The property features exposed brick and rustic woodwork, with a recently refurbished interior, and trading areas set across the ground and lower ground floors. Featuring two separate bar areas on each floor, the space can accommodate for a combined 76 covers internally, plus a commercial kitchen and basement cellar. 

Situated to the rear of the property is a decked trade garden with bench seating for 40 covers and an additional seating area for 18 covers under a canopy, ideally equipped for outside dining in the summer months and as a smoking area in the winter months. 

The site occupies an enviable location close to the beach in Herne Bay on the busy High Street, providing exceptional levels of passing trade and high footfall to the popular tourist town. With nearby Canterbury and Whitstable in close proximity, Herne Bay sits in the heart of Kent, which attracts a multitude of domestic and international visitors due to its historical and quintessentially English surroundings.

The previous restaurant business which operated out of the site closed at the end of August 2018, with the owners looking to focus their efforts on their other business interests. They comment, “We are sad to leave as this site was our first one with the Cow Shed brand but we are now looking onto other business ventures so feel it is time to hand the reins to someone new.”

James Hughes, Business Agent at Christie & Co comments, “The business closed its doors at the end of August after four successful years of trading as the owners wished to focus on their other business interests within the sector.  

“This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a new operator to open up a new business venture in a great location and with very little restoration or starting capital required. Kent is thriving for hospitality businesses, with opportunities in great locations such as this highly sought after, so we are anticipating a lot of interest from both first time buyers and experienced operators.”

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £59,950 for the leasehold interest.
