Wetherspoon has sold The Spinning Mill pub in Broughshane Street, Ballymena.

The Spinning Mill is one of five Northern Ireland pubs that the company has sold to The Granny Annie’s Group.

They will continue to run it as a pub and staff at the pub will be transferred to the new owner so there will be no job losses.

Wetherspoon founder and chairman Tim Martin said: “We understand that our loyal customers at The Spinning Mill will be disappointed with the decision to sell the pub.

“However, as a company we have to make commercial decisions and it was decided to sell the pub.”
