Could you run this pub in Claydon
The Greyhound is a community mainstream pub that occupies a Grade 2 listed building on a prominent corner plot in the Suffolk village of Claydon, a short hop from the A14 and close to Ipswich. It has traded as a wet-led and sports-focused pub for the past 5 years, with pub games being an essential part of the mix.
The Greyhound operates across separate trading areas, with a lounge bar, public bar and a dedicated games space, where customers can play darts, pool and poker. The pub shows live TV sport and also provides free WiFi throughout for customers’ use. The catering kitchen can provide for up to 28 covers. Outside, there’s a patio beer garden and a large car park with space for up to 14 vehicles.
Your domestic accommodation would consist of three bedrooms and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
