Could you run this Densole pub?
Are you a hospitality star seeking to kickstart your own business? Are you looking forward to getting out of your business what you put in? Need a new challenge at the helm of a pub with bags of potential? The Black Horse could be the one for you.
This pub is the ideal business opportunity for a first-time operator with a catering background. We need someone who has vision and knows how to put this pub in the heart of the local community.
You will need to be able to use social media to drive footfall and take full advantage of the pub’s ideal location opposite a caravan site situated on the busy Canterbury Road. There’s plenty of potentials for the pub to have a roaring trade in the Spring and Summer months.
We have recently invested in the pub, making it the quintessential community hub. Guests can enjoy a spacious pub garden for the Summer and Spring months with 100 covers! They can also choose from 40 heated and covered areas to relax and socialise outside when it is cold.
We need someone who loves people and food. This business comes equipped with a commercial kitchen to create culinary delights, which will be especially popular in the Summer months. There’s also a bustling bar in operation with an open plan trading room and a large, open wood fire in front of which guests can bask.
About the local area
The Black Horse is in picturesque Densole, a small settlement in Kent located immediately north of Hawkinge on the A260 road between Folkestone and Barham.
You will be running the only pub in Densole, so you will have the business acumen and drive to take full advantage of the competition. You will also take advantage of the trade supplied by visitors to the butterfly centre, the campsites and the Reinden Woods nearby. Visitors to Canterbury are also potential guests, as the city is only 12 miles away.
Closer to home, you will benefit from the trade supplied from a busy touring campervan site campsite opposite. Your pub will be busy, with stopovers before the channel crossings.
This pub is perfect for a first-time operator with a catering background.
This pub has two private bedrooms, kitchen and lounge.
