Rising costs offset a big jump in sales at JD Wetherspoon as the pub chain continues to rail against its tax disparity with supermarkets.


Revenues for the six months to January 27 were 10% higher at £626.4 million, with like-for-like sales up 6.9%, but Wetherspoon's profits still fell 2.7% to £34.8 million on an underlying basis.
