A LOVELY RURAL PUB, WITH ITS OWN CARAVAN SITE
The Drum is a rural pub bristling with charm and character. The site is known locally for good pub food as well as having its own eleven pitch Caravan site. This is the only pub in the local area, with the next nearest four miles away, so capturing the imagination of the locals and appealing to those Caravaners will be key to your success. The site has a mixed offer and trade is currently split 50/50 between wet and dry sales. The Caravan site offers electric hook up to each pitch as well as unisex toilet and shower facilities. Internally the pub has some lovely features and is a very traditional village pub. There is also a function/meeting room on site and this will offer a great opportunity to grow trade, whilst also further growing the food side of the business. The pub is located just three miles away from the Euro Tunnel entrance and twenty minutes form Dover ferry terminal, meaning there is a big opportunity to attract trade from those heading to the continent.

I am seeking an operator with know-how and knowledge of running a rural pub with mid market food offer. The pub also benefits from an eleven pitch caravan park on site, so experience of this nature would be beneficial but not essential. The pub is handily located just three miles from the entrance to the Euro Tunnel, so appealing to those with Caravans on route to the continent will be a key market to attract. If this opportunity sounds the right thing for you, then please contact our recruitment team for further information.
