Looking to run a pub?
The Mulberry Tree is a lovely community value pub in the heart of residential Margate on the Kentish coast. The pub is a popular place for sports teams to meet and socialise. The spacious and relaxed beer garden presents the opportunity to host outdoor events to attract locals and visitors to Margate during the summer months.
The Mulberry Tree is an open plan trading operation, with a U-shaped main bar area providing a great space where all the community can gather. The walls are adorned with trophies won by successful darts and pool teams over the years. The games area fits naturally on one side of the bar area, with the other side potentially suitable for a food offer, given the presence of a catering kitchen in the pub. Outside, the large beer garden with a dedicated play area offers plenty of potential for summer community events. There’s a smoking solution and parking or 8 vehicles.
Your domestic accommodation would consists of four bedrooms, a newly refurbished kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good condition.
The local area
The Mulberry Tree sits on a prominent corner plot in the residential heart of Margate. This is a true community pub, surrounded by a large amount of housing of all kinds, putting a strong potential customer base of local drinkers on its doorstep. Margate is becoming a popular get away destination for the weekend and is also known for attracting creatives for its arts scene.
