Feel the new vibe in Wembley

THE name’s not the only thing that’s changed at The Wembley on Cambridge, previously the Wembley Hotel. Former head of Western Cellars Peter Mansfield says the new syndicate of owners has put in new carpet and jarrah floorboards, completely revamped the pub’s tables and chairs, will make the outdoor area alfresco-friendly and is looking at making the upstairs section a spot for business drinks.

“The upstairs bar will be a cocktail/lounge bar for business people and the bottom bar will be for the footy people,” Peter says.

“We still have the televisions and two big screens.”

Plans are currently before council to change an upstairs section of the pub that is currently empty, into an a la carte area, but for now the owners are searching for a new name for the revamped Zeldas Restaurant.

Linda Mead’s Cointreau Ball will still go ahead despite the fact it will not be held at her recently sold LinQ Restaurant.

She says that, even though she is still involved in managerial aspects of the restaurant, the venue simply isn’t big enough to host the event and she is closing a deal to see the ball take centre stage somewhere in the CBD. The Cointreau Ball will take place on October 19 in conjunction with Telethon.

But where will this grand event take place? We’ll have to wait for the official details that will be announced in the next week.
