New owners sail in to harbourside pub & restaurant

The True Briton, located in the port of Folkestone in Kent has been sold through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

Previously owned by Kevin Gillespie, the substantial end of terrace property which features an open plan main bar, small stage for live music and first floor 50 cover restaurant is prominently positioned for passing trade with the added bonus of a recently refurbished luxury one bedroom studio flat, which is currently let out, adding extra income.

James Hughes of Christie & Co’s Maidstone office who handled the sale comments, “Due to its locality, this property represented a great opportunity for an operator to acquire a very successful business and we received a good amount of interest.  We have no doubt that new owners, Ben and Lucy Cuthbert, will continue to grow the business from strength to strength and wish them well with their new venture.”

Ben and Lucy Cuthbert add, “We look forward to taking over the helm at The True Briton and continuing the good work that Kevin put in.”

The True Briton was sold off a guide price of £495,000.
