Three Crutches

Retail Agreement

The Three Crutches is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced, creative, and particular operator to take the reins. You’ll be a food enthusiast with a discerning pallet who is equally knowledgeable and experienced in quality food and service.

This versatile venue boasts themed nights, a roast so delicious guests must book in advance and a picturesque venue for special life events. The kitchen opens from 12 daily providing a fantastic selection of locally-sourced produce and home-cooked meals prepared by talented local chefs. Guests enjoy an inclusive menu with vegetarian dishes, a buffet, and a bespoke menu for special events. You’ll be a people-focused operator who is also the quintessential host.

The pub needs a savvy marketeer, maximising social media channels to reach a new audience. You’ll Ensure that you are the go-to venue for local weddings, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, business meetings and lunches. You’ll also be a sports enthusiast showing all live sport on BT Sport in your Top Bar! The pub also needs an operator who knows what online guests look for when making bookings, building strong Trip Advisor, Google, and Facebook scores on the doors.

There are real opportunities here to capitalise on an established food pub and cement the pub’s place in the social life of local guests. There’s even a complete refurbishment planned to reclaim the pub’s traditional pub features. It’ll be a complementary scheme for a charming building and business with a warm welcome. Exciting work will also commence in the garden, with added heated and covered dining spaces for guests to escape from modern life.

You may be a chef looking to run a pub or have an extensive background in running food dominated pubs. You’ll crave an opportunity to develop yourself as a front and centre operator out of the kitchen. The food quality here is so important. You’ll understand sourcing local foods and putting on a premium dining experience. However, this is not a food chain. You’ll put your personality across, meet your guest’s needs and indulge your community.

You’ll be an enthusiastic community operator who is not only popular with locals but also able to draw guests from North Kent and beyond. Your focus will be on delivering 5-star quality service and ratings. If you want to make a name for yourself, this is the right opportunity to fly your wings.

The pub and location

The pub is set back from the main road into Rochester and is a great space to drive out of the hustling Medway areas with access to 65,000+ residents. The Three Crutches is steeped in history, dating back to 16th Century.

It’s also a destination pub. Guests drive here from the surrounding towns, but there is also the opportunity to grow local trade. The pub has two full serviced bars with approximately 100 internal covers and a large, well-kept garden comprising 200 covers. The car park is also spacious.
