The community of Woolwich, in southeast London, was pleased to see the reopening of The Great Harry.
The pub, destroyed by fire during the August-2011 riots, was opened again almost a year later, following a £1.3-million redevelopment project.
One group delighted by the return of their local Wetherspoon is the Southeast London Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branch.
Alan Jepson, branch chairman, said: “After The Great Harry was burned down, we sent a letter to Wetherspoon expressing our sorrow at the loss of the pub and offered encouragement and support for the provision of a replacement Wetherspoon pub in the area.
“We were delighted to receive a personal reply from chairman Tim Martin.”
