11 More Wetherspoons Pubs Set To Close Including Three In Yorkshire

Another 11 JD Wetherspoon pubs have been put up for sale after a load were already closed over the last year.

The pub chain renowned for its cheap beers announced that it would close 32 of its pubs, last year due to a ‘commercial decision’.

Now 11 more of its pubs including two in Yorkshire have been put up for sale through CBRE and Savills on behalf of Wetherspoons.

The Gate House, a popular Wetherspoons in Doncaster city centre is up for sale as well as The Sir Norman Rae in Shipley, West Yorkshire and The White Hart, Todmorden.

Other Yorkshire pubs that have closed before this are The Silkstone Inn, Barnsley and the Running Horse, Airside at Doncaster Airport (for obvious reasons).
