The Fountain pub in Ely has reopened following lockdown with a new set of social distancing guidelines and safety measures - as well as a modern makeover.

During the time it’s been closed, the owners have been busy redecorating the entire venue - including a full refurbishment of their mens toilets.

To ensure social distancing, they have also implemented a reduced capacity and safely spaced table layout, while there are also multiple ant-bacterial hand gel pumps located around the pub.

The owners said: “For anyone who hasn’t been in yet we took some time over lockdown to redecorate the entire pub, including a full refurbishment of our gents bathrooms which we’re very proud of.
