For the first time in eighteen years, Shepherd Neame is looking for new tenants to take over the successful running of the Kings Head in Shadoxhurst, near Ashford, Kent.
Built in 1642 and trading as a pub since 1850, the Kings Head is a well-established, food led, country pub & restaurant that has been ran by chef operators. Over the years the small rural village of Shadoxhurst has seen significant change and it continues to benefit from ongoing housing developments in the area.
A large, family friendly business, the Kings Head is perfectly equipped for purpose with multiple trade areas to include the main bar and feature servery, the middle dining room and the parlour dining room for approximately 62 covers in total. There is also a large multi-use snug area which doubles up as an additional 30 dining covers if required or as space for private parties or events.
Outdoors there is also plenty of space including a large grassed garden with twelve bench tables to the side of the property, a patio area with seating to the front of the building and a small courtyard garden. There is a large customer car park available with a further small overflow car park for busy periods, together with a private drive and access to the back of the pub which is perfect for seeing in deliveries.
The private accommodation includes three large double bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and a private grassed back garden.
Over the last 18 years, the Kings Head has earned itself a great reputation both locally and further afield as a destination dining pub worth travelling to. Moving forward, we are ideally looking for experienced Chef operators that can further develop this already well trading business.
