J D Wetherspoon is to open eight pubs and a hotel in the next six weeks, mostly in unrepresented areas.

The first of the eight pubs, The Booking Office, opens at Edinburgh’s Waverley train station on June 14.

Between June 14 and July 19 Wetherspoon will open pubs in Newton le Willows, Largs, Northolt, Formby, Huntingdon, Chatham and Okehampton.

A hotel will also open at the Northolt pub and a further hotel will open, in September, alongside the Huntingdon pub.

Wetherspoon chief executive, John Hutson said: “We are looking forward to opening our new pubs and hotels, a number of which are in towns where we are not yet represented.”
