Are pubs open on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday?

Many pubs throughout the UK receive requests for family meals over the Easter bank holiday.

Quite a few remain open, but some choose to close to give their staff time off to rest.

If your local pub is independently run they’ll dictate their opening hours over this period.

But we look at the opening hours for some of the country’s biggest pub chains.

Wetherspoons

Most Wetherspoons pubs open on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, but opening hours vary from branch to branch.

You can check by using the chain’s locator tool on its website or you can always pick up the phone and call.

The exact time they shut varies from venue to venue.

Venues that are usually open until 10pm remain open until 11pm, while some continue to serve right up until midnight or 1am.

We don’t have a full list of hours for each JD Wetherspoon pub so check with your local to see when opens.

Greene King

Greene King has over 300 pubs in London and 2,600 in the UK.

Opening times over the bank holiday vary depending on location.

But again, you can check the pub locator on its website which shows you when your local is open.

Mitchells and Butlers

Mitchells and Butlers own some of the most popular pubs in the UK including Harvester and Toby Carvery.

Like Greene King, opening times over this period vary across M&B’s pubs so you should check out either Harvester’s or Toby Carvery’s websites.

You can use their locator tools to find your nearest pub and the opening times.

Just enter your postcode, location or the venue you want to go to.
