Positioned on a corner plot with road frontage, the attractive, well-presented detached pub comprises a cosy bar, a 60-cover restaurant, both with open fires, a basement cellar and commercial kitchen. Situated above the pub is the owner’s accommodation which boasts two double bedrooms, bathroom, lounge/diner and small kitchen.
To the rear of the property is its crowning glory, a modern and stylish trade garden, beautifully furnished with rattan furniture and capacity for up to 100 patrons. Outside to the rear of the building, there is also parking for 10-15 vehicles and multi-purpose outbuildings, which are currently used as a cold store and additional storage.
The pub fits well into its picturesque village setting, and benefits not only from trade within the community but is also conveniently located via routes onto the M2 towards London and the Kent coast, offering prime opportunities for passing trade.
James Hughes, Business Agent – Licensed at Christie & Co’s Maidstone office is handling the sale and comments, “This business is a successful community asset and is well supported by the local and wider population. There is scope to further increase trade by reinstating a breakfast offering and, with approved planning permission in place to extend the kitchen and build an Orangery to the rear, there is huge potential to grow this business.”
Christie & Co is seeking £45,000 for the leasehold interest with an annual rent of £35,000.
