Ely’s newsest pub is to be called ‘The Hereward’ (formerly tagged as ‘The Barracuda Pub’). The pub in Market Street is owned by the Barracuda pub chain under their ‘Smith and Jones Pub’ brand.
The name was chosen after the Ely Standard ran a competition in conjunction with the Barracuda pub chain. For those not familiar with the legend of ‘Hereward’ can find out more about his local links here.
Names such as ‘The Cromwellian’ and ‘The Slippery Eel’ (actually I like that one!) spring to mind. Have you any suggestions on what the pub should have been called? Let Ely Online know by leaving a comment.
The pub opens in a couple of weeks.
