Wetherspoons To Serve Up 100 New Pub Jobs In Belfast

Wetherspoons is to treble its number of pubs in Belfast with investment of up to £4 million - a move which will create around 100 full or part time bar jobs in the Northern Irish city.

The JD Wetherspoon sign is already a very famous brand on the streets of Britain, but, currently, the name only stands above the doors of nine pubs in Northern Ireland. With just one Wetherspoon bar in Belfast at the moment, the chain is looking to establish two more new pubs in the city and says it will create dozens of new jobs when the doors open within the next twelve months.

One of the new Wetherspoons pubs will be a very convenient watering hole for Belfast students, as it will be opening at a converted church in close proximity to Queen's University. The other new Wetherspoons bar will be located in the city’s busy shopping area on Royal Avenue at the site of a former JJB outlet which has remained empty for the last couple of years.

Northern Irish founder and chairman of Wetherspoons, Tim Martin, sounded optimistic about the new venture, saying: “It's early days for the new pubs and we have to go through the planning and application process. It's been very successful so far and I'm hoping for between £3m to £4m being invested between the two outlets, creating 100 jobs. I believe people will think it will help improve the scene in the city.”

If the two new pubs prove a success then Mr Martin is hopeful that there could be room for a further ‘half dozen’ Wetherspoon pubs in Belfast, and many more throughout other parts of Northern Ireland.
