A spokesperson for Weatherspoon’s confirmed the end of the road for The Bears Head in Penarth, Wales, prompting punters to start a petition to save it.

One person commented: “So disappointed Bears Head will be sorely missed by many regulars.”

Another added: “So disappointing, Bears Head will be sorely missed and is a very popular and important place in Penarth town centre.”

A third agreed: “Sad state of affairs isn’t it,” while a fourth wrote: “Absolutely pointless.”

There is no set date on when the pub will close and it will continue to operate as a Wetherspoon pub until its closure date.

Staff have been assured there will be no redundancies and they will be offered jobs at other branches.

Wetherspoon has served a break notice on the lease.

It comes as Pub operator JD Wetherspoon revealed that it will be investing a whopping £2.5 million into developing a new pub near Waterloo Station.

The pub will be called The Lion and the Unicorn and will be located in The Sidings Waterloo Station, near Black Sheep Coffee and Nando’s.

The Bears Head isn’t the only Wetherspoon’s to close recently.

The company also shut down one of its most “beautiful” pubs.

The Asparagus was among four other Wetherspoons in south London which were put up for sale last September but now it has officially closed.

The Asparagus opened on Falcon Road in 1998 and holds two floors, a garden patio and a basement.
