Spoon\'s Carpets: An Appreciation

    By

    If you've ever been in a Wetherspoon's and who hasn't, you've probably looked down and noticed the brilliantly-hued carpet beneath your feet. But that carpet isn't just for disguising spilt drinks... Each Wetherspoon has a carpet that is unique and bespoke, with a design inspired by the history of the building, its locale or the name of the pub. Thanks to the hit blog 'Wetherspoon's Carpets' - which posed the important question 'are any two Wetherspoon carpets the same?' - these tapestried hymns to British boozers have become a cultural sensation. Now, Kit Caless has travelled the length and breadth of the UK, from Berkshire to Renfrewshire, Bradford to Bridgend, to photograph over 70 splendid carpets from Wetherspoons and meet some of the pubs' regulars. Each entry appears in all its glorious colour, along with Caless's witty and informative text on the inspiration for each carpet's design, the history of the pub and key facts about the branch and its regulars. Will your Spoons be there?
