I would go with eating out as the category, weatherspoons for the logo and then the name of the pub and then in brackets to have weatherspoons.
I would probably go somewhere else for food.
Thanks for the comments! I have seen a lot of these pubs come in recently, and my default has been to change the name to just the pub name (e.g. The Rodboro Buildings), and the logo to the Wetherspoons twitter logo.
I think keeping the name just as the pub, without Wetherspoons in brackets, makes most sense. This is because the name could otherwise probably end up far too long and not all visible.
In terms of the logo, I appreciate that the Wetherspoons twitter logo is not ideal, but twitter is our default (for many reasons). If, @hatimbt, you have submitted another logo I will check to see if it works (size, quality etc), and change it to that if so. Thanks for sending it in… it looks much better than the twitter logo so I hope it works!
Regarding the category, opinion seems to be split down the middle . I think leaving it as Entertainment for the time being seems to be the best route, especially because we are planning on looking at categories as a whole quite soon!
I would certainly like the Weatherspoon logo and just the pub name as I like to track which one I spent it in. As for category I would like to see one for something like Socialising or Pubbing or even just simply drinking lol. I spend far more there on drink that food
I’d certainly support a review of the categories. For me spending money in pubs is not usually Eating Out of Entertaining and it would be good to track how much I actually spend down the boozer!
I’ve come across a few in South Wales which don’t align to the above, I’ll push some feedback through the app for them now. What’s been discussed makes the most sense to me.
Actually thinking about this… is this even still possible as Wetherspoon no longer have any social media so I can’t provide the twitter handle for the feedback
Try just submitting the URL of the logo in the OP?
I’m a fan of the pub name and that logo, but it’d be nice to have an automated Wetherspoon tag or reference for search and grouping
I’ll do that and see, if not I’ll contact support, always feel bad for contacting Cops with small things like this I’m sure they have more important queries, I know I shouldn’t though
I imagine they triage requests. I think you should only feel bad if you’re selecting the “my query is urgent” option for this kind of thing.
Easier to use the Wetherspoons app and then it’ll always have the same logo/name
And then you don’t even need to stand and wait at the bar!
How bizarre I was just on railforums and saw a post from you! Thought my browser was doing some sort of weird caching at first
Sssshhhh… It’s not ‘hip’ to admit you browse those forums
Be careful not to go off track and derail this thread!
Same here. Refuse to go to Weatherspoons due to the vocal xenophobic guy running it.
Let’s not derail the thread. This is about merchant data. There are hundreds of Wetherspoons, so how can we get the icon and merchant data updated, especially when they have no Twitter presence any more?
They can take it from the website.
You can now place a link to the image in the box that asks for the merchants Twitter account. They just haven’t updated it in the app yet.
You can then discuss or follow up on it’s progress in this thread:
