    might explain why they've been closing other Spoons, they are financing this!

    One surprise for me on the list is the Monks Retreat in Reading , I am no JDW fan but its far superior to the Hope Tap at the other end of the street.

    Some of these are on the lists dating from June and November last year. Others are from the ad-hoc closures earlier in the year. The High Wycombe and Didsbury ones had been reported as saved! The Stirling one was a proposed outlet so isn't a closure as it hadn't opened.

    I make it 26 new ones (I expect I've miscounted).

    Banbury Fleur-de-Lis
    Bathgate James Young
    Berwick Leaping Salmon
    Birmingham Solomon Cutler
    Bootle Merton Inn
    Boscombe Sir Percy Florence Shelley
    Bradford Sir Titus Salt
    Cheadle Hulme Kings Hall
    Dagenham Lord Denman
    Ellesmere Port Thomas Telford
    Forest Hill Capitol
    Hull William Wilberforce
    Mansfield Stag & Pheasant
    Mitcham White Lion Of Mortimer
    Newbury Diamond Tap
    Newcastle Union Rooms
    Newport Tom Toya Lewis
    Newquay Cribbar
    North Finchley Tally Ho
    Nuneaton Felix Holt
    Putney Railway
    Reading Monks Retreat
    Rugby Lawrence Sheriff
    Sunderland Lambton Worm
    Torquay London Inn
    Walton On Thames Regent


    I reckon around a dozen of those are in the South and that includes Banbury which to me is the Midlands. I doubt that the good people of Newport in South Wales would take kindly to being classed as in "London and the South".
    For me the most surprising one is the Railway in Putney. With the Rocket and the Fulham Oyster Rooms already earmarked for closure this leaves a whole swathe of SW London without a JDW.

    Now why did that comment not surprise me??? I did wonder how it would be phrased!

    They've definitely picked the wrong one in Nuneaton. The Felix Holt is one of the best ones I've been to while the William White is a full blown Lloyds and one of the worst in their estate.
