SARACENS HEAD 

Located just two roads back from the main beach front, the Saracens Head sits on the corner of Alfred Square in the charming seaside town of Deal, Kent.

A small and friendly wet led pub, the Saracens Head plays host to a wide range of customers in Deal. Currently the pub is most popular with locals from the surrounding residential area but it also captures seaside day-trippers and  other passing trade.

Dating back to the 19th Century the Saracens Head offers its customers a traditional, warm and cosy feel. Inside you will find a feature bar servery with an open plan trade drinking and dining area for approximately 35 covers and a real log fire place. There is a small but perfectly well equipped trade kitchen on site which is most  often utilised on Saturdays and on Sundays when a traditional home-cooked Sunday lunch is  available.

Outside, you will find a small courtyard garden to the rear of the pub which a great little suntrap during the sunny months and there is free customer parking to the front of the property on Alfred Square.

The private accommodation at the Saracens Head is laid out over two floors and includes a large kitchen/diner, lounge, office, storage, two large bedrooms and a bathroom.

Moving forward, Shepherd Neame is looking for new tenants at the Saracens Head that can drive midweek sales and capitalise on the local business whilst tapping in to the weekend and transient trade in this bustling and charming seaside town.

ESTIMATED RATES PAYABLE - £0

  • 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
