The Poulton Elk in Poulton Le Fylde opened on the site of a former bar following a £1.4 million redevelopment project.
John Hutson said: “Wetherspoon continues to go from strength to strength and I am delighted that the company has reached this milestone.
“We will continue to open new pubs and create jobs for many more years to come.
“Wetherspoon’s success is a result of its fantastic hard-working and talented staff in the pubs and at head office, together with its extremely loyal customers.”
