Wetherspoons to close more pubs in the UK

Wetherspoons boss warns of more pub closures - will your local be next?

Wetherspoons, the UK’s largest pub chain, is set to close more pubs in the UK as some locations are currently under offer.

Two branches have already closed within the last week, with The Sir John Arderne in Newark and The Bankers Draft in Eltham shutting down on Sunday, August 20, 2023.

Another pub, The Moon and Bell in Loughborough, is confirmed to close by the end of this year.

The Nightjar in Ferndown, Dorset, is not expected to renew its lease when it is up in September, so could close within weeks.

In total, nearly 30 Wetherspoons pubs have closed across the country since last year.

However, there are still more than 800 Wetherspoons pubs in the UK, so fans of the chain won’t need to go far to find another location.

The sales of some Wetherspoons pubs were first announced last year, and many of the at-risk pubs are located in London.

The reasons for the closures are varied, but they include factors such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, rising costs, and changes in consumer behavior.

Wetherspoons has said that it is committed to its remaining pubs and that it will continue to invest in the business.
