The ongoing redevelopment of a pub in Soham is set to continue after the owners won permission to expand the kitchen and cellars.
Pub owner Greene King applied to East Cambridgeshire District Council to create a new timber-framed extension to the building, allowing it space for a larger kitchen and cellar.
The Cherry Tree is located in Fordham Road and dates back to the 1930s.
Back in April, Greene King announced that the venue was to undergo a significant refurbishment, creating 15 new jobs.
The pub was temporarily closed for an extensive refit, turning it into a ‘Meet & Eat’ branded pub.
