WETHERSPOONS is famous for bargain grub and booze – but why do they have such quirky carpets?

Punters at the "Primark of pubs" have long wondered why the chain has such colourful and varied floorcoverings.

With more than 900 of its pubs dotted across the country, you are likely to have spotted the funky furnishings yourself.

And now Jon Randall, Wetherspoon's head of property development and acquisitions, has revealed why it has such colourful carpet.

He said the boozer likes to put emphasis on the design of its pubs, investing in every aspect and particularly the refurbishment.

He added:"All of our new pub carpets are individually designed, some with details to reflect aspects of the buildings’ history or local area."

So Wetherspoons fans have been so taken by the quirky carpets that they have set up blogs dedicated to them.

Kit Caless, a self confessed carpet connoisseur released a book about his obsession with Wetherspoons flooring in 2016.

But the thinking behind the funky carpet is not the only thing that fans of the chain have been fascinated with.

Earlier this year, a Spoons worker revealed why the chain never plays any music.

The answer was revealed in the Channel 5 programme, Wetherspoons: How Do They Do It and viewers were surprised by the answer.

Legend has it that the chain's founder, Tim Martin, read a famous essay by George Orwell called "Perfect Pub" which advised against music with meals.

A worker said: "It was a bold move. Whereas other pubs were taking the opportunity to embrace music and create an atmosphere, Tim went the opposite way."

The documentary series also revealed how the pub is able to keep its prices so low.

From speedy service to checking out competitors, all these unseen practices mean that you can get a cheap pint.

Many rival pubs are owned by big brewers which charge pub landlords low rent on the condition they buy all their booze from them at set prices.

But Wetherspoons operates under a different model, and owns many of its own buildings, meaning pub bosses can buy from anyone they want.

And with the amount of beer Wetherspoons sells, everyone is keen to supply them, meaning management can strike good deals.

Just like shopping around when you're doing your grocery shop, Wetherspoons can do the same and get the cheapest possible prices.
