Wetherspoons pubs are loved across the UK and are a local for many. However, the budget chain is facing a number of closures with 19 of its pubs up for sale and 20 already closed this year.
In September 2022, Wetherspoons, or ‘Spoons as it’s nicknamed, announced it would be selling 32 of its pubs due to an inability to match its pre-pandemic performance. A further seven pub sites were added to the list in November 2022, making the total 39.
Wetherspoons has more than 800 pubs in the UK and is well known for its cheap drinks and cheap food. Like-for-like sales rose by 18 percent in the final quarter of 2022 across Wetherspoons’ pubs but were still two percent below 2019 levels.
