The pub chain JD Wetherspoon has announced plans to open a £7million museum .
The hugely successful company run by Exeter businessman Tim Martin is growing into a British institution. In Devon alone there are now 24 ‘Spoonies.
Bosses submitted plans to transform The Moon Under Water pub in Wolverhampton city centre into a national museum and 70-bedroom hotel.
The museum will tell the history of the pub chain which started in 1979.
The pro-Brexit campaigner recently held a rally with Nigel Farage which ended with a pint at the Green Ginger on Torquay harbourside. The chain is so passionately pro-Britain that it recently banned all non-British products including Jagerbombs, Processo and Champagne.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “We feel the museum will prove popular with people who want to know more of the history of the company and see artefacts from the past. The fact that Wetherspoons wishes to house it in Wolverhampton is positive for the city.”
The drinks featured in the January sale are: a craft beer (Shipyard), one lager (Coors Light), two ciders (Strongbow Dark Fruit and Magners), Guinness, a guest ale, a selection of wines including three from Coldwater Creek (red, white and rose), three spirits; Gordon’s gin, Gordon’s pink gin and Smirnoff vodka (all inclusive of a mixer), six soft drinks; Old Jamaica Ginger Beer, ting (grapefruit crush), Pepsi Max, R Whites Lemonade, diet Pepsi and San Pellegrino (lemon and blood orange), as well as cocktail pitchers.
The sale prices include a pint of Shipyard at £2.29, a pint of Coors Light at £2.49, a glass of Coldwater Creek wine (175ml glass) at £2.20, a pint of Guinness at £2.59, a pint of Magners at £1.89, Gordon’s gin (single measure with mixer) at £2.70 and San Pellegrino at 89p.
The Wetherspoon spokesman added: “As always, staff at our pubs will serve customers responsibly.”
The sale is running from Wednesday, January 2 until Thursday, January 17 inclusive.
