The Hand and Heart, Peterborough
The Hand and Heart, Peterborough
This Art Deco-style public house, which is located on Highbury Street in the Millfield area of the city, was built in 1938 and is notable for the fact that its internal fixtures have been largely preserved. These include the original bar counter and a "jug bar" which was once used for off-sales (i.e., alcohol purchased for consumption off the premises). The pub is listed in the Campaign for Real Ale's (CAMRA) National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors and is included in CAMRA's publication "Britain's Best Real Heritage Pubs".
One highly unusual feature is a memorial in the public bar dedicated to those who gave their lives in the Second World War which is one of only around 60 such memorials located inside pubs throughout the United Kingdom.
The Hand and Heart was voted Cambridgeshire Pub of the Year and also won a CAMRA Gold Award in 2010 and was Peterborough CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2015. Previously part of the Enterprise Inns chain, the pub was the subject of a management buy-out in 2016, enabling it to expand its range of real ales.
