Alnwick pub rumours quashed

RUMOURS that a national pub chain is to open imminently in Alnwick have been quashed.

Messages on Facebook last week stated that Wetherspoons would be announcing an Alnwick site in the next two weeks.

But the company has said that while it is looking at possible sites for a pub in the town, they will not be confirming a venue that soon.

A spokeswoman said that the pub chain is interested in the town but as yet no details have been finalised.
