Coun­try pub for sale

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

Pop­u­lar coun­try pub The Tiger Inn at Stowt­ing has been put on the mar­ket for £800,000.

The busi­ness in Scots Lane is de­scribed as a “pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion pub with a strong lo­cal fol­low­ing” that prides it­self on qual­ity food, cask ales and a friendly at­mos­phere.

Christie & Co, who are mar­ket­ing the pub, said it is pre­sented in ex­cel­lent or­der, with a main bar and restau­rant ar­eas hav­ing had a full re­fur­bish­ment in re­cent months.

There is also two- bed­room man­ager’s ac­com­mo­da­tion on the first floor.

Robert Cock­ayne, of Christie, said: “The Tiger Inn truly is very much what you would think of as a tra­di­tional English pub.

“It would suit ei­ther an ex­pe­ri­enced op­er­a­tor look­ing to ex­pand their port­fo­lio or some­one look­ing for their first pub.”

The pub is thought to be more than 250 years old. Al­though the ori­gin of its name is un­clear, the lo­cal le­gend is that vil­lagers once caught an es­caped tiger us­ing a table­cloth.

Be­fore be­ing re­named the Tiger in 1980, the pub was known as the An­chor.

The free­hold is avail­able for an ask­ing price of £800,000.
