Work starts on new hotel and McMullen pub-restaurant in Cambourne
Work has begun on a new hotel and a pub-restaurant in Cambourne, which will open in 2020.
The develoments, which are separate, are being constructed on vacant land between Back Lane and De La Warr Way.
The pub-restaurant will be located beside Lambert Lake and operated by historic Hertford-based family brewer McMullen. It is expected to be completed early next year.
The name of the pub has yet to be confirmed. McMullen said the name The Princess Elizabeth, which appears in the plans and on drawings, was a placeholder.
It will be connected to the 144-bedroom hotel by a pedestrian walkway.
Plans for the hotel, designed by ICA Architects in Glasgow, were put forward by SBH Cambourne, a company related to Starboard Hotels, a fast-growing independent owner and operator of franchised hotels.
It has yet to announce the brand under which the hotel will operate, but confirmed to the Cambridge Independent that the hotel could be in place by May 2020.
Work is under way to create construction access and a secure compound for the site.
