The pubs of Clun
As someone left a comment saying they have enjoyed my posts on Clun, there is time for one more about this little town as I relive my recent holiday.
The good news is that the Sun Inn is open again - to prove it, I had a drink there. (It's status has been rather, er, fluid of late.)
And the White Horse Inn, for a while the town's only pub, still thrives too.
The Buffalo will be familiar to readers of The Neglected Mountain, but it is no longer open as a pub. It was already closed when I first visited Clun in the 1980s, but seems to have been reopened for a while in the interim. At present it is being used as a hostel for East European agricultural workers.
Next door is The Old Post Office, which was once a nationally renowned restaurant but has been empty for years.
Before that, presumably, it was a post office.
