Located just off of the A2, half way between Canterbury and Faversham, the Queens Head is a traditional village pub & restaurant well  positioned in Boughton high street, Kent.

The Queens Head has recently benefited from an external redecoration and a car park refurbishment scheme, and with the right tenant in situ, there are currently future plans in place for a complete development and refurbishment scheme to the pubs interior.

At present, the Queens Head houses a feature bar servery and coffee station, a relaxed bar area, snug bar and open plan drinking and dining areas for approximately 70 covers. There is also a fully fitted trade kitchen on site.

Externally, the large beautiful garden remains a real attraction for the customers and it is a popular spot for alfresco drinking and dining during the warmer months.

With a significant investment planned by Shepherd Neame, we are looking for proven food loving caterers that can develop all revenue streams at this site and reposition the Queens Head as a popular drinking and dining spot in Boughton Under Blean.

To find out more about our future plans for the Queens Head, please contact the Trade Recruitment Co-ordinator now on 01795 542132.
