if there was one thing i could change about wetherspoons it would be to allow, darts and pool in them, make a pub so much better a pool table in my view Cool

The ironic thing is the guy who started the chain opened the 1st branch specifically without any of these things. They only started installing tv because a huge dip in takings around the World Cup in 2006.

Manchester and County in (surprisingly) Manchester City Centre is one to either avoid or have a quick pint in and go, been in there few times now, not a patch on the other 4 city centre Spoons. Went in last night, beer selection was crap and the guy behind the bar found it quite odd I'd want 2 halves of different beers than a full pint.

I think this is one that used to be just plain Wetherspoons. I did eat in there on my visit but I think I was just lucky that day!

The one in Whitstable will be interesting. This is one of the away trips the Hamlet drinkers look forward to most. Lost of welcoming traditional boozers, with the particular favourite being the Ship Centurion, on the High Street.

I wonder if opening a Wetherspoons here will slowly but surely see a shift in peoples' drinking habits, & be the catalyst for some of the other pubs to close, as drinkers move to Wetherspoons with their pockets.

You'll be doing well just to be in the Conference on Boxing Day!

Hope you are, but it's looking very bleak...

The difference is Wetherspoons actually serve a purpose, do a good job in providing what the customer wants and in most cases do it well. Can you say the same for an Arena stand? Not in my opinion Crazy
I always prefer a real country pub with local beer and good food given the choice, but it's also nice to have a Wetherspoons to visit and they have brought back to life many disused buildings and become a welcome addition to most towns, long may that continue Cool

Re: [grumpydwarf] wetherspoon pubs [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Wellington`s (Telford) new Weatherspoons, the Sir William Withering (discoverer of digitalis), duly ticked this evening; hidden away down New Street, one of many narrow pedestrianised shopping streets in Wellington; it took some finding as the local council seem to have made cuts and taken down street names signs. Very new and clean; ten handpulls dispensing the usual range of beers at 2.35 a pint; food good quality although the service was a tad slow; interesting to see how long it lasts as many of the surrounding shops are either shut or looking past their sell-by date; their evening trade could be quiet as there is nothing in Wellington to drag the punters in.
