READERS have been getting in touch to give us their thoughts ahead of Wrexham's newest bar opening next weekend.

Now known as 'The Midland', on High Street in Wrexham, the site was formerly the home of the North and South Wales Bank Wetherspoon pub until January this year.

The new owners, Sam Ansloos and his dad Marcus Ansloos have been looking for a venue to expand their brand.

The team has the Con's Club, in Ruabon which opened two years ago and a year later opened The Cefn Club, Cefn Mawr.

Now they are bringing their business model to the centre of Wrexham at The Midland.

It will officially open to the public as of Saturday, December 2, with a grand opening taking place at 8am that day.

According to Sam, the venue will be “all purpose” with plans to open at 8am till late at night, serving food which will be locally sourced.

It will also have a “sports bar” feel, with over 30 TV screens, pool tables, and dart boards.

The Midland will also host themed nights, have entertainment and live music on offer. 


Readers have been getting in touch with us to share their excitement ahead of the venue opening to the public.

Leah Tattum said: "Be good to see the space being used rather than standing empty! Good luck to all involved sounds great."

Melanie Johnson told us: "Great for Wrexham."

Peter Humphreys said: "The owners done a great job with the cons club in Ruabon, I’m sure they’ll smash it."

Leasa Gale added: "Good luck all ..looking forward to visiting it ..lovely people brought back loads of entertainment in our village of Cefn Mawr."

Andy Cronshaw said: "Walked past the other day had a look inside it, it's looking good."

Debbie Moss wrote: "Good luck to the new owners, far too many empty shops etc in the town!"

Carlos Jordan-Thompson said: "It used to be the Midland Bank in the 80s. Nice location for a pub though."

The new name of the building, The Midland, does indeed derive from the building’s original purpose as a bank, which it was last used as in 1999, before becoming a pub in 2001.
