JD Wetherspoon (JDW) has announced it will not serve Christmas dinners across its estate this year.

Instead, the chain will offer the choice of a Christmas ‘gourmet’ burger with beef, bacon, brie and cranberry; turkey pie with stuffing, roast veg and gravy; vegetarian wellington; or salmon fillet.

This follows JDW's decision to stop serving Sunday roasts earlier this year. 

JDW spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “Wetherspoon will not be serving a ‘traditional dinner’ in its pubs this year.

“However, its pubs will still be serving a range of Christmas meals all day, every day, from November 13 to December 22 inclusive.”  

Festive meals range

He added: “A few months ago, all Wetherspoon pubs stopped serving a Sunday roast​ and it would be difficult to bring a roast back just for the Christmas offer.”

Set price

For a set price, customers will be able to add a starter or a dessert to their Christmas main.

Starters include pâté and toast; breaded brie and cranberry; and soup. Christmas pudding and cheesecake will be available for dessert.

Gershon added: “A number of high street restaurant operators don’t offer a Christmas roast but do offer meals that are Christmas-based and Wetherspoon is taking a similar approach.”

Getting rid of the roast – would Sundays be the same?
