Wetherspoons worker shares real reason pubs don’t play music

The real reason you never hear music played in Wetherspoons pubs has been revealed. The pub giant refrains from playing any tunes in all its pubs nationwide.

Channel 5 programme, Wetherspoons: How Do They Do It, has spoken to workers and insiders over the secrets of the pub chain. And the topic of music came up.

Supposedly, pub boss Tim Martin read a famous essay by George Orwell called “Perfect Pub” which advised against music with meals. An insider told the cameras: “It was a bold move. Whereas other pubs were taking the opportunity to embrace music and create an atmosphere, Tim went the opposite way.”

Founded in 1979 by Martin and based in Watford, the company operates 925 pubs as of June 2021. This includes the sub-brand of Lloyds No.1 bars, and around 50 Wetherspoon hotels.

There are over 850 Wetherspoon’s in the UK, each have an individually designed carpet to compliment the building, the area or the person the pub was named after. Jon Randall, Wetherspoon’s head of property development and acquisitions, said: “We place particular emphasis on the design of our new pubs, investing heavily in every aspect, as well as in the refurbishment of our older premises.

“With more than 900 pubs, that is a lot of carpet. All of our new pub carpets are individually designed, some with details to reflect aspects of the buildings’ history or local area. It is great to see some of our customers, who are obviously loyal fans, taking an active interest with this unusual online collection.”
