The Fountain Inn Cambridge

The Fountain Inn Cambridge

The Fountain Inn was a popular late night pub built in the 1920s in what is now a Conservation area of Cambridge. With a mock Tudor façade onto a busy high street, its interior was previously a pastiche patchwork of styles.

Client: The Knight Pub Company
Project Status: Completed
Budget: £500,000 (phase 1)

Our client for The Fountain Inn wanted a complete redesign of the interior to encourage more day-time trade and to open up the previously unusable upper rooms for games and events. Planning permission was granted for a proposal including a new roof terrace and extension, function room and second bar on the first floor, in a proposal which has more than doubled the capacity of the pub.

The ground floor bar and entrance area has been completely reconfigured, and the street front has been opened up with large folding doors, and by pulling back the façade a tiled space for outside dining and drinking has been created.  A carefully-considered, modern and light interior design provides new bespoke oak furniture, a concrete and steel bar, and a polished concrete floor.

Both Phase 1 and 2 are now complete.
