About Company

The famous writer George Orwell described his ideal pub – ‘Moon Under Water’. It is why the word ‘moon’ is used in the name of several Wetherspoon pubs. This pub occupies the former banking hall of Cocks, Biddulph & Company. Established on this site in 1757, the present building was completed in 1873. The prestigious bank eventually became a branch of Barclays, trading here until 1992.
