The new Order and Pay app

Customers at the chain's pubs will now be able to let their phone and bar staff take the misery out of queuing at a crowded bar by placing their order from their table.

The pub chain has released its 'Order & Pay' app across the country.

You tell the app where you're sitting, what food and/or drink you're after, and the bar staff pick up the request and bring it to your table.

The company has been testing the app in a few of its pubs. Now the technology has been rolled out across 900 pubs in the UK and Ireland.

"Want to enjoy a meal with youngsters, but cannot leave them unattended, while you go to the bar to order – use the app,"

Spoons writes on its website. "Visiting the pub on your own and do not want to lose your table – use the app.

"Not so mobile, or sitting a long way from the bar, and unable to easily negotiate a busy pub – use the app. Don’t want to carry a large round of drinks back through a packed pub or to have to make more than one trip to the bar? No problem – use the app."

“Since its introduction, the Wetherspoon Order & Pay app has proven a big hit with customers and is now available in all of our pubs across the UK,” says the company.

“No more queuing at the bar – just use the Order & Pay app, sit back and relax, and the order is delivered directly to you at your table."
