MAJOR REFURB: The Kings Head, Salisbury's Wetherspoon pub, will be closed for a month.


The refurbishment means that The King's Head in Salisbury will also be closed during JD Wetherspoon's huge bi-annual beer festival. Their 'world's biggest' Spring real-ale festival is due to run from Wednesday 25 March until Sunday 5 April, inclusive.


A spokesperson for JD Wetherspoon told Spire FM News they're carrying out a major 'redecoration and refurbishment' inside the historic King's Head Inn building on Bridge Street. The work is focusing on the pub, bar, and dining area. Exact details about the overhaul haven't been revealed yet, but the JD Wetherspoon spokesperson has said they'll release more information about the work in due course.

It's been almost 6 years since The King's Head Inn was last refurbished, at a cost of more than £1m.

The hotel side of the business will remain open as usual, but guest will not be able to dine or purchase food there due to the pub's refit.
