About the Pub

Situated in A.E. Housman's "country for easy livers", this 15th century cruck-framed building with its wealth of exposed beams has an old world air about it. The most interesting bar must be the public one, as its floor with huge stone flags and open fire give you the immediate impression that little has changed for many a year. The theme is continued in the lounge, which is smart and comfortable with furniture including high-backed and coaching settles.

The unusual set of three “Molly Lane signal box” hand pumps is a talking point. These are reputed to come from the Cock in Fleet Street, where Charles Dickens did his apprenticeship, and may even have pulled a pint from them! Unfortunately, although much loved and in working order, they are not used these days. The two bars are linked by a conservatory, to the rear is a patio for fine weather drinking and eating. Clun is the starting point for walk no. 7 in the Walking with Offa series. As well as hosting the Clun Green Man Mayday Festival, the village is also a popular stopping place for cyclists tackling the Lands End to John O'Groats route, so the Sun's accomodation is in great demand on these occasions.

The pub was bought by John Roberts Brewery in December 2013, so Three Tuns beers dominate with normally a choice of five of their range, with up to two more on occasions such as the annual Clun Valley Festival. Since taking over they have given the cellar a complete overhaul and installed a new cooling system. They have also removed part of a wall in the bar area to allow access to an extra room, which tends to be used as a breakfast room for guests, but also acts an overflow when the lounge is busy with diners. The pub has also recently started hosting meetings of Clun's Air Gun Club on Mondays. New management September 2016.
