Waltham Abbey is a suburban market town in the Epping Forest District of Essex, 15 miles from central London. We understand the population of the town is in the region of 21,000. The Sun is positioned on Sun Street which is the commercial thoroughfare at the heart of the town. Therefore it benefits from high levels of footfall in both the day and the evening. Other nearby occupiers include Greggs, Lloyds Pharmacy and the Co-operative food.


The Sun Inn has been in existence since 1633 and has recently been refurbished to a high standard.

It is full of charm and character with beautiful oak beams, floors and separate dining area and open fireplace. There is a full catering kitchen to support a food offer. Parallel to the pub runs an extensive outdoor area with a fantastic outside bar and BBQ providing a great opportunity during the summer months. There is a public car park directly behind the pub which customers can use.

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathroom.
