Pub chain JD Wetherspoon opened its new branch in Huntingdon today (Tuesday)
The deputy mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Jay Dyne cut the ribbon on the £2.8million Sandford House pub, built on the site of two landmark buildings in George Street, the old post office and George Hall, which have been derelict for many years.
As a part of the revamp the chain has created 75 new jobs including kitchen, bar and waiting staff.
A 22-bedroom hotel is set to open in October, at an additional cost of £1.1 million.
The hotel will be made of one family, 12 twin and eight double rooms, as well as one room suitable for people with disabilities.
