Full list of Wetherspoons pubs up for sale across the UK – is your local at risk of closing? | The Sun

WETHERSPOONS has put 39 of its pubs up for sale after two closed their shutters for good.

In September 2022, the pub chain announced it was putting 32 boozers up for sale.

In November, it announced a further seven would be going up for sale.

Now, the locations for these seven have been confirmed.

The pub chain has already closed The Edmund Halley in Lewisham, London, and The Postal Order in Worcester.

The Willow Grove in Southport is due to close early this year, as well, no later than April.

While the 39 pubs have gone up for sale, that doesn't mean they will definitely close.

They will remain open as Wetherspoons pubs until they are bought.

Of the pubs up for sale, 11 are in London, while others based in major cities including Southampton and Derby.

Pubs have been hit by a cocktail of cost increases as inflation sends prices soaring and less demand among cash-strapped punters amidst the cost of living crisis.

The pub chain saw like-for-like sales drop 1.1% in the five weeks to November 6, 2022, when compared with pre-pandemic trading in 2019.

But in the same month, Wetherspoons' chairman Tim Martin said the firm remained “cautiously optimistic”.

He said he previously set out “various threats to the hospitality industry and these continue to apply”.

“Those caveats aside, in the absence of further lockdowns or restrictions, the company remains cautiously optimistic about future prospects,” he said.
