Town centre pub is sold

A GRADE II listed building – thought to be the oldest remaining pub in Sudbury – has been sold.

The Anchor in Friars Street, which dates back to the 16th century, has been closed for more than a year and had an asking price of £295,000.

It is not yet known who has bought the hostelry, which has two bars, three guest rooms and a games room, or whether it will remain as a pub.

Tony Wheeler, of Fleurets, specialised licensed property agents, said: “This key town centre opportunity generated a large amount of interest.

“I wish the new owners every success in whatever direction they choose to take.”
