Curries, mixed grills and steaks are all off the menu when Wetherspoon reopen across the country on April 12.

Instead, chains will be running a reduced list of meals when they open again so that staff can socially distance.

What's on offer on the full menu at Wetherspoons varies by pub, but at least 44 meals are missing from the menu which we're all used to, including most of the breakfast options, two of the chicken burgers, and all the curries and grill items.
