    Apparently Spoons have put their prices up and people are outraged by it...

    Do people really care that much?

    They're all fine. Pretty much all that can be said on the matter.

    Although they are good for cheap pre drinks, hope student loans will go up to reflect this increased cost of living.

    Yates is owned by Stonegate Pub Company, who are competitors of Wetherspoons. I used to work at a Yates, and I think most of the customers walked in thinking it was a Wetherspoons.

    Days after announcing that the chain is axing the classic Sunday roast, JD Wetherspoons has increased the prices on its Breakfast Club menu by between 5% and 10%. The company said however that top-selling beer brands would not be affected by price rises.

    At the beginning of March, the pub chain announced that Sunday roasts would no longer be served at Wetherspoons, saying that customers could replace it with a Sunday brunch meal with a drink. From 13 March, Sunday roasts will stop being available.

    In addition to that news, the Mirror reported that prices on the Breakfast Club menu in Wetherspoons pubs had now risen by between 5% and 10% – a full English breakfast now costs £3.25, up from £2.99, a rise of almost 10%; a large filter coffee or cup of tea now costs £1.10, up from 99p; and a bowl of porridge has risen 20p to £2.39.

    Founder and owner of JD Wetherspoons plc, Tim Martin, opened the first Wetherspoons pub in 1979 and the company now runs 956 pubs around the UK, as well as a number of hotels. Martin has been a vocal critic of the government's living wage plans, saying in September last year: "By pushing up the cost of wages by a large factor, the government is inevitably putting financial pressure on pubs, many of which have already closed."
