Pub operator JD Weatherspoon is to open 30 new pubs across the country, including some in Selby and Whitby. 1200 jobs will be created across the UK.
– Tim Martin, Wetherspoon chairman
We are looking forward to opening the new pubs, many of which will be in areas where Wetherspoon is not yet represented.
We are also pleased to be creating so many new jobs, especially during a recession.
There is no question that we would open more pubs and create more jobs in 2013 if the increasing tax burden on pubs was reduced."
