A NEW pub which has been named by a Wisbech Standard competition winner was formally opened on Wednesday.
The Case, in the converted premises of the former Horse Fair Clinic, opened at 5pm to a gathering of specially invited guests and threw open its doors to the public two hours later.
Michael Neale, 64, from Wisbech, named the pub after The Case is Altered, a pub that was situated near the site many years ago.

He once delivered beer to the old pub when he worked for Elgood's Brewery.
At the opening he said: "My wife enters loads of competitions and she told me about this one when she read it in the paper. The name came to me straight away. I didn't even have to think about it because we always just called the old pub The Case.

The Case is an £800,000 investment by the Barracuda Group and will bring about 20 full and part-time jobs.
Manager Wendy Hayward said: "It's a fantastic spacious pub with a very modern design. I'm delighted to open it up after all the hard work has been put in.
