A rare opportunity to take on a thriving pub as we look for a creative operator to take build on some transformational growth. You’ll be a food enthusiast able to deliver exceptional service and have a clear vision to take The Three Crutches onto its next chapter!

There are real opportunities here to capitalise on an established food business and cement the pub’s place in the social life of local guests with an all year round event calendar and making full use of extensive garden space.

You’ll be an enthusiastic operator who feels comfortable front and centre touching tables as well as driving food quality in the generous kitchen space. You will not only be popular with locals but also able to draw guests from North Kent and beyond. Your focus will be on delivering 5-star quality service and ratings.

The pub and location

The pub is set back from the main road into Rochester and is a great space to drive out of the hustling Medway areas with access to 65,000+ residents. The Three Crutches is steeped in history, dating back to 16th Century.

It’s also a destination pub. Guests drive here from the surrounding towns, but there is also the opportunity to grow local trade. The pub has two full serviced bars with approximately 100 internal covers and a large, well-kept garden comprising 200 covers. The car park is also spacious.

Large accommodation over three floors, with newly refurbished kitchen, bathroom and living room on first floor, two large bedrooms on first floor and a further two attic rooms on top floor, making this up to 4 bedrooms if required.
