The new Huntingdon Wetherspoon pub looks set to open this winter, The Hunts Post understands.

The pub chain is understood to want to link the 4,623 sqft Grade II-listed Old Post Office to the George Hall, on George Street, which sits on the corner of the site, to create a single large pub and dining area covering about 3,500 sqft. It is expected to create about 40 jobs.

The plans would also include demolishing the former sorting office to create an outdoor patio and garden area.

The company, which originally had ambitions for a summer opening, could not confirm a timescale for when the pub would be finished, but said it was awaiting feedback from Huntingdonshire District Council.

  • I agree Angela, hopefully they'll give it a name appropriate to the local area - 'The Oliver Cromwell'? Or perhaps 'The Kings Head'?

  • These lovely old buildings have been standing empty and decaying for far too long. At least Wetherspoons will give them a new lease of life. Hopefully it will be done in a sympathetic style and they will give it a name appropriate to its previous use.
