Pub Layout

Located on a busy main road leading into Chelmsford City Centre, the pub has a small frontage which fits around five vehicles however this would be better suited to an enclosed pavement or kerbside trade terrace. Two entrances take you into two separate rooms, the main bar area as well as the pool and darts bar. Only the main bar currently has dispense equipment for drinks but a small servery does serve the other bar. Both bars are accessible from within, with a large double chimney separating them on the main wall. Knocking through could be a possibility to create a much larger open planned one bar operation. Through double doors to the rear, you will find a good sized terrace area with a covered pergola and a large external out building, currently being used for storage. Development of this space could open far more opportunities. Behind the bar servery is a good sized ground floor kitchen area which is current only used for domestic cooking. A full rip out & refitting is needed to make it commercially compliant.


Currently, The Rising Sun only trades on limited hours for the locals as well as for private functions and bookings. A traditional wet led only pub with occasional and sporadic weekend entertainment. A standard rang of lagers, beers, wines and spirits is available.


Private Accommodation The private accommodation consists of two bedrooms, living room and a family bathroom. The kitchen downstairs is used as the domestic kitchen
