    Wow.
    I never knew they sold it.
    All I ever see in those pubs are winos or Monday club regulars.

    To be fair, most of their regular clientele aren't usually the Champaign drinking type.

    On the news yesterday - they only sell Moet and Chandon ........... therefore stock / sell less that 100k bottles pa. which across their estate is small fry. The stopping of Prossecco is potentially a bigger decision - but yesterday tea time after it had run all day Tim Martin their boss modified what he was saying to " a review on stocks " - if you ask me this was just a puff piece to advertise Wetherspoons and Tim Martins own political views tbh - French champagne makers said they weren't at all bothered by the potential loss of 100k sales out of the 27m they send based on 2017 shipments to the UK.
     
  5. Are they still going to sell non-French Champagne?

    I don't like wine or champagne anyway so I couldn't give a rat's knackers.
