Date set for opening of chain’s new pub restaurant
AN opening date for a new pub and restaurant in Whittlesey has been revealed.
Wetherspoon is due to open for business in the George Hotel in Market Place on July 23.
Eddie Gershon, a spokesman for Wetherspoon, said further information about the refurbishment as well as the number of jobs being created would be released to the public closer to the opening date.
He added: “From Wetherspoon’s viewpoint it is keen to open in towns where it is not represented at all.
“We have been successful in Peterborough, so no reason to suggest that our style of pub would not be successful in Whittlesey too.
“We found a good site and felt that it could be developed into one of our pubs, which is what we are in the process of doing.
“Although Wetherspoon is known for operating in the larger towns and cities, it also operates in towns just outside major towns and cities and Whittlesey is a good example of this.”
