A former west Suffolk pub with a long leasehold is set to go under the hammer at auction with a guide price of between £70,000 and £100,000.

The Suffolk Punch in Leiston Road, Haverhill, was a well-known community pub near the centre of the town.

Auction House East Anglia, which is marketing the property, said the pub presents a "fantastic opportunity to bring a community asset back to life".

On the ground floor of the pub is the bar, dining area, kitchen, toilets and terrace area. 

On the lower ground floor, there are three bedrooms, a bathroom, cellar and storage rooms.
