About the Pub – The Old Sun Dunstable
The pub has a quaint trading area which is naturally split in to two bar areas by a large traditional fireplace in-keeping with the age and history of the building. With the listing of the building, restrictions are in place in regards to altering the layout. The Old Sun has recently undergone an investment to the rear, resulting in a welcoming beer garden and outdoor patio which boasts well on sunny days. A well-equipped kitchen allows a small, traditional food offer to be served. The pub also benefits from an off the road car park accommodating approximately twenty spaces.
TRADING STYLE Currently, the Old Sun is the busier of the two pubs in the village. Its attraction is based on a premium service, a premium drinks offering and a hub for the village life. As it stands, food is served only at the weekends, which is something that the next operator can build on. The village is very quiet during the day and becomes busier in the late afternoons and evenings. Good weather attracts local families and residents to its good-sized garden and terrace.
ACCOMMODATION Private Accommodation The pub benefits from three good sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and lounge area. The private accommodation is located on the first floor of the pub and is accessed through the bar area.
