Crown

High Street, Acton, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 0AT

A LOVELY VILLAGE PUB

The Crown in Acton is a traditional country pub, which currently trades at a sales split of 50/50 between food and drink sales. This is the only pub in the village and it enjoys good support from the local community. The pub would benefit from more trade from the wider area and a menu of good quality, homemade pub classics would be beneficial to this. The pub has good space externally which could be utilised for community events. Great promotions and clever digital marketing should be an essential tool within your business plan to drive success at the Crown.

Location

The Crown is located only 2 miles from the historic tourist village of Lavenham and the antique centres of Long Melford. Acton is also only 3 miles from the large Saxon market town of Sudbury. The rear of the pub backs onto the village playing field and hall.

I am looking for an owner operator who can involve themself in the local community and attract guests from a wider area, courtesy of a home cooked food offer. Regular events and entertainment will need to be at the heart of the pub.
