A traditional country pub, which has served villagers for more than a century, has gone on the market.
The Fruiterers Arms in Bottles Lane, Rodmersham, near Sittingbourne, has a large garden, log burners and is known for its home-cooked food.
There is also a four-bedroom owner's accommodation and parking for about 26 cars.
Owned by Caroline Mackay, it has been put on the market by property specialists Christie & Co.
She took over the pub in 2014 and having made a number of improvements to the business has decided to sell the pub to focus on family life after recently becoming a mother.
Before she took over the running of the pub, which overlooks the village green, Tony De-Bell and Adrian Hall were in charge for 12 years.
James Hughes, senior business agent, added: “The Fruiterers Arms is set in a lovely location, in the village of Rodmersham.
"There is a great opportunity here for an incoming buyer, especially if they are able to negotiate a new free of tie lease.”
The Fruiterers Arms is on the market at a price of £75,000 per annum for the leasehold interest.
It is the only pub in the village, with the nearest boozers being in Lynsted and Milstead, although there is a bar at nearby Rodmersham squash club.
The Red Lion, in Rawling Street, Milstead, was sold to new landlords, Christopher and Hazel Mitchell, earlier this year.
The business was sold as a freehold for £575,000 by its previous occupiers, Patrick and Josephine Coevoet, who had been in charge of the local for 13 years.
The Red Lion was also marketed by Christie and Co.
