Wetherspoon Christmas and New Year’s opening hours – when are pubs serving alcohol and food?

WETHERSPOON punters hoping to raise a glass on Christmas Day will want to take note of the pub chain’s opening hours for the festive season.

Spoons hasn’t officially revealed its list of Christmas hours – instead, it’s advising customers to check their local to find out when last orders will be.

When we asked Wetherspoon for a full list, it said Christmas hours will vary between each boozer.

For customers looking to head down for a festive tipple, it’s worth checking the online pub finder for more information about your local.

The pub chain did confirm it will once again not be serving food on December 25, after scrapping Christmas dinner back in 2016.

Boozers will stop serving food from its Christmas menu - which includes a Baileys chocolate bread and butter pudding - on December 24.
The only exception to this is Wetherspoon pubs in airports, which will be serving food on December 25.

Customers nationwide can still expect to toast Christmas Day with their favourite drink, as all establishments will be serving alcohol on Christmas Day.

Wetherspoon currently has 875 pubs and 58 hotels across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
