Although he did not provide details on all menu removals, Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon told the Evening Times: “We have taken some meals off our menu and replaced them with new dishes for our new menu launch on May 16.

“Wetherspoon serves a wide range of meals to suit all tastes and we are always keen to evolve our offer.”
