Sun Inn 2013
The Sun Inn Leintwardine Winter 2013
The Sun Inn has been under the ownership of Gary Seymour and Nick Davis for over two years now. They intend to keep it running as a glorious example of "living history". They want to assure everyone that the Sun is in safe sympathetic hands, both for the immediate and the long term future.
A few words from Gary and Nick:
"We recognise that The Sun represents a precious piece of our heritage and we want to maintain it and preserve it intact, as a working example of social history. To that end, the building work which has now been completed has not changed the fabric or interior of the existing building and has been carried out in a sympathetic way.
The premises are listed as an historic Grade II building, essentially a village pub where drinks are served from the barrel store directly to the glass, the glass is then carried to a separate bar area for consumption, there is no servery and no pumps are visible. In short, The Sun is a classic example of a Parlour Pub and we want it to stay that way.
After many months of meetings and consultation it was a great surprise and huge relief when Planning permission and listed building consent was granted on 24th May 2010. We were pleased to see that the planning authority interpreted the way we addressed the difficulties of sympathetically developing a listed building. In summery consent was granted to provide a single story pavilion incorporating a bar and garden room. This extenstion has now been completed and we pleased it is being well used for acoustic music evenings, traditional bar games and community gatherings. From the outset we have been keen to ensure that we use local craftsman to carry out the work using local materials and sustainable technologies, whilst being careful to preserve what is already a gem of a pub.
The new Eco-friendly build opened in 2011. It incorporates a lower bar area and steps up into a pavilion style room with doors that open out onto a balcony and the garden. So come down to the Sun and see how we have integrated the new with the old. The Red brick bar and Flossie’s Parlour remain unaltered; however the new build now adds another dimension to the Sun Inn.
The Sun is open seven days a week from 11am (17.30 on a Monday)
We are looking forward to meeting you!"
