we should list the locations below
4. probably a few in London
5. Newcastle x2
thats six good guess!
Leamington Spa x2
in Spouters Corner (Wood Green) by myself and picking up a copy of the Wetherspoons Magazine. There was an interview in it with a couple that had been to every Wetherspoons in the UK, apart from one that was in an airport and you could only get to it if you had passed security.
Made me feel a bit sad if I'm honest.
Essex, Kent, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham... They're very handy places. Dependable.
I think two in Cardiff maybe
One in Bristol
That's it. They're crap.
Went to the Moon Under Water in Wolves this weekend.
Great bunch o' pubs.
let me consult my wetherspoons blog
Cardiff: 3 (approx)
King's Lynn: 2
Never knowingly been in one in London
Probably stumbled into one or two others
So I'm guessing eight or nine.
But I reckon I've easily done 20-25.
each one more depressing than the last.
awful awful places.
but I think I had been basing it on the frankly, terrifying yet sterile james Watt pub in Greenock.
Now that I've actually been to a few decent ones, I've got a bit of a wide on for them.
there are two good ones in glasgow- http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/pubs/the-edward-g-wylie
Also, the pub in Glasgow airport is a spoons, and while beggars can't be choosers, it's not bad.
London: 6? Possibly more
That makes 19. Throw in a couple for good measure- 23?
he's still funding UKIP isn't he, the 'Spoons owner?
I'm not listing them
29 in London, if not more (Forest Hill, Peckham, Croydon, Lewisham, E&C, London Bridge, Tower Hill x2, Chancery Lane, The Mall, Leicester Square, Holborn, Soho, Stoke Newington, Hackney, Twickenham, Kingston, Surbiton, Clapham, Denmark Hill, Brixton, Streatham x2, Crystal Palace, Lee, Marble Arch, Hammersmith, Shepherds Bush, Cannon Street, Catford)
Isle of Wight
Airports: at least 4? Two in Heathrow, one in Gatwick, Stansted
THERE MUST BE MORE
TWO on the Isle of Wight
Also the London list is 30
And the White Swan
Or the Masque Haunt on Old Street?
+1 for Camden
+1 for Victoria Station
+1 for Liverpool Street
+1 for Bank
+1 for the shit one near Bank
+1 for Henley
+1 for Hereford
+1 for Tooting
+1 for the other one in Islington
+1 for Brockley
Total = 64
Leeds x 3
thats all I can recall
London: about 11 or 12 (the one next to Angel tube ranks as the worst in London).
Airports: 4 (the one next to Pizza Express at the old Terminal 2 was great)
Guildford : 1
Coventry: 1 (worst I've been to. there was a queue to get in that snaked round the building at 9 in the morning).
St Austell: 1
You've never been to The White Swan on Highbury Corner. Obviously.
And where did the relish go. It all changed when they got the posh plates in 😤
1 x Belfast
1 x Derry
1 x Dublin
3 x Edinburgh (including airport)
1 x London (airport, Gatwick I think?)
i only went to that one for the first time fairly recently and it was just full of tourists instead.
The Counting House GLASGOW
The Counting House DUNDEE
The Bridge House BELFAST
The Diamond House DERRY
The Ice Wharf House DERRY
i definitely remember getting turned away from it on Halloween when i was 16 or 17
Portsmouth x 3
Southampton x 2
Brighton x 2
London, a fair few that I won't be able to remember, but let's say 10
Airports x 3
and so frankly have spent more time in them than I should have. My biggest use of them though is on holiday when I'm staying in a hotel with expensive breakfasts and there's a 'Spoons nearby.
