Wetherspoon replaces the Christmas dinner

You might not be too happy about the pub giant’s controversial decision.

Popular pub chain Wetherspoon will scrap its traditional Christmas dinner from the menu this year.

Last year, customers were able to tuck in to a ‘proper’ Christmas feast of turkey, roast and mashed potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, peas, Brussels sprouts, carrots and cranberry sauce, but this winter that won’t be available.

Instead, customers will be greeted with some festive alternatives on the menu including a brie, cranberry and bacon beef burger, turkey pie and vegetarian wellington. But customers wanting the traditional experience won’t be disappointed with the desserts –Wetherspoons will be offering Christmas pudding served with either brandy sauce or custard.

A spokesperson for Wetherspoon said: ‘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.’

The controversial axe of the Christmas dinner follows the complete removal of roast dinners from the pub giant’s menu.
