JD Wetherspoon to open £2.5m pub at Waterloo Station

4th April 2024 | Jack Oliver

JD Wetherspoon is set to invest £2.5m opening a new pub at Waterloo Station, called The Lion and the Unicorn.

Last year, the pub operator submitted plans to open a pub across four units on the upper ground floor of The Sidings, Waterloo Station’s new shopping and leisure complex.

The pub – which is set to open this summer – will offer views in from the station concourse.

JD Wetherspoon chairman and founder, Sir Tim Martin, said: “We are looking forward to opening our new pub. We are confident it will appeal to a wide range of people and be a great asset to the station itself.”

London & Continental Railways’ asset management director, Sian Evans, added: “The Sidings at Waterloo is set to become one of London’s leading leisure and entertainment destinations. The new Wetherspoon pub will provide another great reason for people to visit.”

In March, JD Wetherspoon said it had potential for about 1,000 pubs in the UK, despite reducing the size of its estate over the last decade.
