What will you choose?

There are two companies:
Option 1:
A well-established company with more than 50 years history, which is wholely owned by UK.
Developed company which is stable but product is boring for me (something technical). All local staff, 4 in total.  
Salary is higher. Need to face customers and manufacturing company.
Working location is at industrial building, not very good location as it is quite quiet if I leave office in case working overtime.
Can work longer as its financial should be ok.
Boss seems demanding and strict.

Option 2:
A new set up company. Environment is more international as boss is foreigner. 3 in total.
Working location is better as it is not so quiet and dangerous even I work overtime.
Salary is lower than option 1. But benefit is better than option 1.
Products are interesting and it is a trading company and I can leave manufacturing background and change a new profile for my career.
There is a room for development as it is very new.
I will be the key person if this company can develop and expand if its business is successful.
But as it is very new, it is risky to take this offer if its business is not successful. No one knows.
Culture is relaxing which I like most.

What will you choose? They are both small office.
Will you consider the new set up company as it is more interesting, but the future is uncertain.

Go something that interest you because you spend 8 hours a day in the office doing something that you least interest will make you frustrate and hence difficult to excel. In addition, please also consider economy factor and business potential.

Good luck.

As Lionheart1203 said, you seems to prefer option 2.

Besides, in a start up company, you will definitely learn a lot of new stuff and gain a lot of knowledge.
These knowledge will definitely help you in the long term in this company or any others.

Seems you've make decision to choose option 2, right? No one to know which is you will choose, I think you may concern the career plan in future.

A good relationship with your boss is very important.  If you think you cannot work well with the boss at company #1, then go for #2, or find another opportunity.  From personal experience, if your boss does not like you, your career opportunities will be very limited.  Your choice will probably also depend on whether or not you already have a partner/spouse with a stable job, and how many years of experience you have.  Seems you are not just starting out, so you can take a bit of a risk with the start-up company.

Thanks for all of your support and analysis. Honestly, I really prefer option 2 before the existence of option 3.
But now there is an option 3 as there was an interview suddenly last Friday and this company gave offer to me.
If there is no option 3, I will definitely choose option 2.
For option 3, working location is the best and company structure, financial is the best one.

As I am not young enough, hence, I choose option 3 as I will directly be the assistant to my boss which the company has branches in overseas.
The level of work is higher than that in option 2.

Frankly speaking, I am in fear of losing job when I get older. If I am still young, I will try to take risk to do something interesting and haven't tried.
For option 2, I really have job security problem as I am really worried about the future of the company.

For option 1, I will reject offer regardless of no offer of option 2 & 3 as the boss is so crazy to send msg to me to ask questions at mid-night. I feel that his style is so pushy and make me feel uncomfortable.

Anyway, thx for the replies before!

in my mind,
1. both are risky choices given tiny firm size, regardless the firm age, probably no stable cash flow/ client base
2. given that assumption, I will go for option 2
