Wetherspoon opens third pub in Birmingham airport

JD Wetherspoon today opened its third pub at Birmingham International Airport creating 35 jobs.

The new pub, simply called Wetherspoon, is located on the site of a former restaurant in terminal one (international departures, airside).

The pub, open from 4am until the last flight departs throughout the week, is managed by Steve Baldwin, who also runs the company's other pubs at the airport.

It also emerged today that Wetherspoon has pulled its 99p a pint offer in one of its city centre pubs in Exeter.

The move followed reports that younger drinkers were ordering five pints of Greene King IPA at a time at the George Meeting House, but the company insisted the price rise was "because of the pressures of higher rents and rates".
