In this latest Kent deal, Brachers’ Commercial Property team has advised on the sale of the William Caxton pub in Tenterden, Ashford.
Named in 1951, the William Caxton is a charming 15th century pub situated in the pretty Kentish town of Tenterden. The William Caxton is named after an English merchant, diplomat and writer, thought to be the first English retailer of printed books.
The William Caxton was held by Shepherd Neame for over 70 years. The new owners, husband and wife Andrew Dixon and Seonaid Macdonald, plan to rename and modernise the pub once the sale has completed. Both Andrew and Seonaid are undergoing a considerable career change as they trade in their roles as Business Consultants/Business Coaches for Landlord and Landlady.
Brachers is welcoming an increasing amount of projects in the hospitality and leisure industry and is proud to be supporting local families and local businesses. Recently Brachers acted for a local family run business to acquire the King’s Head Pub in Sutton Valence, Maidstone.
Senior Associate Katherine Morgan advised on all aspects of the transaction.
Katherine Morgan said: “It was a pleasure to support Andrew and Seonaid with the successful sale of this lovely pub. I wish them the best of luck with this new endeavour.”
Andrew Dixon commented: “I would like to thank Katherine for all her hard work on this latest property deal, I am delighted with the service provided. Brachers acted as our legal advisors for our domestic property sale in July as well as our one previous to that, it’s great to be able to go to the firm for both our individual and business legal matters.”
Other recent transactions in the local hospitality sector include the selling of Romney Bay House Hotel in Littlestone.
