Samuel Pepys is a fantastic, deceptively large, terraced pub situated within a 3 minute walk from the centre of Huntingdon. Huntingdon is home to many local businesses, including Huntingdon Racecourse and Hinchingbrooke Business Park which has many offices and warehouses located in it. The town lies on the north bank of the River Great Ouse, opposite Godmanchester and close to the market town of St Ives in the east and the village of Brampton in the west. The street that Samuel Pepys sits on is a mixture of commercial properties, with hair dressers, restaurants and some residential houses. Behind the pub is mainly a large residential area of privately owned properties. Huntingdon is an old market town situated between Peterborough and Cambridge and is used by many as a commuter town as the station has good links into Cambridge and London.
The pub has a large split level bar area with balustrading to section off service areas, loose furnishings are used to create casual dining areas and also comfy sofas for a more relaxed experience. There is also a large garden to the rear which is fully paved and has a purpose built area for BBQ’s or beer festivals along with some covered area’s that can be used all year round for alfresco dining and drinking.
The pub runs 80% drink and 20% food with a well-equipped commercial kitchen. The food offer is popular and could be capitalised through improving the offering and bringing fresh ideas into the pub. There is also an opportunity to differentiate the pub through a better Cask Ale range and also some premiumisation of the current range of Lagers and Ciders.
The private accommodation which is located on the first floor and can be accessed through the main bar. This comprises of three large double bedrooms with a family bathroom, a kitchen and large lounge.
