Ten new jobs have been created at Market Street venue The Hereward, which reopened to the public last Friday.

The pub is managed by Dave and Wendy Smith and welcomed fire eaters and jugglers – as well as the mayor of Ely, Councillor Lis Every - for its grand re-opening event.

Mr Smith said: “We will continue to offer great service and a quality food and drink offer.”

The pub is continuing with its cask ale selection with Greene King IPA on permanently and another four rotating local ales.
