Wetherspoons fans spoke after the pub chain announced plans to reopen after the blockade.
The pub chain has shared a update this morning on what customers can expect when the day finally comes, with temperature controls and more workers to hire.
The leaders say branches will offer a reduced menu, while all workers will be given masks and protective glasses when the pubs reopen.
The company said that when it gets the official go-ahead from the relevant governments it will open its 875 pubs across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
While some fans are eager to return to their favorite pub once blocking restrictions are lifted, others remain firmly against the reopening of Wetherspoons , with many even boycotting the pubs.
ECHO reader Stephen Doyle said: “I have seen these comments a few times, the owner’s actions are not defensible against his staff or suppliers, my daughter works for Wetherspoons and uses the money to support herself and my nephew.
“Any boycott hurts them directly, the owner of the chain would sell and would still be rich, my daughter will not do it and neither will her friends and colleagues, when she reopens we will continue to eat family meals to show support for my daughter and her friends and colleagues . “
David Jones added: “I’ll be right there. God bless the spoons of wethers and all who sail in her, “while Allan Sanders wrote:” I will come back to support the staff who needs work. “
Others disagreed, and claimed that they would boycott Wetherspoons, whether it opened early or not.
Terry OJounru said: “No matter what changes they make, I won’t talk about it in one.”
Jeanette Bancroft added: “Our weekly recovery has always been spoons, but when it ends we will never set foot in a Wetherspoons again. Boycott.”
A third, Don Mclaughlin, wrote: “Boycott spoons. Find a suitable venue and take care of small businesses. “
Hannah Louise Doherty added: “I would prefer to wait for the opening of small local businesses. Never go to a spoon again. “
What else can you expect when Wetherspoons reopens?
Other changes that customers could see include screens mounted on the workplace and in the seating areas to separate the tables to meet social distance requirements.
Customers will also be encouraged to pay via the Wetherspoons app or card, even if cash is accepted.
There will be an average of 10 hand sanitizer dispensers around each pub, including at the entrance that customers and staff can use.
