The Dewdrop is a community pub located at the heart of Twydall in Rainham, a large residential  suburb in Gillingham, Kent.

The only pub on this very diverse housing estate, the Dewdrop is currently trading as wet only operation with a strong local community and sports influence.

Internally this pub boasts plenty of space to  include a central feature bar servery, two open plan trade drinking areas, a pool and darts area and a trade kitchen which is not currently utilised. 

There is a large, grassed trade garden with bench seating surrounding the pub which is a hit with the customers during the summer months together with a private customer car park for  approximately 10 cars.

The private accommodation has 3 bedrooms, a lounge, diner, kitchen and bathroom and it also benefits from a private tenants yard and garden.

With the potential to drive wet sales and introduce a limited food offer moving forward, the Dewdrop would suit experienced operators that have the skills required to re-establish the community spirit and make the Dewdrop the primary drop in spot in Twydall.

Available from April 2020, this property is being offered on a variation of our tenancy agreement, giving it an individual approach to certain aspects of the tenancy. A more in-depth review of the differences can be discussed with the Business Development Manager at interview.

For more information or to arrange a formal viewing of the Dewdrop please contact the Trade Recruitment Co-ordinator on 01795 542132.

Non Domestic Business Rates




  • As at the time of publishing, the estimated rates payable, are based upon the assumption that the tenant occupies the maximum of one pub and therefore qualifies for small business rates relief
  • We have also applied the relevant multipliers and estimated transitional relief where applicable
  • Retail relief has been applied to all pubs with a rateable value of £51,000 or less. This entitles the occupier to a third reduction in rates payable after all other reliefs and will run for the 2020/21 rating years. This is an assumption that should be confirmed with the local authority
  • The above calculations are estimations only and as rateable values are  subject to change, we would request that the prospective new  tenant checks the rates payable and any other relief with the local authorities prior to completing a financial plan
