Well-loved Eastwood pub to welcome back customers as Wetherspoon reopens more venues

JD Wetherspoon is set to reopen another 44 pubs with outdoor areas in England on April 26, as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

Wednesday, 21st April 2021, 4:20 pm
The Lady Chatterley will reopen to customers next week.

Pubs re-opening next week include The Lady Chatterley in Eastwood, as well as sites in Nottingham, Ilkeston and Lincoln.

Others opening in Nottinghamshire include The Trent Bridge Inn, West Bridgford and Lloyds in Hockley. The Observatory in Ilkeston will also open its doors on Monday, April 26.

Many will be extending their opening timings for an extra hour each day to make up for lost time.

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

Pubs will offer a slightly reduced menu that includes breakfast, burgers, pizza, deli deals and fish and chips.

The pubs will not be operating a booking system and 'test and trace' will be in operation.

In total, 533 of the company's 871 pubs across the country will be open by the end of the month.

The pub chain opened 394 of its locations on 12 April — the date set by the government for the reopening of non-essential retail and outdoor operations for hospitality venues.

Pubs will be open from 9am to 10pm from Sunday to Thursday and 9am to 11pm on Friday and Saturday, although some may have to close earlier due to restrictions.

Chief executive John Hutson said: “We look forward to welcoming our customers and staff back to our pubs.”
