Considering that JD Wetherspoon has over 900 pubs, I think we should decide on how to have their merchant data filled in. Unlike most pub chains, wetherspoons pubs have individual names, with the Wetherspoons branding shown. I live in Guidlford and the pub we have is called The Rodboro Buildings.
Currently this is how it is shown in Mondo,
- I think the logo should be the same for all and should be the wetherspoons logo.
- How should the name be, personally I would like to have a single name, but considering each pub is unique, The Rodboro Buildings (Wetherspoon) would be ok?
- Also Eating Out would be the most appropriate one among the categories. I think Entertainment would be more appropriate for bowling, cinema, etc rather than drinking.
And for the logo, I have submitted this logo, if anyone else would like to use it.
This has been touched upon in this post. Although most wetherspoons pubs have their own twitter accounts (eg: Rodboro, Rochester Castle), their icons are usually a picture of the building and not a unique icon/logo.
Another merchant that have similar issues is Beefeater. Haven’t been to one with my Mondo card, so don’t know how they are handled. They too have twitter accounts for individual restaurants but the icon is usually a picture of the building.
