Wetherspoon is to start development work on two new pubs in the coming weeks, spending a combined £6.6m to build the pubs in Northallerton, North Yorkshire and Headingley in Leeds. Over 125 new jobs will be created at the pubs.
The company will start work on the Northallerton site on 28 September, with the pub set to open in March 2021.
On 5 October, Wetherspoon will begin development work on its Headingley site (CGI pictured), with the pub set to open in April 2021.
Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson said, “ We are delighted that development work is due to begin soon.
“We believe both pubs will be assets to their respective areas and hopefully act as a catalyst for further investment. We are confident that both pubs will appeal to a wide range of people.”
As mentioned in July, Wetherspoon is also developing Keavan’s Port, its pub and 89-bedroom hotel in the centre of Dublin. The pub and hotel is costing £19.4m to develop and is set to open in the near future.
