Proper Pubs is thrilled to introduce you to one of our most recent invested pubs, the Samuel Pepys.  Situated within a 3 minute walk from the centre of Huntingdon, the town 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. 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.
