It's 7am, the morning after the night before, you are staggering to work and spy a Wetherspoon pub, open for business. But if it is the hair of the dog you require, prepare to be disappointed.
The 750-strong pub chain today announced plans for early-morning opening but for the first two hours they will be an alcohol-free zone. There will be no beer on sale, just traditional breakfast fare like coffee and bacon sandwiches.
From April 28th Wetherspoon's doors will open two hours earlier to cash in on the demand for an early caffeine fix.
