JD Wetherspoon

Along with visiting all 42 Scottish Football League grounds I have now also started a quest for the 48 JD Wetherspoon pubs in Scotland (this number does not include the various pubs at Scottish airports). On most of my football journeys I visit the local Wetherspoon's if there is one so I have decided to list them on this site as well since football grounds and pubs go hand in hand, or at least they do so in my book!

I know the Wetherspoon concept has its critics and some people probably prefer to visit a more authentic or typically local pub but I feel that the value for money offered by the Wetherspoon chain pubs is mostly excellent although I find the quality of the food served somewhat variable.
