Opportunity born in The Barn Restaurant which needs a new owner

The Barn Restaurant in Rainham, Kent has been brought to the market by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.


Located near the River Medway, the upmarket Tudor-style property contains a main restaurant which is currently laid out for 36 covers. The mezzanine floor holds a bar area with sofas and tables and there is further seating for 24 in an area which can be used for private dining. The river can be seen from the separate owners’ accommodation to the rear of the building.

James Hughes, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Maidstone office who is handling the sale, comments, “The Barn Restaurant is an attractive property and could not be better located for someone looking to run a business in a tranquil setting beside the river.

“The building possesses a lot of character and history and would be ideal for a range of different purchasers, including first-time buyers as well as experienced operators. Given the buoyant market in Kent, we expect lots of interest in this site.

“The restaurant currently attracts repeat custom from a wide area alongside a loyal local following. However, there is plenty of room for a new owner to further develop the business to take it to the next level.”

Christie & Co is seeking £595,000 for the freehold interest in the property.
