About Us

Our Chairman, Tim Martin, set up J D Wetherspoon in 1979. Why ‘J D Wetherspoon’? Because ‘J D’ form the initials of Sheriff JD Hogg, from ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ TV series, of course, while Mr Wetherspoon was one of Tim’s teachers in New Zealand!


In addition to our Wetherspoon pubs, we also run Lloyds No.1 bars – the same great standards and value, but with music. We also have Wetherspoon hotels – quality accommodation, at great prices.
