Wetherspoon’s pubs are selling six London favourites

Laura Richards

Cheap pub champions JD Wetherspoon have announced plans to sell six of their classic London pubs in a cull of 33 Wetherspoon's pubs across the UK. Members of the chain who face the chop include Forest Hill favourite The Capitol and Putney's popular Railway. While they may become pubs, restaurants or bars in a new guise, we'll deeply miss racks of jagerbombs, onion rings as fat as you like and those Picasso-style carpets. Seriously though, these are stunning pubs. Take a look at our homage and find out if your local is up for the axe.

The Capitol, Forest Hill

Forest Hill dazzler with a grandiose, theatre-style layout and David Bowie on the walls. #RIP all round.

Oyster Rooms, Fulham

Laters to a jazzy carpet and a jazzy facade at this Fulham Broadway boozer. Waa!

And it's tally ho indeed for this north London boozer.

Maybe that's not all bad, though...

Also for the chop is Islington's Glass Works and Hammersmith's Plough and Harrow. Sad times.
