THE CROWN INN
A 15th century Grade I listed building and former coaching inn, the Crown now trades as a traditional, family run village pub and restaurant with fourteen letting bedrooms in the village of Sarre, Kent.
Situated between Margate and Canterbury and forrmerly one of Charles Dickens favourite places to stay in Kent, the Crown Inn is a great place to stay or visit when touring the garden of England. Steeped rich in history, the Crown is also known locally as ’Cherry Brandy House’ as it is where the liqueur was first made.
Open seven days a week from 12 Noon until 11pm, the Crown currently plays host to a diverse range of customers including the village locals popping in for their daily pint and catch up, the loyal lunchtime and evening dinner trade, walkers in the local area, monthly car club visits and the transient letting accommodation trade.
Internally at the Crown you will find a central feature bar servery, a bar & restaurant area with an open fire place for approx. 20 covers, a snug with fireplace, cosy corner and a restaurant dining room set out over two levels with a log burner for a further 30 covers. Perfectly equipped for purpose, it also boasts a good sized trade kitchen, a tea & coffee station, private office and plentiful storage.
The fourteen ensuite letting bedrooms are made up of 12 double/twin rooms, 1 disabled access twin bedroom and one single room.
Outside you will find an enclosed grassed garden to the side of the property with an outbuilding which houses customer toilets and storage space. There is also a large private customer car park on site for approx. 25 plus cars.
The tenant accommodation comes in the form of a private cottage next to the pub and which includes a lounge, kitchenette, small bathroom, three bedrooms and a garden.
After 15 years at the Crown the existing tenant is retiring in August 2022, so Shepherd Neame is looking for new tenants to take over the running of this site.
