    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    A new Wetherspoons today, Sale. And another afflicted by parents letting kids play electronic games or tunes. It'll be the ruination of Wetherspoon if they let it continue!

    Every person in there is pissed off with a stupid version of "Kum By Ya" being played.

    I've got to sit outside to wait for my mate. If it's still going when he arrives. There will be a lot of effing and jeffing in their vicinity.

    I don't mind kids in pubs, but don't have them playing on phones FFS!

    Never mind the kids, the adults can be just as bad in 'spoons, especially watching noisy sports' fixtures or having FaceTube conversations with their mates.

Another recent visit saw a stereotypical druggy type doing wheelies outside who abruptly stopped when a hipsterish customer popped out for a fag (prearranged no doubt), followed by their complex 'hand shaking' before he re-entered, Eddie Kidd riding off.

    Wetherspoons rolls out new queuing rule at the bar 'to improve behaviour'

    Except in typical Retch style the story is the opposite of the headline

    "campaigning to end the recent phenomenon of queuing single file in pubs". The image showed a notice at the bar: "Please stand at the bar to be served. "

    Whatever you think of him or his pubs, the figures below are impressive

    J D WETHERSPOON PLC

    NEWS RELEASE - CORRECTION


    "The Telegraph newspaper published an interview with the head of the Trades Union Congress(TUC), Paul Nowak, yesterday ("Labour is coming for 'c----- employers' like Wetherspoons, says union chief -14th July 2024).

    A copy of the article can be found here -

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business...s-union-chief/

    In the interview, Mr Nowak said that Labour will make "c---- employers" such as Amazon and Wetherspoon pay the price for bad behaviour and that Wetherspoon along with "the likes of Amazon, Sports Direct, P&O Ferries" were "all anti-union employers who have built their business models on low-paid insecure, employment".

    The statements that Wetherspoon is "a c---- employer" and has built its "business model" on "low-paid insecure employment" are completely inaccurate and unjustified.

    Wetherspoon has been recognised as a Top Employer for 19 years, certified by the Top Employers Institute.

    Staff retention is at its highest ever level. 11,066 of the company's 42,854 staff have worked for the company for 5 years or more which is 14 per pub. Of those, 3,895 have worked for 10 years and 632 for 20 years.

    15,778 employees are shareholders of the company. For the first 6 months of this year, £21.2 million was paid to employees in bonus and shares, of which 99% was paid to staff below board level and 89.6% to staff working in pubs.

    Since 2007, £504 million has been paid to employees in free shares and bonus (approximately 55% of company profits).

    Since the share scheme was introduced, Wetherspoon has awarded 27.5 million shares to employees - approximately 22 per cent of all company shares in existence today.

    In addition, all staff are offered guaranteed minimum hours contracts, 96.9% of which have accepted those contracts with the company.
