Many of our pubs are restored from interesting and, in several cases, unique buildings. On this page, we’ll be exploring the history of our pubs, adding many more pubs in the months and years ahead.

Wetherspoon’s chairman and founder, Tim Martin, said: “We take immense pride in the restoration and refurbishment of wonderful buildings into Wetherspoon pubs. We feel that it is right to celebrate the history of the buildings.”
