The mayor of St Ives was on hand to officially open the doors to the newly-refurbished Golden Lion.
The bar and restaurant, which can trace its history in the town back almost 300 years, was closed for five weeks whilst undergoing a £500,000 overhaul.
Councillor Phil Pope carried out the grand re-opening on July 14.
The Coaching Inn Group, which owns the Market Hill venue, said it had “benefitted from a sympathetic refurbishment” and added that 30 new staff members including a new general manager, John Treacy, had been appointed.
Mr Treacy said: “The aim of the refurbishment was to give the historic coaching inn a new lease of life, whilst maintaining its character and appeal to the local community and visitors to St Ives.

“The hotel has had a great reputation over the last 10 years and we hope to build on that and continue to be known as the go-to-place in St Ives for family-friendly, relaxed all-day dining.”
