Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beneath the Sussex Downs, this charming traditional inn comprises a 45 cover restaurant, bar area with casual seating, commercial kitchen, basement cellar, four double en suite letting rooms and self contained owner’s accommodation in a separate building to the side of the property.
Externally, there is a beautifully presented trade garden with wooden benches and seating for 40 covers and car parking for 20 vehicles.
Offering a host of beers, lagers and wines together with a creative brasserie style menu, the business has built up a great reputation amongst both the local and wider community and there is scope to further increase trading by offering food seven days a week and extending trading hours.
James Hughes of Christie & Co’s Maidstone office is handling the sale and comments, “The Blacksmiths Arms offers a fabulous opportunity to acquire a well established business in an excellent location. There is tremendous potential to expand the food offering and also the possibility of creating further letting rooms by utilising the second floor attic space and converting the owner’s accommodation.”
Christie & Co is seeking a freehold asking price of £550,000.
