Extensive Refurbishment Planned

Transformational works will reposition The Cross Keys from a tired drinker’s local into a modern and quirky space, perfect for the town’s discerning customers and growing student population. Inside, the trade area will be decorated with an attractive mix of vintage prints, illuminated signage and upcycled furniture. An exciting food and drink offering will create income streams at all points of the day and expand the pub’s target demographic.

The Cross Keys is ideally located just outside Canterbury city centre. Found on an arterial road out of the city, amongst a variety of shops, offices and housing, there are over 6,800 adults living within a ten minute walk of the pub. The nearby Spitfire Ground St Lawrence, university and student union will also create a lucrative customer base for the pub with the right marketing.

This tasteful refurbishment will inject modern character into The Cross Keys, giving it the ability to trade at all points of the day and generate multiple income streams. With premium features, a brand new bar servery, flatscreen TVs, and a private rear bar area, The Cross Keys will now be able to host any occasion in stunning surroundings. This is a pub with great potential, all we’re missing is the right person to drive it forward. So, could that be you?
