21 first-look pictures as The Six Chimneys Wakefield reopens following £3m renovation by Wetherspoon

A popular JD Wetherspoon pub in Wakefield has reopened today following a £3million renovation project.

The Six Chimneys in Kirkgate has doubled in size after the pub chain took over two adjoining properties - including the former Wakey Tavern pub. An additional 4,000 square feet of customer space has been added, as well as a new kitchen, bar, bespoke carpet and extended beer garden.

Newly-appointed pub manager Laura Mason, who was previously at the The Scribbling Mill in Leeds, has taken over the pub. We take a look inside as the pub reopens its doors.
