9. There is top rate "banter".

The irony of this Wetherspoons is that most of the people in here only know enough words to talk about the weather, and spoons.

15. Wetherspoons uses local buildings that might otherwise get knocked down, like swimming pools, churches and post offices.

And while the British pub industry continues to shrink – at a rate of about 18 a week, according to CAMRA – Wetherspoons opened 29 pubs last year and passed the 900 mark this year, with more to come.

You might see the odd organ in the converted churches.

19. It's great if you've got kids – they do a drawing competition. Even through pissed adults enter their own ironic efforts.

20. Any trip to Spoons is enlivened by reading Wetherspoons magazine, which tackles THE most important issues of our age.

These people really like bhajis.

Funny how a lot of very positive letters get printed in the mag.

21. They opened a pub on a motorway – Junction 2 of the M40 at Beaconsfield – which is either amazing or represents the downfall of civilisation.
