Readers have been sharing their memories of a Romford Wetherspoon pub that has closed its doors for the final time.

The chain announced that The World’s Inn pub, in South Street, had its last trading day on Sunday (April 16) and thanked customers for their support.

Eddie Gershon, spokesperson for Wetherspoon, said it was a commercial decision and added that none of the staff members have been made redundant as they were given jobs in other pubs.

The Recorder reported on the closure earlier this week and reaction to the news came pouring in on Facebook.

One reader, E Maughan Joyce, said: “Meet (sic) and lost some good people in there over the last 15 years."

Sarah Clark tagged her friends about the great nights they had in the pub. “Can’t believe it”, she added.

Scott Dennis shared he met his wife in the pub, while Chloe Dillaway commented: “I’ve spent all day gutting the place”.

Another reader, Kimberley Fraser, questioned the need to shut it down. She asked: “It’s always so busy in there, I can’t understand why they would close it?”

Lee French bemoaned the closure and said: “Romford is becoming a ghost town."

Mr Gershon confirmed that the pub remains on the market and said the company will continue to run The Moon and Stars pub that is on the same street.
