    Wetherspoons fans are lauding the UK pub chain after major coronation changes were announced for over 800 boozers across the country.

    Punters hoping to bag themselves a longer time shuffling their way through crowded bars and pint-strewn floors are in for a treat with the chain's recent announcement.

    Commemorating the coronation of King Charles III just the way he would want it, Wetherspoons is set to keep 800 of its establishments open for that cheeky extra hour.

    It means that Sunday, May 7 will see the boozers have their liquor licenses extended so everyone can "enjoy an extra pint or two" on the big day.

    Home Secretary Suella Braverman gave the green light to license extensions, meaning venues can keep themselves open until 1am, well past the usual last orders of 11pm.

    Every one of the Wetherspoons pubs remaining has announced they will be staying open for that extra hour, although the time of closure depends from pub to pub.

    Those that are usually set to call time on drinkers at 10pm will keep their bar available until 11pm, while some will continue serving into the early hours of Monday morning, The Sun reported.

    Hospitality sector alumni backed the move to keep boozers open for that extra hour, citing an overwhelming support from the public as one of many reasons.

    Other pub chains including Fullers and Greene King are also expected to keep themselves open for that extra hour, giving Brits the time they need to sink another Jaeger bomb in honour of the King.

    The Daily Star had previously reported an expected total of 50million Brits heading out to pubs, clubs and bars for the Coronation, in what was described as a "once in a generation" event.

    That once in a generation moment will see Brits sink their Baby Guinness's in spirit of the big day.

    Heineken has since predicted that 361 million pints of beer will be sank over the Bank Holiday weekend, with a bumper month of boozing expected for the UK.
