Pub operator JD Wetherspoon is to open its new pub in Cardiff next week with the creation of 95 new jobs.
The company has spent £2.1m re-developing the outlet on the site of the former Harry Ramsden’s restaurant, in Landsea House, Stuart Place.
The JD Wetherspoon pub, which will be called The Mount Stuart, will be managed by Stephen Fifield and will open on Tuesday, July 9.
The two-storey building was the long-time offices of Mount Stuart Dry Docks Ltd, originally built in the 1880s, and now part of the old dockland area that has been redeveloped as Mermaid Quay.
The new JD Wetherspoon pub will be open from 8am until 12 midnight, Sunday to Thursday, and 8am until 1am on Friday and Saturday.
Photos, local history and information boards relating to the history and characters of the area will also be displayed in the pub.
The new JD Wetherspoon will also be selected local artwork, including historical elements relating to the building’s history as the offices of the Mount Stuart Dry Docks Co Ltd.
Manager Mr Fifield said: “Myself and my team are looking forward to welcoming customers into the pub and we are confident that it will be a great addition to Cardiff’s community.”
