After five years, the Falcon Inn in Huntingdon has reopened.
Paul Hepworth opened the doors to the town’s oldest pub on December 22 after picking up the keys earlier in the month.
Work is still going on at the real ale venue to transform the upstairs into a restaurant area for “traditional English food” and a function or traditional pub games room. Outside, the car park will be turned into a garden area.
Mr Hepworth, an accountant who owns two other pubs in Northampton and Wellingborough – both called The Olde England – said: “It’s nice to bring back the building to what it’s meant to be. It oozes character from the walls.
“I have an accountancy firm in Northampton but this is more fun than looking at numbers on a screen.
