Wetherspoon's pubs will stop serving roasts from this Sunday

Kate Lloyd

It's a sad day for anyone who's ever spent Sunday desperate for a roast but with only £6.75 in their pocket.

JD Wetherspoon has announced that it's ditching its £6.75 Sunday roast menu in order to focus on the everyday menu. A spokesperson for the pub chain explained they needed to 'make decisions which are right for the company.'

Spoons fan Nicholas Hair has started a petition to keep the once-a-week deal. Writing on he said: 'Tim Martin's spokes-people seem to suggest that this is a "commercial decision". But how? It's popular, it's proper, it's perfect the way it is. Yes, you could put the prices up a tiny bit if that's really necessary BUT KEEP OUR SUNDAY ROASTS! We deserve that dry Chicken, tinned Beef, ruined Mashed Potato and barely defrosted Roastie.'

The brand's current selection of roasts includes beef, chicken and a lentil roast, each coming with roast potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. It will be served until Mother's Day on Sunday.
