Halfway House in Canterbury Road, Challock, put up for sale

By Georgia Woolf

A village pub has gone on the market.

The Halfway House in Canterbury Road, Challock, is being offered at £190,000 for the leasehold.

It comes after the current owner Subhash Shrestha decided to stand down to pursue other business ventures.

The prominent pub has retained original character features, including wooden beams and open fireplaces.

It has three trading areas, including the main bar and restaurant, a conservatory and a private function room and a 70-space car park.

The site can cater for up to 100 covers inside, with the garden able to accommodate up to 150 covers.

It also has a large garden and a children's playground area.

Mr Shrestha has decided to step down after running the business in the village for the past two years.

He said: "I have enjoyed the past couple of years at The Halfway House but feel the time is right to hand over the reins to a new operator who can continue trading this strong business immediately and take it to the next level.”

Last April, the pub was told it must improve after receiving a one-star food hygiene score.

Months later, inspectors from the Food Standards Agency revisited the site and gave the pub a five-star rating.
