JD Wetherspoon to reopen 400 sites on reduced hours

A number of the group’s sites will operate over reduced opening and menu offerings

JD Wetherspoon is set to reopen 394 of its pubs with beer gardens, rooftop gardens, and patios, in England from 12 April 2021.

While there has been no curfew put in place as a part of government measures, the pub chain will operate on a reduced hours structure.

The majority of the group’s pubs will open from 9am to 9pm, Sunday to Thursday, while staying open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday.

However, Wetherspoon noted that some of its premises have “restrictions on closing times” and therefore “will close earlier”.

The pub’s kitchens will still be operational from 12 April, serving a reduced menu including breakfast, burgers, pizza, deli deals, fish and chips, and British classics from 9am to 8pm every day.

While the group’s 394 open sites will not use a booking system, track and trace will be in operation throughout the chain’s sites.

John Hutson, chief executive at the company, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming our customers and staff back to our pubs.”
