Why is Wetherspoons closing some of its pubs?
In 2022, Wetherspoon revealed its sales are still lagging behind pre-pandemic levels.
Spoons boss Tim Martin said far more people now drink in their homes rather than in pubs.
Venues have also hiked beer and grub prices by up to 7.5 per cent, The Sun exclusively revealed in February 2023.
Pubs have been knocked by rising costs as inflation sends prices soaring and less demand among cash-strapped punters.
How can I save money at Wetherspoons?

It's worth joining in the craze as you can get something like a gourmet steak and a beer over a pound cheaper than normal.
You used to be able to order the menus only on certain days of the week but Wetherspoon made the dishes available everyday in June 2022.
