Fully reopened and functional - after lockdown.

A considerable amount of scaffolding is in place, though.

Over a large portion of the indoor area.

Although no work seems to be happening.

Just before coronavirus, this unique Wetherspoons closed for internal refurbishment.

The listed building has many delicate features to be maintained - such as the intricate plaster work, on the walls and ceilings.

On reopening, hopefully, the work will be fully completed - as Tunbridge Wells has no other pub in this league.

Arguably the finest Wetherspoons pub - in the country.

Where operas are still performed, occasionally.

One of the bars is on stage!

Seemingly this listed/historic building is in need of some TLC.

No reopening date was posted externally.

Might well be the best of the Wetherspoon 1,000.

Historic, well run and very busy.

Was bombed during WWII.

Wetherspoon's finest. Impressive building, opened 1902 as an opera house - and later a cinema and bingo hall.

Periodically, operas are still performed - when the pub closes to allow them; the stage, and much of the original seating, still exists.

A lovely and unique setting for a few ales - with the venue's history illustrated on the walls. Now a listed building.
