Tim Martin, owner and founder of Wetherspoons, made the unexpected trip to the Felix about two weeks ago, to meet and talk with some of the pub’s ‘long-serving’ staff members.

He was even spotted by some eagle-eyed ‘Spoons drinkers who recognised him.

The Hinckley Free Press reached out to a spokesperson for the chain to find out why he had came to town.

Spokesperson for the chain, Eddie Gershon, stated that a story about the pub’s long-serving staff members is to feature in the next edition of Wetherspoons News, which is the pub’s own publication which is available to read at all of their sites in the UK.

In a statement issued to the Free Press, Tim Martin described it as a ‘pleasure’ to meet with staff members at the pub.

He said: “We are proud of all of the long-serving staff at The Felix Holt and it was a pleasure to meet them during my visit.

“Throughout the whole company, Wetherspoon has many long servers among its 42,500 staff members, with five, 10, 20, 25 and even 30 years’ service – and we are proud of them all.”
