Volume notes


This pub is ideally situated in Bury St Edmunds, directly opposite the railway station and close to the A14 with easy links to Cambridge, Newmarket and Ipswich. This high profile, prominent site currently benefits from a large amount of both local and passing trade and has the potential to capitalise from a larger catchment area due to its proximity to the A14. There is also a large residential area being built only a short walk from the Pub which the Station would benefit from as the closest pub/restaurant for the residents.
