As well as opening new pubs, Wetherspoons will also use the funds to upgrade existing branches.

This includes “significant extensions” to 57 of its booozers.

Wetherspoons founder and chairman Tim Martin said: “Our immediate  investment will provide work for architects, contractors and builders as well as result in 2,000 new jobs for staff in our pubs.

“We are geared up to start on the first projects within a few months.

“However, the investment is conditional on the UK opening back up again on a long-term basis, with no further lockdowns or the constant changing of rules.”

Here are where the new pubs will open:

  • Dublin
  • Leeds
  • Kings Norton (Birmingham)
  • Newport Pagnell
  • Shawlands (Glasgow)
  • Felixstowe
  • Heswall
