The Fruiterers Arms is a traditional English country pub and restaurant located in the village of Rodmersham, overlooking the village green.  Listed on Trip Advisor as one of the best places to dine in the village, the pub boasts a large garden, characterful features such as wood panelling and log burners, and is recommended for its home-cooked traditional food which all help to create a charming, hearty atmosphere.
Rodmersham is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Swale in the north of Kent. It is just under one mile south of Bapchild on the A2 road and 1.5 miles south-east of the town of Sittingbourne, its nearest town.  Sittingbourne has experienced growth in recent years with the town and its surrounding rural hinterland recording a population of more than 67,000 inhabitants.
The current owner Caroline Mackay took over the pub in 2014 and made various improvements to the business during her time there. Caroline has taken the decision to sell the pub to focus on family life as she has recently become a mother.
The sale of this business offers the new owner a great opportunity to take on a well known, popular country pub, which has plenty of potential to be taken even further. 
James Hughes, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “The Fruiterers Arms is set in a lovely location, in the village of Rodmersham. There is a great opportunity here for an incoming buyer, especially if they are able to negotiate a new free of tie lease.”
The Fruiterers is on the market at a price of £75,000 per annum for the leasehold interest.
