Wetherspoon currently has no plans to close more Dorset pubs

WETHERSPOON has confirmed it currently has no plans to sell any more of its pubs in Dorset.

Pub operator JD Wetherspoon has confirmed the appointment of CBRE and Savills to sell seven of its pubs in addition to the 32 pubs that were put on the market in September.

This included the already-closed Christopher Creeke site in Holdenhurst Road, which is still up for sale according to the JD Wetherspoon website.

Paul Breen, director at Savills, said: “Despite the volatility in the current market interest in the properties which went onto the market in September has been encouraging with terms now agreed for several of the sites. We expect these additional properties to be equally appealing.” 

The seven new properties for sale are as follows:

  • Coronet, Holloway
  • Cross Keys, Peebles
  • General Sir Redvers Buller, Crediton
  • Lord Arthur Lee, Fareham
  • Plough & Harrow, Hammersmith
  • Saltoun Inn, Fraserburgh
  • Thomas Leaper, Derby

All of the properties will continue to remain open and trading as Wetherspoon outlets until they are sold.

Christopher Creeke closed its doors on April 13, 2022. 

In October 2021, Wetherspoon announced it recorded its biggest loss on record as the business suffered heavily from the Covid-19 restrictions.
