Bunbury Arms

Ixworth Road, Great Barton, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP31 2NX

STRONG, ESTABLISHED FOOD LED BUSINESS

The Bunbury Arms in Great Barton is a popular local pub, famous locally for a great carvery offer. The pub trades at an 80/20 split in favour of food and either expanding the carvery offer or exploring other food options are the future for this great pub. Sitting in a prominent roadside position, the pub would benefit from a great coffee offer to attract morning trade and expand the trading hours. The site attracts families and older customers and is especially busy at weekends. It is also the only pub in the village.

Location

Great Barton is a large village and civil parish in the West Suffolk district of Suffolk, about three miles East of Bury St Edmunds on the A143. The Bunbury Arms sits right alongside the busy A143 main road so attracts plenty of passing trade. The pub is in close proximity of numerous residential homes. Great Barton offers a small convenience store, church and primary school.
