    In my area Wetherspoons seem to be going from strength to strength and taking over pub after pub. I've got mixed emotions about this. Although the beer prices normally fall and the venue gets a worthwhile re-jig I can't help but think they lose too much character in the process. Can't have the best of both worlds though!

    The Wetherspoon's in Birmingham with no name (other than Wetherspoon's) has now closed. The whole arcade is to be redeveloped.

    We always called that one the Dog and Blanket as big issue seller usually outside. There was a sentry post shelter and kennel there.

    Wetherspoons were still answering their phone this morning.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Heineken said talks between the companies before Christmas were constructive and that the dispute was over.

    I think this dispute has some relevance to my thread where I asked "Why Aren't Beer Prices Coming Down?"

    Default The January Sale Is On

    It started today and continues until Thursday 22nd January. Standard guests which seem to be decreasing in my local Spoons are £1.79, Premiums are £1.95 and Super Premiums are £2.10. The regular prices are £2.05, £2.20 and £2.35 and I wouldn't put it past them raising those prices after the sale.

    In London soon after on Sunday 25th the annual Spoons mini London festival starts for 7 days in South London. East London is next two weeks after and that's all I know so far.
