JD Wetherspoon Puts 11 More Pubs Up For Sale

Pub group JD Wetherspoon have put another 11 pubs up for sale following a number of recent closures in the last few years.

Last year Wetherspoons announced 32 of its pubs would go up for sale as the country and the on-trade sector grappled rising costs brought on by high inflation.

The pubs will remain open pending their sale.

A spokesman for the chain said: “Wetherspoon is continuing to invest in its business and has recently reopened The Square Peg in Birmingham and The Lord Palmerston in Southsea, after major refurbishment, costing approximately £1.5million.

The company is also currently redeveloping and extending pubs in Wakefield, central Cardiff and central Glasgow at a total cost of approximately £8million.

“The company is also proceeding with plans for a number of new pubs and hotels as well as major upgrades to existing pubs involving a total investment of around £100million.”
