SALISBURY'S Wetherspoon will be opening a week earlier than planned, the chain has confirmed today.

The King's Head Inn on Bridge Street, otherwise known as Salisbury Wetherspoon, closed its doors to the public on March 1 for a refurbishment costing more than £500,000.

These works were halted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but it was previously confirmed by the pub chain that this project would resume on Monday, July 6.

Now is has been confirmed that instead of reopening on August 20, The King's Head will open its doors to the public on August 13.

A full redecoration of the pub, new flooring installed throughout and changes to the seating were included in this refurbishment project.

Improvements to the kitchen area have also taken place, new glass racks and back bar decorations installed, and adjustments have been made to the order and pay system.

Following the refurbishment around 30 new full and part-time jobs are on offer – 15 at the bar, ten in the kitchen and three cleaners.
