According to Waterford Local Radio this morning Weatherspoons have bought two premises in Waterford City centre, one in John Roberts Square (no pubs actually in the square but T&Hs is just off as is the Olde Stande both closed for a while and large enough) and another in Arundel Square (City Arms is the obvious choice, biggish open space and empty for a few years)
I am not sure how I feel about this, I welcome more pubs (re)opening in Waterford and the possibility of cask ale choices,but, the few spoons I have been in I haven't liked
It closed a few years ago Shane. Stephen Wadding has opened again recently only a few yards away where Fitzgeralds/Flash's/Plan B used to be on High Street under the name The City Arms in the last few months.
It must be unique that the same person has had a pub by the same name in three different locations in the city
Haha never noticed it had been converted! That will tell you what I thought of it as a pub. The only other pub in Arundel square was Johnny Aylwards Arundel Inn and that is gone a long time
Oddly I switched on the radio after I was texted the news and there has been no mention of it since, I haven't been able to find any mention of it online either.
I did hear that they were interested in T&Hs but felt it was too small and I just heard a few minutes ago that they had shown interest in the old TSB bank in Arundel Square but where they would get a licence I don't know.
