WETHERSPOONS has announced the reopening off more pubs across the country next week as lockdown restrictions continue to ease-including The Swan in Weymouth.

A further 44 pubs in England will be open for business from April 26, adding to the 394 which opened last week.

JD Wetherspoon will also go ahead with opening 60 of its pubs in Scotland and 32 in Wales next week and three pubs in Northern Ireland on April 30.

It will result in 533 of the company’s 871 pubs being open.

From April 26 all Wetherspoon pubs, including those that opened on April 12, will be extending their opening times for an extra hour each day.

Customers will be able to enter the pubs to gain access to the outside area and also to use toilets.

The second step of Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown went ahead as planned last week as pubs and restaurants welcomed back customers for outdoor drinking and dining.

Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson said: “We are looking forward to opening the extra pubs in England as well as those in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“We look forward to welcoming our customers and staff back to our pubs.”
