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 pub is about to benefit from investment to enhance the look and feel inside and out, while retaining the character of the building.
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.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning investment in this pub to add a sparkle to the internal and external decor throughout the trading areas, enhancing the overall environment while retaining the character of the building.
Claydon is one of the attractive outlying villages just to the north of Ipswich. It sits just off the busy A14 route through the area and is also not far from Bury St Edmunds. The village has two pubs and a population of about 2,000.
This would be ideal for an energetic and enthusiastic first-timer with good local knowledge, or an experienced publican looking for a new challenge in a pub that sits at the heart of the local community.
