The Market Inn, on Market Hill, Huntingdon reopened last week following a £218,000 investment into the popular listed Cambridgeshire pub. Receiving a complete transformation, the traditional venue’s new look interior sees its seating areas refurbished giving a new lease of life to the pub with a new lighter and more open look and feel. The new look has been designed to compliment the character and charm of the listed building.
With great viewing facilities throughout all areas of the pub, there’s no better place in town to catch all of the best sporting action live with your friends and family, as The Market Inn gets set to enjoy the start of the new football season. Also entertaining guests will be the venue’s new pool area, which has been added to its back room, creating the perfect opportunity for a little competition between friends, as well as live music every weekend.
The pub which was established in the 1930s, is located down a small, unique alley off the market square. The history of Huntingdon is rich, with the town being given its town charter by King John in 1205 and being home to Oliver Cromwell who was born there in 1599. The town is home to Huntingdon Castle which is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument and home to a beacon used to mark the 400th anniversary of the Spanish Armada.
The Market Inn is open every day from 11 am so it’s the perfect venue to pop in and have a refreshing drink this summer. The bar stocks quality beers, wines, and spirits with well-known local, national and international names. The drinks menu also features a good choice of interesting low and no-alcohol drinks too.
The pub is Operated by Christina Mackay and her partner John Curran. Christina has been in the pub trade for over 20 years, as the partnership look to bring The Market Inn back to being the heart of the community, with a host of local events being planned for the pub.
Speaking on the reopening, Operator at the Market Inn, John Curran said: “It’s a great feeling to welcome guests back to the pub once again after the exciting refurbishment. I’m thrilled and very proud to oversee this fantastic local pub through its redevelopment, myself and John couldn’t be more pleased with how it has turned out. We’ve had a great response from our regulars on the new appearance and we’ve been as busy as ever since reopening the doors last week.” The Market Inn, Huntingdon is part of the award-winning Craft Union Pub Company, who were named the Best Community Operator at the 2022 Publican Awards.
