mondays and Tuesdays to help cut energy costs.

Around 4,500 pubs in the UK are considering reducing trading hours over winter, according to the British Beer and Pub Association.

Wetherspoon pubs in major towns and cities such as Southampton and Middlesbrough are also up for sale.
