Only JD Wetherspoon pub with wedding licence closes
JD Wetherspoon has closed the Knights Templar in London's Chancery Lane, the only Wetherspoon pub to hold a wedding licence.
The venue shut its doors for the final time on March 18 after 24 years of trading.
A spokesperson for JD Wetherspoon said: "The lease of the Knights Templar has come to an end. Since we have two other pubs within a short distance, we have, with regret, decided not to take up an option to renew the lease.
"We've had 24 great years at the pub and are very grateful to our amazing managers, Gerry and Jan Swords, their equally amazing team who work in the pub and to our wonderful and loyal customers. We are also grateful to our landlords, with whom we've always had an excellent relationship."
They added that all staff who were previously employed at the Knights Templar have been offered jobs at nearby pubs.
It comes after JD Wetherspoon confirmed that it has abandoned its £3m redevelopment of the Master Mariner pub in New Brighton and has instead put the site up for sale.
