    JD Wetherspoon has bucked the malaise that has seen rival groups close underperforming pubs by announcing plans to open 30 new sites creating 1,200 jobs.

    The expansion plans will see pubs open in cities across the UK, adding to the firm’s current total of 866.

    I bet Moby can't wait to see them all open!!!!

    It would be nice to see a Spoons in Tottenham, an area in which they largely originated. The nearest one is the John Gilpin in Upper Edmonton which has been a disaster beerwise on my last couple of visits.

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Default Wetherspoons London Mini Festival

    Wetherspoons have been holding a mini London Festival in their pubs since the 14th of January. It is the most complicated and poorly advertised festival I have ever come across. I only found the leaflet for it in Loughton today which is in er, Essex.

    They have split London into five areas, N,S,W,E and Central. The South London festival has gone and the North London one ends on Friday so I'm off to see what the Coronet has on Friday.

    The East London one is the 11th -15th Feb, the West London one is the 25th Feb - 01st Mar and the Central London one is 11th Mar - 15th Mar.

    The pub groupings are not all consistent, North, South and Central London seem OK but East London includes pubs in SW17, SW12, SW16, N16, SW2, SW9 and SW11!

    West London includes Croydon!

    Each pub is allocated an Ale Group which restricts the choice from all 20 beers down to a pathetic 5 or 6.

    Only three pubs are allocated Ale Group D1 which is all 20 and these are the Crosse Keys in the City, The George in Croydon and the Wibbas Down in Wimbledon.

    The ten breweries are By the Horns, Clarence & Fredericks, Cronx, East London, London Fields, Portobello, Redemption, Sambrooks, Twickenham and Fullers.

    The only Fullers beer is the weak Seafarers but the new and lacking a website Portobello brewery has three.

    The festival leaflets which can be found in Essex have a voting form for the best brewery!
